Montréal-based musician and radio producer Julia E Dyck invites listeners to immerse themselves in a sci-fi drama in five acts. Frequency Interference explores concepts of automation, posthumanism, and the relationship between identity and voice and looks into the unexplored potential of publicly accessible sonic infrastructures.
Working with mentor Peter Meanwell, Julia E Dyck investigates the possibilities of implicating the listener in the active communal structuring and deconstructing of aural experiences. In her research-based work structured as a sonic sci-fi, Dyck addresses thematic inquiries that characterize and define the present moment: speculative identities, alternative kinships, and our connection to technology.
