Event Notes

× Through enmeshing musical and visual art on stage, the curatorial aim is to have a ‘relational tension’ created, one that offers a unique interpretation based on the blending of art mediums. In colour theory - as used by the Pointillists in the 1880’s for example - two distinct pure colours placed side by side can create the image of a third colour. The eye ‘blends’ the colours. The technique relies on the ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to blend the colour spots into a fuller range of tones.

We are attempting a conceptual ‘blending' on-stage of music and visual art, aiming to deepen our understanding of what is possible in performance. The viewer, in this case the audience, will blend the mediums.

The work is experimental and undefined as expressed within outcomes. The structure of the performances (5 in total) is intentionally set up to not have predictable results, nor to overly pre-plan or compose the two parallel forms as presented.

Part 2 features Elise Boulanger & Andrea Routley

Elise Boulanger

Elise Boulanger is a sweet darkness wrapped in orchestral instrumentation. Hailing from Nanaimo, Canada, this Indie-Folk artist completely captivates audiences with her haunting avalanche of a voice.Deemed as "definitely one to watch" by the Times Colonist, Boulanger is influenced by nature and is sonically reminiscent of Kate Bush. In 2022 Boulanger released EP ‘The Blooming.’ She is played on national community/college radio, CBC and has made TV appearances on CKPG’s Today Show. Performing for over 15 years, she has toured Western Canada, opened for Carmanah, played the JUNO celebrations, Arts Wells, Robson Valley, Woodstove and The Port Theatre.
