Intensive Instructors:

Marcelle Deschênes – composition and multimedia: A celebrated figure in the development of electroacoustic music and art, Marcelle Deschênes is a composer, multimedia artist, pianist and teacher. Her oeuvre is important not only for its pioneering nature, but also its diversity: multimedia performances, photography, video art; instrumental, mixed, acousmatic and application music; radio art, installation art, and animation/creation for non-musicians. Over the past 35 years she has concentrated primarily on the development of new forms of artistic expression that integrate music, new technologies, performing and visual arts and multi-disciplinary teamwork.

Satoshi Morita – experimental recording and transducers: Berlin-based sound artist Satoshi Morita deals with issues of inter-sensory sonic experience. His sonic object “Sound Capsule” received an honorary mention at Prix Ars Electronica 2008 and has been exhibited internationally (currently at the Science Gallery in Dublin, Ireland). At the Sound Travels Intensive, Morita will deal with the use of transducers, and experimental field recording techniques.

David Ogborn – interaction and programming: David Ogborn is the President of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) and teaches digital audio and physical computing at McMaster University, where he also directs the Cybernetic Orchestra. Recent artistic highlights include Metropolis (live electronics + silent film), Opera On The Rocks (opera with live electronics and video) and Waterfall (a collaboratively-produced interactive video sculpture at the 2010
Olympic Games).

Eldad Tsabary – electroacoustic ear-training: Eldad Tsabary is a professor of electroacoustic music at Concordia University in Montreal, where for the past five years he has been developing a new aural training method for electroacoustics, based on perceptual and educational research. His compositions have received prizes and mentions in several international competitions including Bourges, Miniaturas Electroacousitcs, ZKM, Harbourfront, and others. Recent artistic highlights include From My Home to Your Home (a telematic duet with David Eagle for Deep Wireless 2010), Tikkun Nefesh for
trombone and electronics (commissioned by trombonist Haim Avitsur), and Homo Religiosus (an interreligious piece containing prayers and interviews from five places of worship). Eldad is the Treasurer of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community.

Darren Copeland – sound recording and transformation: Darren Copeland is a soundscape composer, radio artist, sound designer and concert producer. He has studied electroacoustic composition under Barry Truax (Simon Fraser University) and Dr. Jonty Harrison (University of Birmingham). His concert works have received mentions in competitions (Vancouver New Music, Luigi Russolo, Hungarian Radio, La Muse en Circuit, and Phonurgia Nova) and appeared on compilation CD releases (Storm of Drones, Radius #3, DISContact I & II, Lieu – Non Lieu, and Soundscape Vancouver). The CDs Rendu Visible and audio DVD Perdu et retrouvé, devoted to his work, are available on the empreintes DIGITALes label.

Rob Cruickshank – DIY electronics and circuit-bending: Rob Cruickshank is a Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist whose works often include custom electronics. He has developed many workshops to assist artists with learning technology, and is the creator of the NAISAtron instrument kit for New Adventures in Sound Art.
