THE NO NORMAL PODCAST

What was normal won’t be again, and the only “new normal” is no normal at all.

Welcome to a new year of The No Normal! New Music Edmonton is happy to return with Season Four of our iconic podcast. We have some great interviews with amazing people from Edmonton and around the world lined up for the coming months, and we’re looking forward to sharing their work and their words with you! The podcast will also include feature stories, conversations with friends in other organizations, and much more. Scroll down for details about each episode.

Our podcast is free, but please consider donating to New Music Edmonton to help support contemporary sound art in Edmonton! You can make a secure one-time or monthly donation through Canada Helps.

Episode 4.1 (December 2023), Welcome back to The No Normal. In this episode, we are happy to welcome Canadian interdisciplinary artist Steph Patsula. The projects Steph creates are focused across a variety of processes coalescing in a union of somatic experiencing, experimental sound creation and lens based ephemera. Patsula’s work prioritizes the creation of immersive art installations and live-performance which explore bodies as beacons and receptors in relationship to each other. Her processes embrace the unpredictable dynamics of working with new materials, spaces and bodies by corresponding with them improvisationally. A technique that reflects a personal desire for reciprocity and intimacy through an attentiveness to collaboration and adaptability. New Music Edmonton was delighted to feature Steph in our 2023 festival, where she gave a live performance of her ongoing project, Sympathetic Resonance, and took a bunch of us on a lovely, if somewhat smokey, soundwalk in the river valley.
