Intonal will host a multi-screen installation of his 2015 film, Horse Day, in which Bourouissa captures the urban cowboys of North Philadelphia. Focused on a fascinating equestrian event, this film celebrates these urban riders while questioning traditional images of cowboys. Inspired by US photographer Martha Camarillo’s photographs of horsemen in Strawberry Mansion, an impoverished Philadelphia neighbourhood, Bourouissa travelled there to see the urban stables. For eight months the artist observed, drew, and photographed the riders. With a strong collaborative sensibility, Bourouissa worked with the community, which led him to Horse Day.
The acousmonium is a powerful instrument for live spatialization. In this free workshop, artist Lola Ajima (who performs on it on Saturday night) will tell us about its history and offer an introduction on how it works and how to use it. Participants will also have the opportunity for hands-on spatialization of electroacoustic music, trying the system for themselves. This workshop is for sound artists and experimental musicians who are interested in live spatialization for concert, installation, or theater performance, or anyone else interested in electroacoustic music.
