A Place to Listen is excited to present the Victoria Phonographer’s Union for the fifth installment of Victoria’s newest experimental music series. Founded in 2010 by local composer and improvisor Kristy Farkas, the VPU works with unprocessed field recordings gathered by their various members. By layering the field recordings live in performance, the group creates poetic, ambiguous, and engaging pieces of sound art that reveal to listeners new ways of engaging with the soundscape of our everyday urban environment.

“I think that the Phonographer’s will offer a very unique listening experience” says founder/curator Daniel Brandes, “The music that we program at A Place to Listen is already very porous to begin with, letting the sound of the outside world in. It creates a very poetic counterpoint between the interior and the exterior. By evoking/invoking the sounds of other spaces, layering them with each other in combination with the sounds of the actual ‘live’ environment, it should prove to be a very compelling sonic experience.”
