ROZALIND MACPHAIL – FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN (2016)
Winner: ECMA “Electronic Recording of the Year”
Nominated for MusicNL’s “Instrumental Recording of the Year”
How do you capture your memories? In 2014, Rozalind MacPhail partnered with six Cucalorus Festival filmmakers in Wilmington, North Carolina to create an audio-visual experience where cinema and live music weave a tapestry of memory, place and identity. Animating the films into one fluid narrative journey, MacPhail’s original music score combines multi-layered sound looping, traditional songwriting, organic electronics, field recordings and loads of flute, MacPhail’s specialty.
“From the River to the Ocean is a beautiful representation of documenting pleasures, pressing social issues, and personal experiences. Audiences are transported to a “time out of time” where the wondrous intermingling plays on between people and place, past and present, and the push and pull of memories.” – Daze Jefferies (Saltwater Stories)
Filmmakers include Josh Caine (US), Mariah Dunn Kramer (US), Mandi Edwards (UK), Matt Gossett (US), Rozalind MacPhail (Canada), Matthew Malloy (US) and Shona Thomson (UK).

LIGHTHOUSEKEEPERS – GOOD KISSING SCHOOL (2003)
Lighthousekeepers provided perceptive, open pop-folk music to growing audiences in Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal from May 2002 to sometime in 2004.
Featuring the wide-ranging songwriting of Neil Gerster, and colliding his cooly expressive tenor against the emotional flute onslaught of Rozalind MacPhail, Lighthousekeepers create soundscapes from ambient drowning songs to peppy toetappers. ArtGirl (aka Maureen Adams) provides the backbeat on a djembe often augmented with surprising delay effects. The band also usually has a bassist around somewhere, and has at times added a French horn, a second flute, a violin, a keyboard, a drum kit, vocal harmonies and junkyard percussion on stage to round out its sound(s?). Even in their standard guitar-flute-djembe-bass configuration, the group’s sound can not be mistaken for anyone else’s.
