Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay: The Lovers

September 20, 2014, 7:00pm–1:00am
Nuit Blanche Calgary, Civic Plaza Parkade Park

Esker Foundation is pleased to support the production of Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay’s Nuit Blanche Calgary project, The Lovers. The Lovers is a spatialized sound installation broadcast through a series of speakers distributed throughout Calgary’s downtown Civic Plaza Parkade Park. Designed to act as an ambiguous, temporary monument, The Lovers combines the sounds of bells and human voices and will transmit a message for the listener to slowly and carefully decode. The composition was recorded in both Berlin and Calgary with members of the Calgary Boys’ Choir (which once counted Nemerofsky as a member) lending their voices.
