Storytelling From Another Era

January 30

View the Event Website»

In this online presentation, Don Hill will lead a discussion on observations, topics and themes that emerge from his installation Story Trees, which can also be experienced online at storytrees.ca. The interactive digital software in the installation tags the tone & mood of oral history interviews he recorded in Northern Ontario in the 1970’s with Anne (Prevost) Hill. Sensitive to the modern listener’s disposition, the dynamic software sets in motion complementary audio & visual materiel in the spirit of a Socratic dialogue; it’s in this way, the contemporary listener is perhaps drawn to different conclusions about what they hear and feel about storytelling from another era.

Don Hill is a sound artist & designer, writer, broadcaster, musician and interactive media producer. He is a former national host of CBC Radio One’s Tapestry. His newest work STORY TREES is a modified ‘responsive architecture’ & interactive online exhibition. Don’s prior investigation of psychoacoustics of ‘place’ inspired his augmented reality app Edmonton Soundwalks, a 3D audio guide for mobile phones. Special Places: Writing-On-Stone is an immersive 360 video presentation that scales from full-dome screens to VR (virtual reality) headsets. In residency with the UK’s renowned Blast Theory he made WRGO (what’s really going on), a surreal 3D audio narrative.

Storytelling From Another Era will take place January 30, 2021 at 7pm. The meeting location is available after advance registration at https://naisa.ca/purchase-tickets/. Admission price of $10 is optional.
