“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
Join Project Space and SINELISMO (Matias Armendaris, Jacobo Zambrano and Soledad Muñoz) will host a presentation and dialogue about their new compendium of written works. The evening will also include a performance by Aileen Bryant.
In order to protect themselves from their predators, certain species imitate the appearance of wide open, threatening eyes on the surface of their bodies. To appear lifelike, sometimes even the pupil´s reflective qualities are reproduced. The prey thus turns the weapon of sight against its predator, the hunted makes itself off-putting. This makes one wonder whether skin could actually transform itself into a real eye. As Roger Caillois warns us, “If you play the ghost too often, you’ll turn into one.”
