Garden City Colours // “ThatWas”

In The Soil definitely provided an exciting opportunity for this installation, situating us in the “hub”, or ‘meeting place’ for the Rhizomes component of the festival. This feature is a set of organized tours of a special collection of installations set up in a particular location, which took place this year in the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine & Performing Arts on the campus of Brock U. We were located in the building’s theatre space, and Michael Kaler’s bass signal, and the output of my laptop and Kaoss Pads were fed into the PA, allowing this installation to provide a complete environment (though the visuals were limited to a single screen). Deanna Jones‘ tour announcements added an extra sonic element to the drone + bass enveloping the space. There were two hive sessions that each lasted 2 hours: one in the afternoon, and another that  ran from 10pm to 12am.

The St. Catharines Standard seemed to dig it:

Happy 2014!

Happy New Year! Nothing like a new calendar year to force you to complete last year’s “to do list”, and posting this footage from the Summer was on there….definitely a favourite 2013 moment.
