Canada: Electric Eclectics
Idiot Glee at Electric Eclectics festival on Funny Farm, Meaford
We have been to the Electric Eclectics sound art festival on Funny Farm in Meaford on Georgian Bay for the weekend. It has been on since 2006 and is initiated and organized by Gordon Monahan and Laura Kikauka who are friends of my Ottawa friends and hosts Susan Ross and Robert Tombs. It is hard to describe the multiple impressions – in short: it has been amazing, a lot of fun and absolutely worth the 2 times 8 hour drive! Check http://c3r.ca/electriceclectics5/ for more details.
