12:00pm

Emi Honda and Jordan McKenzie

Saturday and Sunday exhibition hours: 12pm to 5pm
Performance: Saturday, 2pm
Centre A, 229 East Georgia Street
Post Festival hours: Tuesdays - Saturdays until September 13, 11am-6pm

Performance and gallery entrance: Free

Emi Honda and Jordan McKenzie present ‘Music Temple’ at the 38th Annual Powell Street Festival. Seasoned collaborators in sculptural installation and music, Honda and McKenzie employ prepared acoustic instruments, found percussion elements, and often mythological and pantheistic themes delivered in a mixture of English and Japanese. ‘Music Temple’ is inspired by natural and human-altered landscapes and the flora and detritus that exist in each. Guided departure from the Festival Info Booth will leave at 1:30pm to walk to Centre A for the 2pm performance on Saturday August 2nd.

Honda and McKenzie began Elfin Saddle after migrating from Canada’s lush west coast to Montreal, transporting their nature-inspired, ethnically ambiguous folk creations to the urban environs of the east. Already seasoned collaborators in sculptural installation and music, Elfin Saddle began as a more contained outlet for these multi-disciplinary activities, using prepared acoustic instruments, found percussion elements, and often mythological and pantheistic themes delivered in a mixture of English and Japanese. Recently incorporating video projection and audio installation elements into their live performances, the resulting ‘Music Temple’ presents a pseudo-narrative culmination of all of the above.
