Media Artist / Expanded Cinema Performance on 16mm Film


The Echo Painting project was conceived with the help of Rainbow Robert of Coastal Jazz and Blues in Vancouver. Our intent was to create a new large ensemble including some of the most active and interesting improvisors on the Vancouver scene today. It was a great gift to find ourselves in a situation in which this group, comprised of some of the older 'veterans' and some younger 'emerging' players, all highly accomplished artists and leaders of their own projects, could spend a number of days together over a period of several months. During this time we workshopped material, improvised together and finally performed a full set of music at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival 2016.

With reverence for female mythological figures, Wallgrin delves into the space between extremes of beauty and dissonance, expressed through layers of strings and exploratory human vocals. Self-produced recorded material incorporates a variety of eclectic instruments, drum machines, and field recordings, while live performances consist mainly of violin and vocal electronic manipulation. Wallgrin is now working on a debut album entitled Bird/Alien, due for release in 2018.
