And With (as dreamed up by Germaine Liu) is a sound walk that invites audiences and passersby to experience the sounds and textures of The Bentway, the streets nearby, and the rumbling urban artery above like never before.
Join Germaine Liu and Mark Zurawinski, the Imaginary Percussion Ensemble, The Element Choir, and the mysterious leader of this procession who is known simply as “The Wizard”, on a sonic journey along the Gardiner corridor that explores The Bentway site, the streets of CityPlace, and The Bentway Studio at Canoe Landing.
Listen as a group of percussionists activates the voices of everyday structures, objects, and spaces by tapping into the physical potential of materials along the walk; the clang of metal, the crinkling of plastic, the hollow boom of concrete. Experience a choir of vocalists amplifying the soundscape of the street, echoing the roar of traffic, construction, and people who activate these spaces on a day-to-day basis. And With invites you to activate your listening and engage with the streets together in creative new ways.
Coexisting and travelling with the performers will be a mobile sound installation designed and curated by Zurawinski, featuring field recordings in and around The Bentway site.
