ABOUT THE SHOW

Special presentation of work from John Oswald in collaboration with the Edward Day gallery.

John Oswald, laureate of the 2004 Governor General's Awards in Visual and Media Arts, "is, in the truest sense, a multi-disciplinary artist. A media/sound artist, composer, performance and dance artist, he defies categorization: everything is material for his art. He coined the term " plunderphonics " in the late 80s to describe his plundering, or appropriating, well-known music and images and manipulating them in original ways. Oswald has an international reputation as a leading contemporary composer. The Globe and Mail called his most recent work, Aparanthesi , a "mystical experience." He premiered a solo dance opera Spinvolver (with Susanna Hood) in Berlin in 2003. He explores his electroacoustic creativity as Director of Research at Toronto 's Mystery Lab. John Oswald lives in Toronto." - Canada Council of the Arts
