Dog Trail by Jared Tailfeathers
Over the last three years I have embarked on a research journey, experiencing traditional methods of making and documenting evidence that lies upon the land; pictographs, petroglyphs, rock art and tools. Through this, I created one-of-a-kind musical instruments that are influenced by methods of making and recording narrative music that was inspired by the land I visited for the project. It was important to end the process by having a special showing for the music/soundscape, but because of COVID I was unable to perform at a public venue. This opportunity is perfect to showcase a specific version of this music/soundscape that will only be displayed for this narrative project, quite different from the music I will release in a year’s time. This project was originally supported through the OPIP initiative by CADA.
