Ultra-red | Toronto Session

What is the sound of the pedagogy of the boarder?

Friday, March 12, 2010, 2:00 – 5:00 pm

Three hour afternoon workshop

Pre-registration required – info@extra-curricular.info
For approximately 20 participants.

Ultra-red members Janna Graham and Elliot Perkins will perform a ‘listening session’ inviting participants to follow a collective procedure for listening to recordings made during the collective’s long term investigations from within the struggles of migration in the UK and contintental Europe. Combining elements of experimental composition with methods of popular education, participants will also have opportunity to reflect on the role of listening in art, education and politics. Participants from Toronto are also invited to bring recordings and statements in any format responding to the question.
