Before I tell you about these (local) events I am going to quickly find and post some images that appealed to me this week and you will see why!
...first up...I am going to come along with Mlle Paradis next time she goes to this place....
anyone else coming for the trip? Im not going to tell you where it is...go look here! She has a lot more wonderful places to take us up her sleeve!
....and after that exertion ....
how about this....
or even better really...for all those books waiting to be read.... the perfect spot...
these images come from Robyn at the lovely garden rooms. Pop over now and see more on this delightful (For me just now - escapist) theme!
This window reverie image made my heart leap...perhaps it reminded me of a wonderful home I had in Melbourne over 15 years ago now...or maybe just the aesthetic of absolute rightness about the parts that make this stunning whole - its the kind of beauty I adore in spaces... I want to be there... even though I dont know where is!
OK..now that I have gotten that part of the post out of the way....get ready to write in your diaries.... if any of you reading this actually live in this same city as me... its social calendar time!
I just looked up the website and it is fabulous.... not only that ... I have a CD of music by this musician that I love and have often had classes draw to it so I am really, really disappointed that I have a dinner to attend this friday night when this wonderful show will be on at the Botanic gardens for the World Wildlife Fund. w: www.linseypollak.com
The Extinction Room
|The Extinction Room is a solo music performance piece by Linsey Pollak.|
It is a sound piece creating music from the sounds of endangered & extinct animals.
In this performance of approximately 45 minutes, the audience will wear blindfolds
and be taken on a journey into the Extinction Room….. a sound archive of endangered
and extinct species …… the calls of animals that no longer exist……or may soon not
exist. These sounds cry out to us in perhaps a more immediate and emotive way than
words can describe. They are a cry from the animals that share and have shared this
planet with us. This is an audio Library of loss, of despair AND of HOPE…….because
we can do something about it if we act NOW
This is a solo performance using live looping (a process using real time instantaneous
recording of each layer of music) playing an Electronic wind instrument that plays the
sound samples of animal calls. All the sounds used are animal calls and nothing has
been pre-recorded……it’s all being created as you listen.
and last but not least:
If you pop over to my studio blog you can read much more on this and the venue... This is opening on June 18th and I will fill you in again before then... I am artist no: 4 in the pick-a-box. This will be a lot of fun so come along you Bris-based people...I'll see you there!
PS still painting but enjoying the process... 10 artists over `10 days... very doable!
