This 3-part sound art series set in Dawson City plays with public places, personal relationships to them and landmark identity, using the medium of guided meditations. Satirical, clever and local, each piece is recorded and written on site. At 5 pm each day there will be a public guided meditation.
Friday August 14th at the Snake Pit
Saturday August 15th at the Quigley Landfill Free Store
Sunday August 16th at the George Black Ferry
The background music for each piece is recorded and edited on site, and a humorous guided meditation script is written. Then synthesizer is added to complete the sound art project. Each piece is approximately 5 minutes long. If you can’t make it to Riverside Arts Fest, then please listen to these relaxing and hilarious guided meditations to connect with Dawson City. To connect with Whitehorse, please see River Guide, my 2014 sound art guided meditation recorded at 5 sites along the Yukon River.
I’ve been trying to learn to listen to my body more, and this latest musical installation is all about that. I’ve converted carboys, foam and rhinestones into large breasts. On each nipple is a tiny speaker, playing a song written from the perspective of my breasts and all the things they like. The song is called, “I Like”.
The installation is on display at Gallery 22, as part of the group show Melting Ice, an Erotic Thawing of the Winter Blues that opened on Valentine’s Day.
The fabulous local brewery, Yukon Brewing has donated beer to fill the breasts with, as beer is the soothing maternal milk of adulthood. The breasts are suspended high in the air, and the music played softly, so that you really have to listen.
