‘Song of Air’ Performances

August 31 @ 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Song of Air is a site-specific composition and live performance by Jen Reimer composed for the Humboldt Water Tower. In May 2022, Jen spent 3 days recording the sound of the wind as it activated the resonant frequencies of the tower. The tower became a resonant filter, transforming the wind’s movement into musical tones, timbre, rhythms, and subsonic vibrations. There are melodies in the air.
 
On August 31, Reimer will transform the tower into a large-scale musical instrument using loudspeakers and tactile transducers that vibrate the material structure of the tower in a meditative and embodied experience of sound and space.  Please join us for her live performance, which captures a unique auditory experience of the Water Tower. Enjoy this soundscape as you walk up and down the tower staircase – there will be no viewing from the observation deck during the performance. 
 
Pre-registration is required. Performances are scheduled in 30-minute intervals from 1pm to 4pm and from 6pm to 9pm. Space is limited. Call today at 306.682.5226 or email info@humboldtmuseum.ca to reserve your spot.
 
Admission is by donation, with a suggested minimum of $5/person. 
Thanks to Jen who is donating all proceeds to the tower’s upkeep. 

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
