The Library is pleased to present unique sound-oriented and creative works that emerged from the international SpokenWeb symposium Listening, Sound, Agency organized and hosted as a virtual conference by the Concordia University SpokenWeb team.

Entering the Webster Library through the Audio Stairwell one will hear selections from the 13 compositions contributed to the Soundworks project played in their original stereo versions, and in digitized versions of mono lathe cut vinyl records.

Also on display in the Library are the full set of Riso-printed record covers, and examples of the limited run vinyl records.

The sound project was produced by Angus Tarnawsky (PhD, Communication), Deanna Fong (Postdoctoral Fellow in English and History) and Jason Camlot (Professor, English). Art and Design by Leila Gillespie-Cloutier (SpokenWeb Graphic Designer and Webmaster).

The exhibition also includes a selection of pages from Quotes: Transcriptions On Listening, Sound, Agency, an experimental citational book of scholarship that excerpts phrases, sentences, and paragraphs from the entire roster of papers and performances presented at the 2021 online SpokenWeb symposium.

The Quotes curators are fourth year PhD candidate Klara du Plessis and recent MA graduate Emma Telaro.

Learn more about and listen to some of the Soundworks.

Curated by Jason Camlot, Klara du Plessis, Deanna Fong, Leila Gillespie, Angus Tarnawsky, and Emma Telaro.
