PHI Foundation 465 Saint-Jean Street, Room G6

Friday, February 23, 2024
From 7 PM to 9 PM

Free admission
No reservation required

For their intervention, the Very Low Frequency Dub Collective (VLFDC) will explore the space of Rirkrit Tiravanija’s untitled 1996 (rehearsal studio no. 6) (2023) for very low frequency (VLF) radio signals. 

These will be diffused into the room as amplified sounds and transduced vibrations—with additional beats introduced on turntables. Resonances that emerge will be captured with ambient microphones, and will be recorded live to lathe cut records that will then be remixed back into the evolving soundscape. This process will be repeated throughout the length of the performance, resulting in a cascading buildup of revealed frequencies.

The VLFDC includes Owen Chapman and several artists/students – Alanna Stuart (SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship recipient, Toronto Arts Council Leaders Lab Fellow, Radio Starmaker Fund board member, and MA student in Cultural Studies at Queen’s University), Angus Tarnawsky (Communication Studies PhD student at Concordia University), Nik Forrest (PhD candidate in the Interdisciplinary Humanities program at Concordia University), Thea Chapman (BA student in Communication Studies at Concordia University), and Warsame Isse (MA in Media Studies student at Concordia University).
