Shadow-Walks by Viv Corringham
The process of a Shadow-walk is reasonably straightforward. Corringham requests to be taken on a walk that is special to an individual, a walk that has been repeated many times and has distinct meaning or significance for that person. An initial walk with the person along their selected route, in which environmental sounds and conversations are recorded, is followed by Corringham's solo walk in which she attempts to sense her previous companion's tracks on the walk and to make audible their memories and feelings through improvised singing in the location. Recordings are later combined and edited to become the final work, the Shadow-walk. A Toronto edition of Corringham's Shadow-Walks will be presented during August as part of Sound Travels.
Those interested in participating in a Shadow-Walk are especially invited to attend this artist talk by Viv Corringham and are requested to contact NAISA at firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment with the artist.
