February 2007 : Avatar, Quebec City.
This Lab is a residency with artists’ collective AVATAR, Quebec City, where Kaffe is making a new piece for the new Sonic Bed which we have been remotely collaborating to build since October 2006.
It’s stunning to see the work at last, especially as this is the first localized Bed whose makers have really taken the concept on board ; a truly Quebecois Bed.
and the -24C conditions are a new but inspiring experience for ice music compositions where,
1. new compositional rules are being developed and
2. composition is the sole focus of two weeks work, NO technical distractions, and a completely isolated making retreat is much appreciated. Many thanks for AVATAR support.
