TO HOLD A BIRD IN YOUR HANDS, by Jake Parker Scott
Jake Parker Scott is a Canadian improviser/composer/artist. He enjoys watching birds fly, bad tattoos and swimming in cold lakes. He once swam for 100 days straight. Before moving to California to study at Mills College, he lived in West Bengal studying North Indian Raga Music. At Mills, he spent his second year in a workshop with Daniel Schmidt, building a boat in the form of nine aluminum gongs. For the last two years he has been obsessed with 16mm film projections and 16mm collages have become an integral part of his composition practice.
