This performance combines Simple Lines of Enquiry, composed by Ann Southam for Eve Egoyan and the video work Machine for Taking Time by David Rokeby. The music and video are not explicitly synchronized but move through time in such compatible ways that they enliven and accent each other. Eve Egoyan’s recording of Simple Lines of Enquiry was chosen by Alex Ross of The New Yorker Magazine as one of his 10 exceptional recordings for 2009. Machine for Taking Time draws from a database of 750,000 images of Montréal captured over the period of a year. It stitches together a slow and seamless pan across the city in which movement is constant, but time is variable and fluid.
