Selected for DART Artistic Residency

Excited to share that I’ve been selected to be an Artistic Resident through the fantastic Unscripted Twillingate – Digital Arts Festival! I’ll be creating up a storm in Twillingate, NL for the months of August and September. I’ll be working on creating new audio-visual work inspired by the Twillingate Islands region and recording/experimenting/performing on my beautiful Gemeinhardt flutes! There will be performances at the festival, I’ll be teaching workshops, connecting with elders in the community and inspiring emerging artists. I can’t begin to express how excited I am about this wonderful opportunity. I’ve been needing this in my career for quite some time. Excited to focus on art full-time and to see how experiencing a new place will influence my audio-visual work. Twillingate, I’m so excited to spend time with you real soon!

I GAZE BACK – WORK IN PROGRESS

Inspired by my artistic residency through the Cucalorus Film Festival last year, a new live music/silent film project is being created and it features a new location that I’ve fallen in love with, Wilmington, North Carolina. I GAZE BACK involves a number of filmmakers I met while I was an artistic resident including:¬†Shona Thomson, Mandi Edwards, Mariah Kramer, Matt Malloy, Matt Gossett and Josh Caine. There are 2 films of my own in the mix that were shot in Super 8 black and white and I hand-processed with film professor, Andre Silva at UNCW. I’m currently composing all the music for the films and should have the soundtracks completed by the end of August. Our goal is to submit the project to Cucalorus in order to perform the world premiere it at this year’s festival. Keep your fingers crossed for us! : ) read more
