Dreaming at Land's End

Dreaming at Land's End

An experimental video series accompanied by a creative essay by interdisciplinary artist Dawn Matheson, launched on the University of Guelph's International Institute for Improvisation's online journal: "Critical Studies in Improvisation/Études critique en improvisation"  

The seven-video compilation is accompanied by a creative text by Matheson exploring her daytime and dreamtime video residency at the “Musical Improvisation at Land’s End / Coin-du-Banc en folie” camp on the Gaspécoast, Quebec, in 2018.

Matheson recorded the dreams dreamt by participating musicians while at camp, then had the musicians improvise a live soundtrack to accompany the dream narrative while she provided the visuals.

No portrait of a creative residency collaborating with musical improvisers felt complete without a deep exploration into the most intimate, untamed, and magical of states —dreamtime.
