Mira Martin-Gray Artist Talk | Constructive Feedback: Political Potential in Experimental Music
Presented by Send + Receive in partnership with Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba
Join artist and improvisor Mira Martin-Gray for a talk about feedback, her own artistic practice, as well as identity politics and emotional self-expression in experimental music.
Mira Martin-Gray is an improviser and reluctant composer preoccupied by feedback, probing the intersections between noise and melody, drone and rhythm, indeterminacy and control. Reclaiming undesirable sounds, she wields the emotionally expressive power of abstract music to counter dominant cultures of (un)desirability. A multi-instrumentalist, disability led her to find means of making music accessibly.
When: October 20, 2019 2pm-3pm
Where: Plug in ICA, 460 Portage Avenue
