Canadian pianist Eve Egoyan’s husband, David Rokeby, is one of Canada’s most innovative video artists. The two have recently collaborated on an extraordinary project which ArtSpring is privileged to present.
Over the course of a year, David recorded 750,000 images of Montreal cityscapes, the camera moving slowly day by day. From these images he has edited a work called Machine for Taking Time, a meditation on the nature of time. This is accompanied by Eve’s performance of an equally contemplative work for solo piano, Simple Lines of Enquiry, composed by the late Ann Southam. This performance will launch you beyond the boundaries of the ordinary through an hour-long journey into the heart of stillness and movement and time.
If you attend Eve’s Friday, February 21 recital, we invite you to Machine for Taking Time/Simple Lines of Enquiry for free. Just bring along your ticket stub from the recital.
