“Sound at Sunset started as a series of free sound events, held in the back parking lot space of Sunset Terrace. Curated by artist Soledad Fatima Muñoz, the event’s primary focus is in the opening of instances of cultural creation through experimental music performances and sound-art explorations, in order to instigate a greater sense of community. With a loose and ever-changing format S@S – which is celebrating its 7th session – took many forms, and even crossed the water, for session 4 in the Sunshine Coast (changing its name for a night to Sounds at Sunshine). The series has featured the participation of numerous local artists: Alexi Baris, Maya Beaudry, Jaymes Bowman, Aileen Bryant, John Burgess, D.Tiffany, Stefana Fratila, Steven Hubert, Paul Lucas, Chandra Melting Tallow, regularfantasy, Daniel Rincon, Ellis Sam, Jonathan Scherk, Chad Thiessen,Young Braised and x/o.
For this special instance Sounds at Sunset will be held at the iconic artist run centre VIVO for Swarm. In order to keep up with the occasion, it will be held in a multi-room environment (including the parking lot) and its aim will be, once more, to showcase the diverse faces of performance, installation, visual and sound art in order to create strong collective experiences that give people a much needed sense of *togetherness.*”- Soledad Fatima Muñoz
