You’re Invited: Cocoa with the Quarterly

BY NQ

December 2017

We’re having a party!

The Newfoundland Quarterly would like to invite you and yours to an extra-cozy event in the dining area of Rocket Bakery on Wednesday December 13th from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM.

Cocoa at the Quarterly will be a laid-back family-friendly event. We’ll share some stories from our Canada 150 themed special print edition and our new website NQonline.ca, eat cookies, drink hot chocolate, and enjoy holiday music courtesy of St. John’s favorites, Joanna Barker and High and Lonesome. Readers include Emily Deming, Matthew Hollet, and Katie Vautour.

Admission is free.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

Teresa Connors’ Immersive Audio-Visual Installation Currents at Sound Symposium XIX

BY Eva Crocker

Suddenly ripples started appearing on the large screen, like you see on the surface on of a pond at the beginning of a downpour. On two of the smaller screens the tide tugged unfurled waves back out into the bay; another showed mint-coloured lichen on a grey rock; a third played water gurgling in and out of a tide pool. I could feel the bunny-rabbit thump of blood coursing through my heart and it was correlating with the steady tick in the soundscape.
