Event description

Description

For over 30 years Portland, Maine-based sound artist Dianne Ballon has been dreaming about walking into a second-hand shop and searching for musical instruments, mostly violins. This led to creating “Musical Instrument Dreams,” an introspective collage that mixes the actual dreams with fragments of interviews and sound from violin makers, musical instrument shops, and string players.

The piece was created for radio, and as a sound installation for a gallery. The installation includes the visuals of the second hand-shop that she “sees in her dreams”. She has collected over thirty musical instruments for the installation.
