Hi <<First Name>>,

Fall is such an exciting time of completion and new beginnings.
Lots has happened since the last newsletter, keeping myself busy, growing in my art...
Mush Hole Project was a huge success and the subsequent conference as well. We had over 600 people experience the installations.
My piece in this project can be found here:

I was invited to sing at the inauguration of the Bahá'í continental house of worship in Santiago, Chile:
And had wonderful discussions with its architect recently. You can see a fascinating talk about the potentials of beautiful architecture HERE:

Workshopping continued on some interesting projects in development with Soundstreams and Inter Arts Matrix among others. I'll write more about Glass, The Phaedra Project, and Stabat Mater, as they get nearer to production.

And I even sang in a wonderful wedding ceremony with the Gryphon Trio recently!

In the studio I sang backup on Tanya Tagaq's newest album, Retribution.


Fall is always such an exciting time. Here are a couple things you might be interested in:

Mt Space: Don't miss this vital theatre festival giving a platform to voices from all over the globe. There is a conference, a youth conference, and many wonderful productions from throughout the world addressing issues of great importance.... Details HERE

Some of the other challenging shows I'm involved with:

Join this crazy ride in Kitchener at Impact17: Entangled.

Contemporary theatre and music meets theoretical physics meets ..... the little mermaid ... an immersive and intermedial (music/sound/theatre, projection) performance ... we are all entangled - join us in acknowledging it... Featuring members of TorQ Percussion, Pam Patel, Kathryn Ladano, radio artist Andrew O'Connor, Work by Colin Labadie, video Work by Paul Cegys, script by Adam Cowart, physicists Lin-Qing Chen and Aida Ahmadzadegan among others! Produced by the Algorithmyth Collective.

We are currently in previews and are part of the Impact17 Theatre Festival which runs from Sept 26 to Oct 1.

You can learn more on their website, on FACEBOOK, and on Twitter

If you are interested in hosting this show at a festival, etc, please get in touch. We will be looking for further touring opportunities for subsequent seasons.

Soundstreams continues to offer some of the most interesting and challenging programming, and I'm honoured to be returning to the company to mount Musik für das Ende by Canadian composer Claude Vivier.  Part improv, part transcendental score, come see the first ever staging of this challenging, powerful Work. The evening will feature Alex Ivanovici as Vivier, and we will also perform Glaubst Du as part of our journey into Vivier's world and final days. You can find more details HERE.
We will be taking this production to some new music festivals in Europe next year.

Then for a bit of fun, I will become Mazo de la Roche in this ...exploration ... of the possibility that she and Stephen Leacock had an affair...more details coming soon. Like Leacock, I'm sometimes riding off in all directions...
