I just googled “songs about Stephen Harper” and what came up in the majority of posts was his song during his campaign trail (“Better Now” by Collective Soul). So what I’m thinking is this: I will google the subject, person, object, place, location in each photo and database what song references come up according to that photo’s referent.
How cool would it be if the figure skaters pictured performed to a Collective Soul song? It’s a longshot…but who knows what kindof musical connections can be made. I want to make a musical archive!!!!!! Totally. This is the idea I’m going after. I know, right now, it’s just a cool idea. I don’t know what it says about archives, databases and the experience of art…well, I do. I just can’t articulate it yet.
More to come!
