SOUTHERN SOULS

'I almost worry that my voice won't carry.' We find the piano, in the central part of the room, on the far wall are painted dinosaur bones, scarred faces. she pumps the pedals and finds the keys that don't work just right. Bang bang. We wonder: what kind of wood. I again find a place to hide while she practices her scales. Like trains coming in and out of my ears, carrying choirs and coal. The fabric on her dress rustling. Bang bang. Sirens go off in the distance.

Her arms move like marionettes. We say: theatrical, a cabaret. Her bob-cut comes down to meet the end of her face, ducking down. Passerbys stop and watch for a moment, then continue, confused. What movie do you want to see?

Starting in the summer of 2009, Southern Souls began by capturing unique performances by musicians that call southern Ontario home. Seeing musicians play in the places that they live and breathe, places they themselves have chosen—in the street, in a store, in a kitchen or bedroom—is almost a homecoming for the music itself, returning it to the places in which it started.

Much like the music it’s captured, Southern Souls has branched out beyond southern Ontario, recording the performances of all sorts of souls.
