creative responses


art-inspired arts and unconventional reviews

an alternative response to concerts 
for people who prefer more art and less criticism 

response to January 25, 2016 7:30pm Halifax, NS
(Nova Sinfonia and the Heavy Blinkers) 

Some Gershwin and Ravel inspired Clarineting (I recorded and made a composition out of some of my clarinet improvisations inspired by Nova Sinfonia's performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and Ravel's Pavane for a Dead Princess )

(Open Waters Festival/Vocalypse) 

I was convinced I had to make a video for this one, so it took me far too long to complete this response. I called the video "landscape: footsteps, dances, ghosts, memory"

(Open Waters Festival/Upstream) 

The concepts for these responses were written down during/after the concert, and completed later that night.  There were three works on the programme for this concert, so I created three responses:

Bubbling like a thick soup 

roiling and boiling. 

A stew of gloom and clocks and auto parts 

attended by giant wasps 

and other creatures of the underworld.
