parade is a piece composed of found memories. It is inspired by two main sources: an 8mm film of a parade from my Grandmother’s attic, and some recent recordings of my Grandfather made during a visit to his now non-existing hometown of Blakeburn, BC. For me, the piece explores the often blurred manner in which memories may be collected and handed down from generation to generation.
