Meg Baird and Mary Lattimore’s collective work—as solo artists, band members, and collaborators—could fill a small record collection. Despite this productivity, these two long-time friends have never recorded an entire album focused exclusively on their unique talents. “Ghost Forests” mysteriously, thrillingly fills that void.
Independently, Baird and Lattimore have each cultivated highly individual and idiosyncratic tools of expression. Baird’s timeless and soaring voice, guitar, and drums have underpinned pastoral and folk rock explorations as a soloist and in band settings with Espers and Heron Oblivion. Lattimore’s albums of enigmatic, spectral experimental harp sounds move and unfold like films and nature itself. The list of artists that have called upon their voices, talents, and visions to enrich their own work is expansive—a virtual pocket encyclopedia of contemporary indie and experimental musicians.
Sample over 70 wines for 18 different local and regional wineries along with hard ciders and crafted beers while listening to live music, all under one roof! Sip while enjoying 50 vendors offering food, produce, art, and unique handmade gifts. There is fun for kids too, including a bounce house, pumpkin painting, and art activities.
The kickoff to our LARP this summer was a painting residency by Rosśa Crean, a Chicago-based multimedia artist and composer whose work “stirs in you deep, undertones of humanity” (Access Contemporary).
As a synesthete, Crean creates projects that focus on neurological responses between sound, color, and emotional states.. Rosśa has garnered several awards for their visual and audio art, the most recent being the American Prize in Opera Performance for “The Great God Pan.” They have been in New York this summer developing a multimedia installation entitled “Schöne Gespielin”; the project consists of eight paintings Rosśa has created that show what they see as a synesthete when listening to the musical piece of the same name that they composed in 2018. Their most recent upcoming operatic premiere “The Harbingers,” an a cappella opera for ten voices, will take place on Halloween Night 2019 at Rosehill Cemetery in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. To catch up with what Rosśa is most recently creating, check out their website at www.rosscrean.com.
Rosśa has two paintings currently on display at Lakeside Inn: “The Rift” and “In the Garden of the Illusive Francine,” both completed at the inn on August 29, 2019. Both pieces use acrylics and large amounts of water to give them spectral nuances you see on the canvas.
