Getting set up @ Fort York for Art Spin Toronto 6/27/2013

This one is going up a little late, but a great multi-sensory collab  went down at Toronto Art Spin last week, which evolved from that “Sound & Light” residency last Spring at Somewhere There . Guitarist Arnd Jurgensen, whom Michael Kaler had recruited to be part of a few ‘random’ ensembles, was this time in  position to do some recruiting, and did just that, putting together an ensemble that included Kaler, saxophonist Paul Newman, and drummer Ambrose Pottie. I held the projection chair, and our spontaneous performance at Fort York was one of several stops on the bike trail for this edition of Art Spin.

“There’s no such thing as improvisation. There’s only composition. Only you do it quickly; you’re composing on the spot.”
-Jerry Garcia

The projectors will crackle, Kyle Haight will be doing live painting, and some other guests TBA will be in the house to complete the experience. Join us.

Somewhere There Light Projections #2

A little bit of background this time: Somewhere There, Toronto’s experimental music hub, generously offered lightsweetcrude a May/June 2012 residency. We did one in March/April of last year, and it really did something great, but this year not everyone could commit. Ken Aldcroft encouraged me to come up with something else instead as I was declining, so Michael Kaler and I agreed to collab on this, with him curating a ensemble (with a few variations week-to-week) playing improvised music, and my contribution: fire up the overhead projectors, and trip the light fantastic. This week it was: Michael Kaler, bass, Connie Nowe, drums, Paul Newman, sax, and Arnd Jurgensen, guitar.






The residency continues May 27th.
