This unfinished suite represents the unfinished society, in which we allow ourselves to live. The holes, the cracks, the difficult to cross canyons, the incomplete communities, the broken families, and lost hope. It was left incomplete to reflect the incompleteness of equality, of the American dream, the incompleteness of life, all of the important things which we leave unfinished.
When Toronto artist, Andrew Forde conceptualized the production of ‘3’ sung’ it was to capture iconic moving images through music. This led to dialogues between cinema innovator Evert Houston (Blueprint Cinematic) and Forde. The result is an inspired evolution of live music. New story through sound. Abundant, reckless, soothing, delicate, agile; 3'Sung is the beginning of its own modern mythology.
