Mixed media installation & performance: Multiple performers, upright piano, cassette tape, portable cassette tape player
HRM Open Projects, Point Pleasant Park (Halifax NS)
Parchetypes was a performance installation that took place in Halifax's Point Pleasant Park. The work interpretatively portrayed two mythical and obscure musical figures, the Anonymous Bagpiper & the Gatekeeper, synonymous with the contemporary culture of the park. An upright piano was left in the woods of the park to depict the Anonymous Bagpiper and piano performances were held throughout August 2011. A cassette tape of the piano performance recordings was made and played back on a portable cassette player at the entrance of the park by the Gatekeeper throughout September 2011.
Performers: Sageev Oore (piano), Tim Crofts (piano), Ronnie Cooper (Gatekeeper)
