SOUNDS FROM THE MYSTIC BEACH: escape winter daze on radio waves | Week 3 of 12
Wednesday, February 10, 2021 on CJSW 90.9 FM
The Research Council (Rebecca Reid & Ryan Bourne)
The third theme of The Hibernation Project featured sound art, spoken word, guided meditation comedy, poetry, and music works, originally aired on CJSW 90.9 fm (our local campus & community radio station). With this theme, artists were invited to consider sound as an invisible medium with incredible power to transport the listener places. There is a role for escapism in surviving winter in Canada. In an era increasingly moderated by screens, digital stimulus, and external communications, we wonder, is “the mystic beach” a paradise outside reality? The utopia within? Or something else entirely?
Thanks to the artists, and to everyone who tuned in and travelled to the Mystic Beach with us. Gratitude to CJSW 90.9 FM for hosting this Hibernation theme, especially Jasmine Vickaryous and Adam Kamis. Be sure to check out Chris Locke’s ongoing podcast Happy Good, from the Sonar Network.
