AGYU kicks off its 2012 Audio Out series with a tribute to Will Munro and all his multifaceted roles as promoter, DJ, and mentor. The season begins a series of playlists that Will created for his iconic club nights including Vazaleen, No T.O., Peroxide, Xerox, and Moustache. Each playlist will be on weekly rotation, bringing the spirit of Will, and the music he loved, to the halls of York University. Will Munro’s program runs from January 11 to February 12, 2012.
In keeping with the spirit of Will’s support of young talent in the City of Toronto and beyond, the second half of the series provides a platform for the third and fourth year students from Professor Marc Couroux’s sound classes at York University. (UN)FRAMING SOUND, (third edition) begins with “field recording” projects realized as part of the course work for Sound for Artists (Dept. of Visual Arts) by David Borochovitz, Ran Cheng, May Chook, Matthew Clement, Kevin Hua, Varun Kapahi, Martin Kwok, Steven Lam, Angelena Paglia, Connor Phelan, Manpreet Randhawa, Eduardo Rebagliati, Stephanie Spafford, and Kevin Yung, and is followed by a series of new works specifically commissioned for Audio Out by fourth year students Ana Cornejo Diaz, Marcelino DaCosta, Miles Forrester, Jennifer MacDonald, and Brock Wreford.
