GARDEN_NIGHT
Jamie Drouin & Lance Austin Olsen
catalogue IN030

This re-mastered Drouin & Olsen recording from 2003 is an intriguing document for two main reasons:

First, as an example of the initial Infrequency experimental music concerts we presented at the Martin Batchelor Gallery in Victoria, BC Canada – even though our audience often consisted of one person, in this case, local artist Jeffrey Allport.

Second, it is a reminder to Lance and myself that, no matter how far we feel our work has shifted over the intervening years, this early recording, made in a time of our relative naïveté (having only recently transitioned from visual artists to sound in 2000), and secluded from the outside sound art world, already contains a remarkable affinity to our current sensibilities.

In these regards, GARDEN_NIGHT becomes a two-way mirror – allowing us to simultaneously look back, forward, and through our oeuvre. We hope you enjoy the process as well.
