Naomi McCarroll-Butler/Olivia Shortt/Lauren Falls - Is this a tomb or am I in love? [excerpt]

It's generally acknowledged that the key to a successful sequel is in making things bigger and more explosive while staying true whatever it was that made the original feel special and unique. The second annual Women From Space Festival applied that maxim to great effect, cosmically expanding in all directions while nourishing its core ideal of creating Space for a diverse range of women-centred creative expressions. This set was one manifestation of the increased ambition of primary organizers Bea Labikova and Kayla Milmine, assembling this trio and commissioning a pair of compositions for them to perform. One piece was from ensemble member Naomi McCarroll-Butler, but there was also this new work from Lieke Van Der Voort, which included her electronics adding drones and disembodied voices.
