by JFI staff

A presentation and workshop with Jeffrey Martin, Joggins Fossil Institute’s 2019 ArtScape Artist-In-Residence, on Sunday, August 4, 2019.

Composer Jeffrey Martin will provide a presentation and family workshop at the Joggins Fossil Centre.

At 11 am, Jeffrey presents Soundscape composition: An introduction, and familiarizes participants with soundscape composition, a form of sound-based music. He also leads a discussion of soundscape, soundwalking and acoustic ecology, presents excerpts from other soundscape composers’ works, as well as an overview of his own, current soundscape project, Sounding Cliffs. This presentation is free and open to the public.

At 2 pm, Jeffrey leads a family workshop entitled Composing with Everyday Sounds.

Participants learn how to edit, transform and arrange recordings of sounds from everyday environments to create interesting compositions. No experience is necessary; but younger participants would benefit from the guidance of parents/guardians or older siblings.

Participants must bring their own laptop computer and headphones. All other material will be provided. And the workshop is free but registration is necessary. Contact Laurie at 902-251-2727 Ext 224 or email: <

The ArtScape Artist-in-Residence program is sponsored by ArtsNS, ArtsNB and the Municipality of the County of Cumberland.
