I will miss the extremely fun after party because I will be in New York city.
So you have to come to my show if you want to see me before I go.
A new venue, a new collaboration and much excitement is planned for August 12th – 8:00pm – 10:00pm.
You are invited to join Paul Plimley, Tommy Babin, Phil Emerson, Victoria Gibson, T Crane and guests at the Auditorium of the Jules Verne School, located at 5445 Baillie Street (between Oak and Cambie off 41st Ave), Vancouver, BC.
COLLABORATIONS will usher in a series of projects directed by
…PAUL PLIMLEY with musicians TOMMY BABIN, VICTORIA GIBSON and PHIL EMERSON. Guests include Poet T Crane.
“An improvisational feast sure to stimulate on a molecular level!” posted T Crane in his facebook event invitation.
Other poets will also be appearing to interact with the real-time improvisation of the musical ensemble.
COLLABORATIONS is a part of L’ÉTHÉÂTRE, a summer festival that celebrates cultural multidisciplinary experience.
L’ÉTHÉÂTRE runs from the 5th of July until the 15th of August, featuring films, live performances and visual art produced by Visions Ouest Productions.
Here are some photos of Paul, Tommy and Phil taken from their performance as part of the Olympic Cultural Events on Granville Island.
Now I have chosen to go with Photoshelter to host some of my galleries, I will be uploading more events that I have photographed. Now I have completed the Canadian League of Composers event that occurred at the Western Front back in January. See my progress on my Photoshelter homepage here.
Soon I will have other galleries hosted. I realized after I started this account that I could easily host this level of photo storage and slideshow view on my own site. So here is a slide show of the Canadian Composers I photographed in January. If you are pictured and you would like a copy, please contact me. You are welcome to copy the image off the site but please credit me if you use it professionally. Most of these photos are untouched and would benefit from an application of graphic design skills. I am willing to trade or accept an honourarium for the work.
I attended several events during the Vancouver 2010 Cultrual Olympiad and my friend Paul played with Phil Emerson and Tommy Babin in the trio, “String Stories”. The light was very tricky and I am still getting used to my new 50mm 1.8 lens. My Nikon D50 did the best it could in my hands and this is the result. I learned a lot from taking these photos, but they still preserve some great moments.
One of the other really cool shows was Umalali, a group I had connected with at the 2009 Folk Music Festival. I have yet to obtain permission to post images from this concert, but here are the pictorial examples of Olympic Security – Belize style.
Have to get back to music now.
