LINDA CLAVE’S paintings are done during live performances or individual sessions. “My interest is dual creativity sparking new rhythms and tempos to my painting style. Also the sounds of John Voight, Laurence Cook, Loe Lavosi, Stephanie Woods, and Jaimee Joroff. The ambience of the time painted, seasons or a temperature or a cosmic shift, have influenced what is in the paint.” lindaclavearts.com

Damon Smith’s explorations into the sonic palette of the double bass have resulted in a personal, flexible improvisational language based in the American jazz avant-garde movement and European non-idiomatic free improvisation. Visual art, film and dance heavily influence his music, as evidenced by his CAMH performance of Ben Patterson’s Variations for Double Bass, collaborations with director Werner Herzog on soundtracks for Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World, and an early performance with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. https://www.balancepointacoustics.com/damon-smith/
