Musician/ composer and fellow Peel paddler Anthony Wallace and I are working on Confluence at Aberdeen Canyon, a sound installation at the Calgary Centre for the Performing Arts (aka Arts Commons). The piece will be a mashup of poetry, music, and ambient sound collected on the Peel. Tony and I have been toiling away on different sides of the country, Skyping when necessary, writing, recording and sharing. No portaging though. Screw portaging. Confluence at Aberdeen Canyon runs from December 16th– April 29th 2016. Hope you can make it.

Thank you to Arts Commons for their generous support of this project. Many thanks to Daniel J Kirk.

      Hard to say, these guys had a sound system set up that means all we have to to is provide the tracks. If I learned of a gallery that had a similar setup, I’d probably consider it!
