There is more life in a drop of ocean water than most major cities on Earth. Yet, this awesome reality is invisible to the naked eye and goes largely unnoticed. In partnership with Toronto Animated Image Society and Gardiner Museum, Subtle Technologies invites submissions of animated shorts (10 minutes and under) that reveal the interconnectedness of all living beings on our planet through water.

SUBTLE TECH PARTNERS WITH INTERACCESS AND THE MUSIC GALLERY FOR MICHAEL TROMMER’S NIGHT SWIMMER  

MTrommer-night swimmer 4

This September, Subtle Technologies will continue its collaborative initiative with its sister organization InterAccess and partner with Toronto’s centre for creative music, the Music Gallery, to mount a site-specific installation on the West Island of Ontario Place.

Night Swimmer, by Toronto-based sound artist Michael Trommer is an ambulatory listening experience, in which visitors walking the south shoreline of the island are immersed in field recordings of nighttime swims along the Georgian Bay. At once nostalgic and uncanny, listeners are presented with sonic vignettes of nocturnal wildlife, child’s play and family dogs in stark visual contrast to the largely unpeopled waters of Lake Ontario.
