Hello trees…how are you?

7 May

I returned to Texas in February 2018 to document the latest offering from interactive design company Daily tous les jours – a walking serenade inspired by the gorgeous live oak trees at Discovery Green in Houston, Texas.  Accompanied by filmmaker and artist Guillermina Zabala we explored and documented the inaugural installation of Hello Trees, an interactive sculpture that encouraged visitors to send their messages to nature. By speaking into either end of the installation your voice was transformed into both light and eventually a classical piano abstraction – a poetic meeting of nature, technology and music. We hope you enjoy this creative documentation – an ode to Hello Trees.

On The Cities Lips LIVE at BRICK!

24 Mar

As I’m sifting and sorting through photos, video, audio of my time in Texas (I’m working on an adventure blog but there’s a LOT to process…) I thought I’d post a little teaser from the Soiro Bizarro at BRICK during Contemporary Art Month. Thanks to the BRICK team (esp MJ!), CAM, Elizabeth, The Walley’s/dreambored band, Jess & Jeff from hyperbubble, Amy Torok, Keith Seacrest and Dustin Reichert for the collective effort in making this a truly surreal and beautiful night!

Social Pariah – #3

Lyric Video for Track #3

The third track off “The Tides”(Jan 2018) explores the theme of health and wellness – one of my favourite topics! It’s a kind of ode to the inflammatory foods that I tend to love that exacerbate endometriosis and eczema. Over the years my hands have been a source of pain and extreme discomfort – often itching myself awake at night and periodically  having to bandage them completely in order to be able to play while on tour. If you visit the “Concrete Lovesong” video you’ll see my hands bandaged up – finally a forum in which they were useful! The struggle for good health continues – it’s such a delicate balance. Liberation through restriction? Perhaps. I’m still exploring…
