Behind the spectacular performances and innovative acoustic installations the heart of Sound Symposium is the meeting of the creative minds that come to St. John's, Newfoundland every two years for this unique international festival experience. The “symposium” of Sound Symposium is when artists collide and create something new and special. Sometimes it is organized collaboration or major pieces, other times its just hanging out waiting for your rehearsal space to be prepared.
Monday afternoon, if you were around the bottom of Victoria Street near the LSPU Hall, you would have heard the unique sound of Appalachian blue grass tunes mixed with the minor notes of eastern European gypsy music. For 20 minutes, Tim Postgate, banjo, and Duane Inglish and Bryann Albanese swapped notes and tunes.
