Toronto Dance Theatre & Musician Jennifer Castle - Henderson/Castle: voyager February 20 to March 1 2014

From a media release:

Dance artist Ame Henderson and musician Jennifer Castle join forces on Henderson/Castle: voyager, a new work for Toronto Dance Theatre
February 20-23 & February 26 - March 1, 2014

Toronto, ON – In her first work for Toronto Dance Theatre (TDT), Toronto-based performer and choreographer Ame Henderson collaborates with acclaimed singer/songwriter Jennifer Castle and the TDT company to explore continuous movement as a state of being. Henderson/Castle: voyager is on stage at the Winchester Street Theatre Feb 20-23 & Feb 26-Mar 1, 2014.

TDT Artistic Director Christopher House remarks “Few Toronto-based dance artists are held in such high esteem or have such an international reach as Ame Henderson. Part poet, part scientist, she draws the audience into her fascinating work through her infectious spirit of inquiry.”

Ame Henderson is known for her cross disciplinary work with Public Recordings, established in 2003, which explores and shares choreographic experimentation through artistic research and performance creation. In Henderson/Castle: voyager, Henderson proposes the question “What would happen if you never stopped moving?” The performance invites the audience to witness the unfolding of ongoing movement, and the transformation of the individuals on stage as they work.

Toronto-based singer/songwriter Jennifer Castle lends her unmistakable voice to the performance. Following the same principle of “never stopping” Castle provides the score for Henderson/Castle: voyager, a song partly composed and partly improvised, live for the duration of each performance.

Other collaborators on Henderson/Castle: voyager include lighting designer Kimberly Purtell, set and costume designer Bojana Stancic, the critical eye of New York dance artist Jeanine Durning, and Montreal-based guest dancer Marie Claire Forté. The TDT company members in collaboration include: Alana Elmer, Mairi Greig, Christopher House, Yuichiro Inoue, Pulga Muchuchoma, Jarrett Siddall, Kaitlin Standeven, and Naishi Wang.

Guitar Rock
Happy Freuds - Echo Of Sounds
Independent: May 31, 2019
Stream/Buy on Bandcamp
Stream it on Spotify

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
