Funding Received

During the Spring of 2018 I will take on a project to study the reeds of Wilhelm Knochenhauer and Carl Mechler with James R. McKay. McKay is the author of The Bassoon Reed Manual: Lou Skinner’s Theories and Techniques and has a collection of original Knochenhauer and Mechler reeds.

Thanks to support from The Canada Council for The Arts, I will be able to spend a number of days working closely with McKay in Canada during the months of May and June. The overall goal of the project is to measure and experiment in order to develop a process to create replicas usable for bassoons of the late 19th century. With any luck, there will be a process or two which may inspire a new design for baroque and classical instruments. 


We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country. 
Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.

  2. 4 Super-Simple Tricks I used During my Roof Repair in Toronto
    If you own a building, you can attest that the roof is one of the most significant investments. In fact, one would gladly prefer to fix some damages on other parts of the building than embarking on a roof repair. Nevertheless, when the need for it calls, you have to do it.
    Some time ago, I got into some roofing issues. Of course, you wouldn’t want to experience it because it often comes with trauma. It was a cold evening when we heard a loud hit on our roof. Dang! We wondered what it could be. While I suggested it might be some animals jumping on the top, she called my mind to the tree close to our building. Perhaps, one of its weak branches has hit our roof. Suddenly, we stopped talking about it and slept off. https://bestroofingtoronto.ca/news/4-simple-tricks-for-roof-repair-in-toronto/
