Recorded at Gladstone Hotel's Second Floor Gallery Space (MFS Listening Station Tape Salon), January 6, 2018.Allison Cameron - [excerpt]
As a part of the Listening Station I assembled as part of Long Winter's "Toronto's Musical Undergrounds" Myseum exhibition, I put together a little afternoon gathering for people to listen to (and leave with!) some tapes. There was also a short performance from Allison Cameron, who often mixes in found sounds from cassettes in her improvised sets. For some bonus dramatic flair, the performance took place behind an illuminated gauzey curtain, left over from another of the event's installations, adding that mysterious je ne sais quois to the proceedings.
