FRIDAY 31st JULY, 7.45 (BST) TIMES IN SOUND, LETTERS OF WAR
CANADIAN WAR LETTERS
Join Canadian Mary McDonald, Program Delivery Lead for Pinnguaq (a not-for-profit organization based in Lindsay, Ontario), for the premiere of her mammoth, geo-located sound project, Times in Sound, Letters of War. Drawing from the Canadian Letters and Images project of Vancouver Island University, Mary has composed and mapped letters written to and from WWI soldiers and their families who were located in Southwestern Ontario; (within 150 km radius of her home in London, Ontario). Uncovering poignant and historically revealing statements, or often heart-rending final words, Mary explores the power of sound and place with this mapped and geo-located sound work, where fragments from the letters serve as both lyric and note.
