BioSonic! 2023

Mar 10 – 11, 2023
various locations [Galiano Island, BC]

Our new festival, BioSonic! 2023 was stewarded by local Indigenous matriarch Jeannine Georgeson. This event was also the first time we included a youth showcase, which went so well we’ve decided to make sure to continue doing so for all our future festivals. The idea of BioSonic! is to explore the intersections of art, music, and biodiversity. We brought three artists over for a residency at LEÑA to collaborate on an evening concert that included visuals and live-coding with Orca opened by local youth performer Roo Wilson. BioSonic! also featured a workshop lead by Anju Singh, a biosonification sound walk with Modern Biology, and talks by Jeannine Georgeson and Hundred Rabbits. Produced in collaboration with IMERSS and the Galiano Conservancy Association.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.
