Join us on this fun-filled weekend with Dillon Anthony! Dillon will be doing an artist talk on Saturday evening and a great outdoor soundscaping course the following Sunday.
Dillon Anthony is a Canadian multi-instrumentalist, engineer, and producer, most recognized for his work on pedal steel, guitar, and keyboard for the band Kill Chicago.
Studies have taken Dillon through a 2 year Diploma in Audio Engineering at the Centre for Arts & Technology in Fredericton, a work/study internship at the Banff Centre (specializing in classical concert recordings), and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass.
In 2017, Dillon spent a large portion of the year North of 60 and in the Arctic. In this time he participated in the La Wayaka Current Artist Residency in Sørøya, Norway as well as the Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency in the Yukon, Canada. Both of these residency programs focused on creating art and drawing inspiration from the landscapes and sounds of the natural world.
As part of the Canada 150 celebrations, Dillon is in collaboration with Parks Canada in creating musical soundscapes out of environmental sounds.
It is a suggested $5 donation for the artist talk on Saturday.
