Elusive Landscape: Legion Park
July 17, 2010
This was a midsummer night of energetic renewal, with many people in attendance and a lot of folks relaxing outdoors with their families. Ricardo's soundscape for Legion Park had a lot of different chapters to it, drawing on the diversity of the neighborhood. Among the highlights of the many audio surprises was a whistle blowing that kept everybody on their toes. The park had a bit more ambient light than we had hoped for and was certainly less spooky than Arch Creek, but the images in the tree canopy were... well, definitely elusive.
Thank you to all who came out to support the project. A special thanks to Park Manager, Coach Kim Sands and the staff at Legion Memorial Park.
Many people asked if they can see the films on screens at some point, and the answer is yes. At the culminating exhibition at Diaspora Vibe Gallery, November 18-25, we will be screening the films on screens and in video monitors, and exhibiting the 16mm filmstrips in light-boxes.
As always, thank you to my amazing crew: Alejandro Contreras, Loriel Beltrán, Raúl Garcia, Alain Almeida from TCB Transfer. We will be flickering once again on August 14 at Sewell Park, on 17th Avenue and NW South River Drive, a much darker and more dense location, which will make for more contrast and visibility.
