Nina Sings.

Here's just a quick update and sample on my sight + sound project. Recently learned how to make basic animations, which I will begin applying to these project and an example of which is in the clip below.

Haven't bought this software rebuilding this project every time is both a blessing and a curse. But it's in the cards, so I will certainly have the power within my hands soon enough!



Last week NXNE took over the clubs and bars of Toronto. I was lucky enough to share the stage with Megan Bonnell at the Rivioli, as part of the Nevado Records showcase. Also on the bill were Loom, the Meligrove Band, Paint Movement & Yukon Blonde (all signed to the same label).

Megan and I also took to the part for the Live in Bellwoods series, organized by good friends Humble Empire and Young Lions.

We played some originals on guitar and one cover originally performed by John Lee Moore & 12 Mississippi Convicts, recorded by Alan Lomax.

Sight + Sound.

[youtube]Here's a sample of a visualization project I'm working on. Based on themes of 'time, space and place' it features live video, visual effects based on sound input and original music.


Train Songs

Recently took a trip north to my hometown.The train is a timeless means of travel. Thought I'd capture some of the journey for nostalgia.


A Heliconian Sound

[youtube]Recently I watched the Toy Piano Orchestra's showcase of original compositions, as performed by the percussive TorQ quartet. It was interesting night of dynamic, inventive performance showcasing some of Toronto's most talented rhythm makers.


Played the Supermarket venue in Toronto's Kensington village last night. Supporting Megan on drums, we opened the night for Mandippal and The Love Machine (from Ottawa).The show was captured by three cameras set up by the sound tech (Johnny - a true sound tech with the stereotypically kooky character I've come to accept from most live sound engineers).

The show was streamed online and my Mom was able to tune in up north, so that was great that family could connect despite the geography between us. It's got me thinking about future shows and expanding reach. If the iPhone does it (which is safe to assume it does), then drumovision may be coming soon to a FB event page near you.
