The Kindling Fund will support new and experimental sound-based projects at the Cannery in South Penobscot. In addition to its 2017 programming, the Cannery will produce a festival and an exhibition that feature multiple concerts and visual artworks. The Sound Improv Festival is a two-day, cross-disciplinary meeting of musicians, video artists and dancers who work with improvisation. Sound Installation Month at the Cannery showcases multiple exhibitions by sound artists, each in its own gallery or environment. This project is spearheaded by Leslie Ross in collaboration with Gustavo Aguilar, Gaelyn Aguilar, Steve Norton and Nate Aldrich.
