Intensive Instructors:

Christian Calon - composition: At the crossroads of radio, installation,
acousmatics and improvisation (with Theresa Transistor), Christian Calon's
award winning projects have in common the exploration of the listening
experience and the perception of Time. Progressively his works tend to take
a para-musical approach, in which models of reality take a central function.
He is currently working on a new media installation. A free-lance artist, he
lives in Montreal.

Satoshi Morita - experimental recording and transducers: Berlin-based sound
artist Satoshi Morita deals with issues of inter-sensory sonic experience.
His sonic object "Sound Capsule" received an honorary mention at Prix Ars
Electronica 2008 and has been exhibited internationally (currently at the
Science Gallery in Dublin, Ireland). At the Sound Travels Intensive, Morita
will deal with the use of transducers, and experimental field recording

David Ogborn - interaction and programming: David Ogborn is the President of
the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) and teaches digital audio and
physical computing at McMaster University, where he also directs the
Cybernetic Orchestra. Recent artistic highlights include Metropolis (live
electronics + silent film), Opera On The Rocks (opera with live electronics
and video) and Waterfall (a collaboratively-produced interactive video
sculpture at the 2010 Olympic Games).

Eldad Tsabary - electroacoustic ear-training: Eldad Tsabary is a professor
of electroacoustic music at Concordia University in Montreal, where for the
past five years he has been developing a new aural training method for
electroacoustics, based on perceptual and educational research. His
compositions have received prizes and mentions in several international
competitions including Bourges, Miniaturas Electroacousitcs, ZKM,
Harbourfront, and others. Recent artistic highlights include From My Home to
Your Home (a telematic duet with David Eagle for Deep Wireless 2010), Tikkun
Nefesh for trombone and electronics (commissioned by trombonist Haim
Avitsur), and Homo Religiosus (an interreligious piece containing prayers
and interviews from five places of worship). Eldad is the Treasurer of the
Canadian Electroacoustic Community.

Darren Copeland - sound recording and transformation: Darren Copeland is a
soundscape composer, radio artist, sound designer and concert producer. He
has studied electroacoustic composition under Barry Truax (Simon Fraser
University) and Dr. Jonty Harrison (University of Birmingham). His concert
works have received mentions in competitions (Vancouver New Music, Luigi
Russolo, Hungarian Radio, La Muse en Circuit, and Phonurgia Nova) and
appeared on compilation CD releases (Storm of Drones, Radius #3, DISContact
I & II, Lieu - Non Lieu, and Soundscape Vancouver). The CDs Rendu Visible
and audio DVD Perdu et retrouvé, devoted to his work, are available on the
empreintes DIGITALes label.

Rob Cruickshank - DIY electronics and circuit-bending: Rob Cruickshank is a
Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist whose works often include custom
electronics. He has developed many workshops to assist artists with learning
technology, and is the creator of the NAISAtron instrument kit for New
