The Olm

Two new mothers, Jenna Turner (violin) and Caitlin Richards (viola), respond to their babies and create a lullaby in two parts, improvised over a collage of their daughters’ voices. In Gwendolyn Suite, a breast pump echoes, and violin, viola and other sounds soothe the harsh cries of a newborn overwhelmed by the world out of utero. Annalisa Suite begins in pregnancy where a mother sings to connect with her baby, then in labour through fetal distress.

The process of making is not a singular act of influence or confluence. The creative process demands a confluence of one’s own history, biases, abilities and even limitations with the influences of politics, economics, social constructs and the physical environment.

By embracing both influence and confluence, we form a new and original path. Attend the free showcase opening reception at Alberta Branded on January 24 at 6 p.m.
