Artist Residency Talks & Dinner, April 126pm

April 12 @ 6:00 pm

Friday, April 12 at 6 pm – Artists Andrew O’Connor, Libby Meyer, and Chase Angier each share a 20-minute slide talk about their work. Talks followed by soup, salad and bread with community members.

My aim is to create a work for multiple low watt FM transmitters set up along the streets of Homer. My time will be spent engaging the local community in interviews and recording the soundscapes of the city at all times of the day and night. This would be edited into a series of audio collages about 10 minutes long. Each loop is specific to where it is being played, a collage of community voices and sounds about that location, the stories, the memory and experience that live in this place. The structure of this work with multiple transmitters playing loops of different lengths, 24/7 creates an ever evolving collage of sounds and stories that no two people will hear the same way twice.” – Andrew O’Connor, sound artist, radio producer and storyteller

Angier creates performances for visual art and theater venues as well as public sites. These intuitively driven works are created in collaboration with dynamic artists across disciplines. While in residency in Homer she will conduct research for new place-based works inspired by the landscape of Homer, and community members who participate in her free workshop. Her choreographic research is fueled by questions: “What can I learn about the landscape specific to Homer through walking? In what ways can I work with the Homer community to learn about the landscape through their lived experience and knowledge? How can I create work that connects the Homer landscape with other communities outside of Alaska in a way that is transformative for audiences not able to be in Homer?” – Chase Angier, interdisciplinary choreographer

“The relationships between people and their landscape create a foundation for my music and informs much of my work in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I live in a small community in the Keweenaw Peninsula surrounded by Lake Superior, and I see a strong symbiosis with the Kenai Peninsula. I would be very interested in working with the local community to inform a new composition for solo guitar, celebrating the connection between a community and the landscape it stewards. I am interested in meeting with the residents and sharing stories from members of the community about their relationship with the landscape, their community, and the natural world.”- Libby Meyer, composer
