Thank you to everyone who joined us Saturday morning to experience a true Dawn Chorus. The vivid light and wondrous soundscape made for a rare and memorable experience. We hope to see you again (and others too) at our next sound ecology activity. Watch for details to come later this summer.
Holophon's Sound Ecology Dawn Chorus activity is tomorrow!
Here is a photo of our site, taken today. We will be there listening together the next time the sun rises.
There is still time to register, if you would like to attend.
We muster at the Chapter's parking lot, Southland Mall at 3:45am, leaving for the site promptly at 4:00am.
We hope you can join us!

Holophon Audio Arts Presents
Sound Ecology: Dawn Chorus
with artist-guides Heather Peat Hamm and Charlie Fox
Saturday, May 18, 2019
Departing 4:00am (sharp!) from Chapters Parking lot, Southland Mall, Regina
Experience a true Great Plains dawn chorus. Break out of your morning routine and be guided into the soul-bending soundscape of a sunrise bird symphony on native prairie, an increasingly rare and precious landscape. A rare opportunity, it will be worth the price of a few hours’ sleep!
Sound Ecology: Dawn Chorus will take place on a managed area of native prairie pasture South of Regina approx 90km. We will leave Regina as a group from the parking lot in front of the Chapters bookstore at the Southland Mall. 2625 Gordon Rd, Regina.
Please register in advance to help us with planning transportation and rideshares.
Our location is true natural prairie, and as such we will be minimizing the number of vehicles on the land, and no disposable cups or utensils will be provided. There will be coffee, tea, and muffins, and we ask that you bring your own mugs and plates if you are able.
This is a very early morning outdoor activity. Please remember to bring warm clothing and be prepared to spend at least two hours in the environment.

Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative and Holophon Audio Arts Present a Screening Under the Steeple at Cathedral Village Arts Festival 2019
Sight on Sound
Wednesday, May 22
Artesian on 13th
Reception 5pm / Screening 6pm
Newly commissioned moving-image works from local artists:
Amalie Atkins / Gerald Saul / Lindsey Rewuski / Jacob Farrell
Sight on Sound engages four Saskatchewan-based filmmakers and moving image artists to create new work in response to existing sound art or experimental music compositions. Since January the artists have worked independently, exploring, filming, creating, and editing, and the results will be screened at the Artesian on 13th during the Cathedral Village Arts Festival. Following the screening, there will be a conversation with the artists. Join us beforehand between 5-6pm for a reception with the artists downstairs at the Artesian Bar, and sound art DJ provided by Holophon.
Sight on Sound is made possible through support from Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative, Holophon Audio Arts, Cathedral Village Arts Festival, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
Holophon Audio Arts has a bandcamp page! Check out our Sound Ecology ASMR Podcast Series and other releases there. All proceeds go to supporting Holophon’s work as a non-profit artist-run organization in Saskatchewan. *
