Re-Create 2015 will mark the 10th Anniversary of the International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology. The conference will be hosted by two Hexagram sites at Concordia University and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), core antennas of the largest network dedicated to research-based creative practice in media art, design and technology. The venues are centrally located in vibrant, downtown Montréal – the digital arts capital of North America.

The sound of empty space explores relationships between microphones, speakers, and surrounding acoustic environments through controlled, self-generating microphone feedback.
Amplifying and aestheticizing the acoustic inactivity between technological “inputs” and “outputs” – stand-ins for their corporeal correlates, the ear and mouth – the notion of a causal sound producing object is challenged, and questions are posed as to the status of the ‘amplified’.
