Exhibiting Sound research creation project
- CA BMUFA 0010
In the fall of 2015, the Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology at the University of Alberta, with primary funding from SSHRC and additional support from KIAS, Faculty of Arts, Department of Music, Museums and Collections Services, Art Gallery of Alberta, dc3 Art Projects, Royal Alberta Museum, St. John’s Institute, and Cape Breton University, organized a symposium "Exhibiting Sound." The symposium took place at different venues in Edmonton on October 30 - November 1. "The symposium intended to advance creative, collective, blue-sky thinking about exhibiting sound: its natures, purposes, environments, and technologies; the processes of its curation; its relation to visual culture; and its role as creative, pedagogical, and scholarly output, across all the academic fields: arts, humanities, social science, science, and applied science."

Larisa Sembaliuk Cheladyn collaborated with the musician John Stech (Stechishin) and dancers Anastasia Maywood and Tatiana Cheladyn to explore and interpret three folksongs from the "Kymasz files". The performance took place on Saturday, Oct. 31 at the Art Gallery of Alberta as part of the symposium. The performance was followed by the Q&A and the four creators' reflections on the creation process.
Maryna Chernyavska, the archivist at the Kule Folklore Centre, filmed the performance.
The collection consists of the video recording of the performance and the Q&A and the symposium poster.
