Sounds Provocative: Experimental Music Performance in Canada, directed by Dr. Ellen Waterman (Associate Professor in the School of Fine Art and Music at the University of Guelph), is a research project concerned with documentation, performance analysis, and dissemination of Canadian experimental music by creative improvisers, live electronic and computer musicians, composer/performers, and intermedia artists. Sounds Provocative is primarily devoted to live performances, with the belief that â€œit is in the interactions among musicians and with audiences, presenters, technicians, and critics in what Edward Said has called the â€˜extreme occasionâ€™ of performance that music's cultural effects are best observedâ€.
