Christopher JJ Reimer Memorial Show Recaps!

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.”

 Paisley, it was. THANK YOU.

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:

Christopher John Joseph Reimer Fund Update

Hello and thanks to all who’ve read, written and sent support, condolences and love. It has been much appreciated by those of us on the inside of this great loss.

My mother’s not yet been able to read this blog, but I know that when the time comes she will be as honoured and comforted as I have been by all of your kind thoughts towards us and our boy.

I wanted to give a quick update on the situation with the preliminarily-named C.J.J. Reimer Scholarship Fund:

The team has had a few meetings, and we’re quite excited about our ideas, however, we still need to deal with some legalities, firm up our intended partnerships and obtain official not-for-profit status.

As soon as the Fund is ready to officially launch, we will announce it both on this blog and in media releases.

In the meantime, if any of you would like to contribute to the fund, you may send cheques directly to my father C/o the following:

Tim Reimer
11 Woodhaven Crescent, S.W.
Calgary, AB T2W 5S3

Funds may be earmarked for either the production of Chris’ unpublished music or for the scholarship. (Please just send a note indicating your preference). A separate bank account has been set up to hold the funds raised so far until we’re ready to transfer them into the official fund account.

Please backchannel me if you have any further questions: nikki(dot)reimer(at)gmail(dot)com

Sincerely and humbly,

Nikki Reimer on behalf of Team Reimer!

(Nikki Reimer, Tim Reimer, Jo Reimer, Rena Kozak and Marc Rimmer)
