Mad love and thanks to all the peeps who came out to see our boy’s show at Sled Island last week. (Two weeks ago, I guess. They say you lose time in grief. It’s true. It goes somewhere).
Also, I don’t know that I properly thanked the Sled Island Festival, and Paisley Sim in particular, for so generously making possible this event. From FFWD:
For Sim, however, one exhibition stands out from the rest: the Reimer show at MOCA. “Marc Rimmer curated it and Marc and Chris were best friends for many, many years,” she says. “It’s a collection of photographs of him by many people in his life and then we’re playing many of his unreleased, ambient scores — they’re all so textured.”
The show features a silent auction to raise funds for a foundation in Reimer’s name.
“More than anything, I feel humbled to be able to present it. I loved Chris and I hope that the show is well-received by his family more than anything else.”
CBC Calgary’s The Homestretch spoke to Marc in advance of the show.
And BeatRoute interviewed Rena about Gold.
Thanks to DivinerOne/Kathleen Moors for this lovely ambient video:
Kath also took a number of photos that she said made it look like Chris was interacting with me. (Below, with more photos from the show).
Here’s a docu-vid I made of the event from footage taken by our aunt Sam. I apologize for the number of times I say Um.
We are working out the legalities of starting a charitable society, and hope to release official details on this site very soon.
