Post-Performance, Pre-Exhibition

We had a marvellous time on Sunday, presenting “Macromareal Prelude: In Fog and Storm and Rain” ! Everything fell into place so beautifully – we had planned to present at the beach, but the forecast pre-empted that idea – but Plan B turned out to be so great! No regrets there! Deep thanks to all […]

It became readily apparent that these two musicians have worked together for some time – but […]

She was in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on a short visiting-friends-and-seeing-new-things holiday, and fortuitously, it worked out that she could come to Parrsboro for a couple of days. We started at Partridge Island and the beach below Ottawa House, and then headed out to First Beach […]

One of the great things about doing this residency is the opportunity to see my collaborator Scott Smallwood in action, both as an sound artist and a composer. So I’m really excited to say that Scott and another of his collaborators, Stephan Moore, will be in Parrsboro on Thursday July 27th to do a performance […]
