For the past seven weeks or so I’ve been up in beautiful Banff, AB, being inspired by the mountains and juggling a number of different projects. I am participating in the Winter Creative Residency at the Banff Centre, which is a program that allows artists time to reflect and work on self-directed projects. I’ve been exploring breath in music with a custom-made textile biofeedback device. On the side I’ve begun work on a new environmental sound installation (still in the top-secret planning phase), a collaboration exploring texture with abstract filmmaker and animator Stephanie Maxwell, and a few other things. I’ve got less than three weeks left and can’t quite believe how quickly the time has flown!
