live field recording of Canadian literature

White Fang Field Recording (live)

Performed: Bang the Bore, Cafe Kino, June 5, Bristol UK

 

In White Fang Field Recording, I asked four performers to silently read text from White Fang by Jack London. When they encountered words that they deemed to be related to sound, I asked them to read out loud. The idea of this work is to link two historic Canadian practices, field recording and literature, both of which rely heavily on Canada’s unique geographic landscape.

 

Thanks to Mike Pony, Josie Hypatia Grounds, Seth Cooke and Dan Bennett for reading in the video.
