crys cole is a Canadian sound artist working in performance and installation. Active listening is the fundamental core of her practice.

During her residency, cole will inhabit Q-O2 as a laboratory to explore techniques and approaches in interpreting the aural landscape of a space through site-specific actions and sound installation. This process relates directly to her recent installation Tracings (presented in Winnipeg in 2012) in which the sonic geography of the RAW Gallery was interpreted through minimal repetitive actions captured and projected back into the space through an 8-channel sound system.

cole’s approach to sound emphasizes subtlety and discretion, guided by a fascination with microsonics that test the limits of audibility and intentionality. By drawing attention to the texture and delicacy of minimal sonic environments, cole aims to create a heightened awareness not only of the sounds she creates, but of the environmental sounds that arise during listening – and ideally, of the listener’s own self-consciousness as a perceptual body and agent.
