Transmission sans Frontieres, Victoria College, Toronto
Untitled Document

Since I have had some inquiries, here's a quick reminder that "Transmission sans Frontieres" happens next weekend at Victoria College in Toronto, and yes, there are still spots open, but you'll have to hurry.
Because we have to confirm our meals we would need your payment very soon. If you work in radio, and are interested in learning how some of the finest North American producers are pushing the boundaries of documentary, art, and other radio forms, this is an opportunity that you will not want to miss. I can say with confidence that it has been at least a decade - since Radio Rethink, in Banff, - since a radio event like this has happened in Canada.
If you are passionate about radio, and if you believe that there is more to radio than just chatter and playing records, you really should make a point of attending Transmissions sans Frontieres. Take the time now to look over the workshop schedule, and tell me it isn't exciting. If you're coming from the US you might want to know a few things. Although your dollar has been dropping, the exchange rate still favours you very nicely.
If you're travelling from New York or Chicago, Amtrack has some really nice deals to Toronto. If you don't mind staying in a residence room, Victoria College can house you for $47 a night ($34 US! Includes breakfast!). You can add extra days if you want to stay over. And the WHO has declared us once again SARS free! Sign up today at /long version
Saturday May 24th 9:00 start Welcome 9:15 The Idea of North/The Idea of Canada Steve Wadhams, CBC Documentary producer; and Christos Hatzis, composer In 1967, Glenn Gould composed his landmark composition "The Idea of North".
"What we've tried to do", said Gould in his essay "Radio as Music", "is to create what I have grown rather fond of calling 'contrapuntal radio' and tried, rather arbitrarily, to attach it to another medium, where it has not belonged in the past". In 1992, ten years after Gould’s death, Steve Wadhams, Christos Hatzis and Laurence Stevenson were asked to revisit the "Idea of North". The resulting composition was "The Idea of Canada."
Find out what happened when music met documentary on the radio. 10:30 Coffee break 10:45 am Quick Stop Art Spot Chandra Bulucon Created in 1998, Quick Stop Art Spot's producer and host Chandra Bulucon gives a history of this 1/2 hour radio show that started from talk radio and went to performance radio art. The name delineates fast & spontaneous coverage of local heroes that make art for radio play.
Here you'll find the sound art of the century: techno groundhogs, subway yoga, 20 minutes of feedback, an interaction with an artist taking blood pressure of mall patrons with a bicycle pump, and find treats like irregular contests to win a roll of toilet paper or a subscription to a magazine. Find out how this show has lasted on quirky critiques and special tidbits of art nonsense and has been quoted as "the original art noise program."
Excerpts of work from the series Ossicles: little bones and amplification and performance as intervention where endurance and structured improv was a focus. 12:00 - 1 pm lunch 1:15 short address 1:30 pm
The Ear is a Question Mark Jim Metzner Since the 1970's, Jim Metzner has pursued a quest, microphone in hand, searching for sounds which enlighten, inform and celebrate life, sounds which carry a special quality that no other medium can convey. He has produced records and multimedia productions (including features for National Geographic Online), but most of his work has been shared through radio. With examples from short format series such as "You're Hearing America, The Sounds of Science" and "Pulse of the Planet" and longer format series produced for National Public Radio and Public Radio International, Jim will demonstrate how he continues to explore the soundscape through the medium of radio. 3:00 Coffee Break 3:30 Pushing Boundaries in Radio Julie Shapiro,Third Coast International Audio Festival;
