THE LONDON ONTARIO LIVE ARTS TOPICAL.

Episode 88. originally aired September 24, 2007

With apologies for the late update of the site, here is probably the most unique and potentially most exciting episode of the slipstream to date. This past weekend I trawled around the sights and sounds of the LOLA festival, with my digital camera in tow, which turned out to have a sound recorder for its damn decent mic. So as it turned out I used my status as a community radio host to get some interviews with various folks. The interviews are occasionally of subpar quality, but I did learn a lot about the process from a technical and theoretical standpoint. I also managed to record a few special LOLA performances, which crop up also (see tracklisting for details of course). And just to keep things lively, behind my inane ramblings, you can hear snatches of many live performances recorded throughout the weekend at Victoria Park. It was thrown together in a bit of a mad panic on Sunday as I was leaving in the evening for Toronto, but I think it’s still worth a listen, and hope you will to. So what are you waiting for.. check it out (on the podcast, or the link above). Also, LOLAfest is a really exciting event and one of my most favourite things of a long while, so it’s worth looking into and encouraging similar endeavours.

Read on for an assortment of videos and pictures that i managed to grab while I was hanging around…

 

The photos were taken with my Canon S3 IS… and it’s really the first time I’ve taken concert photos with a decent camera, so there was a bit of a learning curve. I wish I’d remembered about changing the ISO setting a bit earlier in the night.

 

And some brief video clips! more are available throughout youtube with some clever searching.
