For many years I’ve recorded music for my films and sometimes for live performance projects, beginning with film performances at The Funnel. For a history of The Funnel collective and its artists, see Mike Hoolboom’s research project, which includes my interview and many others: http://mikehoolboom.com/?p=12552
Here is a sample collection of recordings: https://soundcloud.com/edie-steiner produced in collaboration with Canadian artists Chip Yarwood, Malcolm Lewis, Michael Phillip Wojewoda, and Australian composers Colin Offord and Daniel Rojas. Among my published works is the text for Colin Offord’s Bold New Strategies Suite (EMI International, 1999). Here is Colin in concert, performing Part 1, “I See A Journey”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoZvrbGiIKo
Here is another book review I’ve written for The Goose – a publication by the Association for the Study of Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada (ALECC). The text is Adrian J. Ivakhiv’s “Ecologies of the Moving Image: Cinema, Affect, Nature.” For serious film studies or ecological cinema studies readers, this book is an amazing resource.
