Sound Pollution II: An evening of textural sound.
Presented in partnership with Nuit Blanche Saskatoon.
Please join BlackFlash Magazine and Magnetic Domain at 424 20th Street West in Saskatoon, below the AKA Artist-Run and PAVED Arts catwalk for another evening of outdoor experimental sound. This year we are presenting the second iteration of this performance series. For Nuit Blanche 2014 BlackFlash and Magnetic Domain selected a series of performers to present drone pieces that were immersive for the outdoor listener.
As this year’s Nuit Blanche is based on the theme of Interstitial Spaces, our selections will be geared towards the concept of hypnagogic states: the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep. All performers will be presenting textural experimental sound pieces that will take this theme as a starting point.
Performances will begin at 9:15pm and continue until just after 11.

Scant Intone is the solo project of Canadian artist Constantine Katsiris dedicated to experiments in modern audio. The output varies from stark minimalist tones to densely complex textures with a sound palette that incorporates elements of field recordings, shortwave radio, hand-drawn waveforms, raw data, and digital sound synthesis.
Longtime electronic musician, Will Kaufhold, creates soundscapes using analog synthesizers and sequencers. His extemporized performance will contrast dream-like drone with aleatoric voltage, DIY circuits, and sub frequencies. http://
