PastedGraphic-1Evidence is a collaboration between sound artists Stephan Moore and Scott Smallwood. Since 2001, they have developed a distinctive language of deeply layered sound, using field recordings of natural and industrial sounds as a primary source of inspiration and sonic material. Their activities range from studio compositions and live improvisations to sound installations, street performances, and numerous collaborations with other musicians, choreographers, and video artists. They have presented their work world-wide, including recent appearances at the Balance-Unbalance Conference in Manizales, Colombia, the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) Conference in Brisbane, Australia, and at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in upstate New York.

A Nonesuch Collaborative Residency : Lancaster, Smallwood, Waldron

Lancaster Elsewhere Exhibition 360 gel transfers on wood

This July Main & Station is delighted to welcome back artist Sydney Lancaster and geologist John Waldron, and to introduce composer Scott Smallwood to Parrsboro.

The team are collaborating on a multidisciplinary project that will “explore both the limitlessness of the tide’s ebb and flow, and the limits of human capacity to comprehend time on that immense scale”.

This summer is a 2 week Research & Development Residency, to plan and develop a new site-specific sculptural installation responding to the tidal range in the Bay of Fundy. The goal is to scout potential locations for an installation, meet with local people (potential collaborators) and get to know the area.  The team will also be learning about local materials and trying some experiments to see what might best be used for the work, a large-scale site-based sculptural installation which they hope to create and document in summer 2017.
