The Bass Piano Toronto
I am back home in my little village after an exciting Bass Piano show in Toronto. It was presented by Wavelength (they did a little interview with me here) at the Creatures Creating Gallery with a piano generously on loan from Paul Hahn & Co. The performances were captivating and I was honoured to be supported by such talent. It was pretty special to see what other performers did with my strange creation.
I will have a recording of the full show up online soon but in the mean time you can hear excerpts on Mechanical Forest Sound:
Ryan Driver (Bass Piano), Justin Haynes (Celeste), Michael Davidson (Vibes)
Marilyn Learner (Bass Piano), Nichol Rampersaud (Trumpet)
Andrew Wedman (Bass Piano), Robin Buckley (Percussion)
The show was in collaboration with visual artist Sascha Mikloweit who is from Berlin and organized the first Bass Piano show there, along with pianist John Kameel Farah. Sascha’s piece was a video installation (which you can view here) coupled with a street postering campaign (big thanks to Amos Shaw!) that referenced the work of Daniel Burren and used the coloured stripes of the medal of honour from the War on Terror.

Todd Stewart of Breeree designed and screen printed a really nice poster for the show as well.
