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 “it is in the interactions among musicians and with audiences, presenters, technicians, and critics in what Edward Said has called the ‘extreme occasion’ of performance that music's cultural effects are best observed”.
