Remember that time we had the first-ever Booooooom film screening and twice as many people showed up as I had planned for, and I had to find more couches and chairs so hundreds of you could watch the film? If you were there then you remember the film we screened was called An Island, a collaboration between my favourite band in the world, Efterklang, and acclaimed director Vincent Moon. Well they have collaborated once again!
Earlier this year Efterklang performed a concert with the Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester (South Denmark Philharmonic), Sønderjysk Pigekor (South Denmark Girls Choir), and Hans Ek (conductor). The band invited Vincent Moon to capture the concert in one long take, in a way that only he could. The end result is magnificent. You can watch the entire film below!
Here’s a lovely interview with my friend, Hong Kong-born, Berlin-based, artist Andrea Wan as she prepares for her first solo show, in Denmark. Vancouver really misses you Andrea, me especially.
I love the part where she talks about the improvised stories she used to tell into a tape recorder when she was younger. Things like that can unlock ideas that are buried deep in your subconscious.
My mom kept an old journal of mine from grade 3, and when I found it a few years ago, it was hilarious to see how many of the stories were about someone getting lost. It didn’t matter if it was a boy, a snail, a knight. No matter what happened in the beginning and middle of my stories, somewhere near the end, whoever it was, they got lost. I guess it was my biggest fear at the time.
