Sunheart and I

The opening night of the Antimatter Film Festival was incredible!!!

J Maclachlan gathered up many musicians from Victoria BC to be a part of this Disney music night happening at the Openspace Gallery, named "Small World." I was excited to be a part of it because Disney movies had a huge presence and impact on my childhood, and so it was a huge treat to be able to perform my chosen 3 songs.

I had met Alex Cooper during the summer when we both signed up to do the Fifty fifty Art Collective's Annual "Rock Lottery". I was instantly pleased to meet him, 1. because he seemed super nice, and 2. because he was a super-hero of synths, drum machines, samplers, loopers, delays, etc etc awesome etc.

I contacted Alex aka Sunheart shortly after being asked by J to do "Small World", and Alex agreed to collaborate with me for this project. It was great to work with him, the process was very easy and enjoyable.

We ended up playing:

1. "Hi Ho, Hi Ho" from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" -- which I love because I feel it has a wonderful Blackforest/Germany feel to the whole movie. I love Elves, Gnomes, Dwarves, and the music is very 'german beerhall dance party'.

2. "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes" from "Cinderella" -- is actually an accordion standard, it's wonderful to play on the accordion, and really shines nicely. Plus, the song is just so charming and lovely.

3. "We Are Siamese" from "Lady and the Tramp" -- I put down my accordion for this one, and played the cymbal and tamborine. Meowing, singing and screaming, hitting myself with a tamborine, and smashing the shit out of the cymbal, I am now left with huge bruises on my leg from whacking myself with that tamborine. Who knew this song was so violent?

We had a fantastic time performing together and plan to continue this accordion/electronic music collaboration. It has been a goal and dream to have an electronic music project.

I grew up listening to Depeche Mode, New Order, Kraftwerk, The Pet Shop Boys, Erasure and Yaz, along with other genres like Lawrence Welk, ABBA, and Bjork...you get the idea. With these influences I have been pining after a project where making the music I love dancing to could be a reality. Having it incorporate my accordion is pure bliss!!

SMALL WORLD



If you've lived in Victoria long enough...then I already know you, your Mom went to highschool with my Dad, your sister was in my dance class, my best friend knows your yoga instructor, and we've probably already dated.

I am performing this Friday night at the Openspace Gallery at the "Small World" show, which is part of the upcoming "Antimatter Film Festival" Openspace is putting on.

I'll be playing all Disney songs, with my friend Alex Cooper aka Sunheart - who does amazing things with samplers, mixers, pedals, drum machines, and synths. I'm very excited!



The Openspace Gallery is located at 510 Fort Street, Victoria BC. Doors at 9pm.

OKTOBERFEST IS HERE AGAIN!

Tonight is the first night of the Oktoberfest events happening at the Victoria Edelweiss Club, and I am looking forward to it very much! I've been going for years now, and was brought up in a German family, so to be around a banquet hall full of German's is a great night for me :)

This year I joined the Victoria Edelweiss Dance Group, somewhat at the last minute, so I only know one of the dances that will be performed tonight, as well I'll play my accordion along to some of the pre-recorded tracks used for the dance group. This German Club is also home to the Victoria Accordion Club, FYI -- important trivia HELLO!?

I was first wanting to wear my lederhosen in the dance group, I usually wear lederhosen for cabaret shows and to Oktoberfests in past years, but this year I get to wear such a pretty German dirndl = women's dress. I feel very pretty in it, and it has me very excited :)

It really is a guaranteed GOOD TIME! The best German food you can find in town, lots of beer, traditional decor, fun live music, everyone up and dancing -- chicken dance anyone? Prosit!!



Oktoberfest at the Victoria Edelweiss Club is happening tonight, Oct 24th, 30th and 31st as well.

For more information visit the Victoria Edelweiss Club's Website, and to order tickets call Mike or Cara at 250-477-7665, or email victoriaoktoberfest@shaw.ca
