New Canadiana :: Goose Lake – Wakewind
From the interlocking hinterlands of David Ferris:
One could be forgiven in thinking the scene revolving around Grande Prairie
is the result of some kind of immaculate conception. The most salient feature of the region is transience, and the terminal moraine left in the wake of musicians coming and going is being documented
like the points of some constellation half-familiar to anybody who grew up in a remote city; an abstract map
in search of territory. Goose Lake, Alberta — located near the intersection of Highway 658 and Township Road 614B — stares up into this solar apex, with guitars and voices and votive offerings to the remote.
