THIS, AND THE OTHER SPACE

Jamie Drouin | Lance Austin Olsen

Examining the fracturing of memory and the creation of multiple realities, or spaces, as details obscure and the remnants eventually form their own parallel narratives.

THE FRENCH DROP

Jamie Drouin | Lance Austin Olsen

The Hieronymus Bosch painting known as The Conjurer (c.1475–1505) has held a constant position in the back of my consciousness for several weeks – being emblematic of the dangerous political world we find ourselves in. It represents the ease, and apparent willingness, of people to repeatedly fall for the simple distraction techniques of the travelling charlatan, including the oldest slight-of-hand illusion of them all: Le Tourniquet, or The French Drop.

FUSIFORM

Jamie Drouin

Eight compositions for Buchla synthesizer and magnetic tape, in which variable forms are revealed through the speeding up, and slowing down of recorded layers. FUSIFORM also functions as the second half of my 2018 album DRIFT.
