Element Choir @ Somewhere There

February 19, 2009

The Element Choir spent two nights this week recording a new CD, and what an intensely magical experience it was!! If you’re curious to see our live incarnation, please come to Somewhere There this Sunday (6pm). We’ll be performing our final show in our two-month residency at the space. Highly recommended!

And if you come for the Choir, stick around for Sarah Weaver’s soundpainting performance. I’ll join a handful of fantastic Toronto musicians for this performance following the Element Choir, also at Somewhere There. Fancy!


Dance Marathon @ Harbourfront Centre

February 1, 2009

Some of you may know that I’m on the board of directors for bluemouth inc., an incredible multidisciplinary experimental theatre company based in Toronto and NYC. bluemouth will debut their newest show (Dance Marathon) from February 4th to 7th as part of Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage. My colleagues in sonic solidarity, Ciara Adams and Richard Windeyer, are in this show, and from what I’ve heard it’s quite the interactive and multidisciplinary spectacle! Roller skates have even been rumoured… If you’re in Toronto, book your tickets soon for the premiere of Dance Marathon.


Performing with The Element Choir

February 1, 2009

On February 1, 8, and 22, I’ll join The Element Choir for a series of structured and non-structured improvisation performances conducted by Christine Duncan. The Element Choir is in residency throughout February at one of my favourite places in Toronto, Somewhere There. If you’re interested in vocal improvisation and/or sound poetry, I recommend checking out our sonic explorations. Concerts start promptly at 6pm on the aforementioned Sundays.
