Veg out with plant sounds on a Monday night.
Hosted by holophon audio arts' Ernie Dulanowsky, this listening session invites you to rediscover lost, outlandish and ultimately inspiring notions by artists creating sound not for an audience of fellow humans but for plants.
This live, online event builds upon holophon’s series of online listening sessions focusing on soundworks of note.
Dunlanowsky facilitates the listening and provides historical context for the albums and composers, including impact on emerging genres of sound and music, critical reception, influence and the album's interaction with research disciplines and social thought of the time.
This listening session allows the public to rediscover lost, outlandish and ultimately inspiring notions by artists creating sound not for an audience of fellow humans but for plants.
Mort Garson's Mother Earth's Plantasia (1976) and Plant Material (2017) by Toronto artist Jess Forrest, AKA Castle If, have been selected for the listening session. This audio journey takes listeners from the flakey edge of science (Garson was inspired by the book The Secret Life of Plants, written by occultist/former OSS agent Peter Tompkins and former CIA agent/dowsing enthusiast Christopher Bird) to dreamy and genuinely adoring odes by a contemporary musical artist to her beloved houseplants.
Listening with houseplants is recommended.
This event is co-developed and co-promoted with holophon audio arts.

-free admission to all exhibitions;
-affordably-priced and accessible public workshops;
