(Opening, photos & edit by Genevieve Johnson) Close-Up Choreography: The Dancing Cells and Fibers The body is often seen as the subject of the dance. With a different point of view, it can also become the location of the dance. My whole body can move in the landscape of a field through out the trees and tall grass.

March 12, 2021: CREATING SOUNDSCAPES FOR PERFORMANCE AND ART INSTALLATION by Geneviève Johnson

I am taking an exciting audio creation course this semester as part of my Digital Media studies at VIU. It was a little intimidating at first because I am not a musician but it turns out that sound scores can be much other things than music. The world of sounds is wide and fun to play with.
