Arts Commons Presents:
Morose Code from sound artist Kerry Maguire
CALGARY – Arts Commons Presents brings a new media art sound installation to the +15 hallway that will take you on a journey through time and space. Morose Code allows passersby to experience multilayered radio waves as they move away from earth into the infinite vacuum of space.
Made up of hours of collaged historical radio broadcasts, music, interference, and human presence, Morose Code gives you the feeling of floating through space, experiencing the sound of humanity from lightyears away.
“Morose Code is an approximation of a journey that has yet to be taken: as you walk east to west and you go backwards in time, away from the earth. Walking west to east brings you forward in time, toward the earth,” says artist Kerry Maguire.
The Arts Commons +15 Soundscape is a unique multichannel sound system that provides sound art opportunities to local and national sound artists, which is available for passersby to freely experience.
