Please join me for the installation of my new work Weather (White Noise Palace) on Tuesday, May 18th at the Artesian on 13th as part of the Holophon at the CVAF V concert at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival. The other artists in the program include Eric Hill, Jaye Kovach, Ian Campbell, Ryan Hill, and Ellen Moffat. Doors open at 7pm and the event is free!
Weather (White Noise Palace): This new work utilizes electric box fans and the GUI Gluey tool to build site-specific structures that mimic the white noise-filled environment the artist created to shield her newborn infant from intrusive noises. The work also references the unpredictable and all-encompassing nature of infancy and new motherhood, much like the weather.
Weather (White Noise Palace) was created with support of Holophon Audio Arts Mentorship Program and in collaboration with The Gluey Group. Thanks to Ryan Hill, Fiona Rollo, Mike Rollo, Ernie Dulanowsky, Ronald J, Bernard Flamen, the University of Regina Film Department and The Gluey Group for their contributions to the project.
About The Gluey Group:
The Gluey Group, founded by Ned Bartlett and John Campbell, have designed a tool, the GUI Gluey, to facilitate in the creation of new media artworks by allowing artists to focus on the artistic process and to meet the technical requirements leading from the impetuous to the fruition of their artwork.

I’m performing a new work called Mare Internum (internal ocean) at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival next week in Regina. I was inspired by the wonder of holding conch shells to my ear when I was young and listening to the sound of the ocean inside of them. Now that I’m expecting a child myself, I thought I would share the secret ocean inside my own body in the same quiet and mysterious way by offering a shell with the sound of the baby’s heartbeat inside. Here’s the program description of the performance:
- Mare Internum: A live audio art durational performance inviting passerby to listen to the sound of the ‘internal ocean’ through a large sea shell, amplifying the sound of Goodwyn’s own body, and that of her baby’s heartbeat. Created in collaboration with Ian Campbell and supported by Holophon. Costuming by Lisa Wicklund from Seed and Amber Goodwyn.
I’ll be performing twice during the festival, first as part of the Holophon collective’s Experimental Sounds event on Thursday May 22nd at 7:30pm at the Unitarian Centre on College Avenue (corner of Angus), and at the street fair on Saturday May 24th at 1pm in front of Seed Sustainable Style (3100 13th Ave.).
