Christian Scott is a mexican-canadian artist-researcher who uses poetry, field recordings, soundscapes and body/movement to explore themes of interconnectedness, memory, and identity in the city – among humans and non-humans. They are a PhD candidate in Concordia’s INDI program and a collaborator of the Performative Urbanism Lab (PULSE). They produce and perform under the moniker Jupiter in 7th. Christian’s Practice set will take participants in a journey of expanded emotions and sensations, poetics and everyday-life questions. (Photo by Sophie Churlaud)
► ABOUT PRACTICE
Practice is an investigation of the capability of sound to induce different transcendental states of awareness and being. Through a series of noise sets, practice explores the experiential application of theories underpinning the transformational properties of sound, such as cymatics, music therapy, sound healing, brain entrainment, and binaural-beat perception.
Each session features a noise artist, who, informed by their own knowledge of sound, creates a immersive set intended to bend consciousness. listeners are encouraged to embrace a receptive, meditative attitude during sets.
We don’t mind if you’re new or old to noise or meditation.
If you’re curious to be engaged, to open yourself to new experiences and to hear some noise, then join us.
We have yoga mats available to use and listeners are invited to bring their own sitting paraphernalia if they please.
We would like all guests to be able to participate, so please arrive on time. Seating is limited: first come, first served.
