Starry Nights Navigates Halifax musically blended elements of local geography, celestial navigation and music composition/spoken word with improvised music/dance and video processing for an existential thrill ride “Navigating Halifax” followed a suggested road map score that will consisted of several stops on the way. Band members o contributed compositional fragments that animate a story or time that bumps up with the geography or culture of Halifax. We ran out of gas in the Armdale Rotary and get towed out. We ate int a “Bb Restaurant”. Tena Palmer sang an ode to Halifax. We attended a spoken word concert by Shauntay Grant, We crosed over the MacDonald Bridge , we got lost going to Halifax over the Mackay Bridge by going up Lady Hammond Road instead of Windsor St. We got lost in Dartmouth and looked to the stars to guide us.
