ELIZA FERNAND QUILT STORIES: 6:30 pm (25 minute set)
Last year, Eliza Fernand drove across the country with her quilted tent, collecting stories and anecdotes about quilts in twenty-five cities and towns; from Washington, to Massachusetts, to Texas, and back to California. After recording over 100 MP3's of personal stories, she is deconstructing the audio and piecing the collected words into song lyrics. The result, for now, is a performance with video and song. In collaboration with musician Robin MacMillan in New York, the sound piece including five songs and remixed field recordings has been recently released by AOT Imprint in Minneapolis.
