Angus Tarnawsky is an artist, musician, educator, and researcher. He is currently working towards a PhD in Communication Studies at Concordia University. Building on a background as a composer, improviser and performer, his doctoral research examines the social and political dimensions of everyday listening practices. Central to this work is the creation and analysis of site-specific sound installations in a variety of urban spaces. In addition to these activities, he serves as a research assistant for the Landscape of Hope initiative, supported by Concordias Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance, and the SSHRC-funded SpokenWeb partnership. In these collaborative settings, he organizes events, leads workshops, coordinates archival material, produces podcasts, and makes lathe cut records.
