Pathways Shawn Pinchbeck @ +15 Hallway, Arts Commons | Pathways by Arts Commons Presents brings a new media art sound installation to the +15 hallway that will take you on a journey through time and space. Pathways is a sound at piece that explores the theme of pathways, travel, to and from, choices and the journey. The idea of the piece comes from my rather nomadic lifestyle living is several cities to teach, create music, perform and be with family. I travel with a handy sound recorder; accumulating a large library of field recordings, soundscapes and noises that I use to create my various performances and sound art projects. Pathways will take the listener on a sonic journey exploring many aspects of these sounds, compositional structures, frequency and space as listeners travel from one place to another through the soundspace. Artist Biography Shawn Pinchbeck is an Edmonton, Alberta based electroacoustic music composer, new media artist, performer, installation artist, teacher, curator, and sound engineer.Shawn's performance works and installations have been presented widely at numerous festivals and exhibits across Canada and Europe. He collaborates extensively, creating works with artists of all backgrounds most recently focusing on music for contemporary dance and live cinema performances.Shawn holds a PhD in electroacoustic music composition from the University of Birmingham where he studied with Dr. Jonty Harrison.
