Four Lullabies

On Tuesday the 14th February I closed the Faculty of Music's Student Composition Concert with four lullabies written by Tyler Versluis as a present for his soon-to-be-born baby son.

Satie Sortie

When we discovered there were 9 pianos lined up on the third floor of the Kinnear building at the Banff Centre for the Arts we thought there must be something we could do with them - then I remembered this track by Brendan Lannis that had been doing the rounds on facebook and thought, maybe we can attempt the same concept live?

This sweet, impromptu version was the result. Thankyou to the wonderful musicians who said yes, Stuart Fraser and Cate Thomason-Redus at Banff Music for making it happen and happen by lamplight, and Pedja Muzijevic for letting us all be playful.

conversing in a dream

World famous projectionist Jacques Collin was a faculty member at the Banff 'Concert as Theatre' Residency in February 2016.  Whilst flautist Heather Beaty and I were preparing for our performance of 'I conversed with you in a dream' by Vancouver based composer Jocelyn Morlock, Jacques took video of us to create a literal dream conversation across three panels especially for our Rolston Hall performance on the 26th February.
