Laura Kavanaugh and Ian Birse (AKA Instant Places) use performances, generative installations, and telematic networks to create instant places of imagination and connection. As a collaborative team they have travelled the world making Instant Places art on location, throughout the UK/Europe, Australia, Japan, in the USA/South America and from coast to coast in Canada. Documents from recent projects and an extensive archive of works dating to 2001 are here: http://instantplaces.ca/. From January 17—27 2019 they will be streaming generative audiovisuals from their studio in Vieux Hull to the world. The A/V stream may be accessed here: http://instantplaces.ca/pod-dreamers-radio-home/
For the MEGAPHONO performance they will be transforming voice using a touch-sensitive interface to a purpose-built hardware/software system, and prepared guitar through a combination of external effects and modular synthesis.
