The Plain A.I.R. (December 2018) artist-in-residence is the audio arts organization, Holophon. Holophon will present a five-part series featuring field recordings and conversations from locations around Regina. Collected and compiled during Holophon’s Sound Ecology Walking Tours this past October, the radio series will immerse the listener into different natural environments and acoustic spaces in the city, exploring the nature of sound and how people exist and interact within our soundscapes. Tune in every Saturday this December from 3-4pm.
Holophon is a Regina-based artist-run organization that responds to the artistic development of professional Canadian and international audio art movements by presenting this work alongside challenging and original regional audio art.
Holophon Audio Arts engages Saskatchewan artists and communities using sound and new music as a medium. We produce live performances, concerts, workshops, community events, and educational programming intended to bring an increasingly diverse public into contact with the arts, and to promote the work of emerging and established artists in Regina and Saskatchewan.
