Emily! Don't Do That!

BY EMILY PEASGOOD
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 06, 2018

"I use sound to express things that cause me frustration and joy. I find it cathartic and I find it so much fun. It makes frustrating things tolerable and fun things magical. For me, sound captures experience, truth, and memory in a way that no other sense can."

Despite the seemingly obstructive title, Emily Peasgood shows she is a risk-taking creative who throws caution to the wind (sometimes literally), experimenting with sound and social encounters, her work is original, thought-provoking and uplifting.

BY J A GINSBURG
@ VOL 48 ON DEC 12, 2018

She admires those who seem to know exactly what they want to do with their lives, but is more than content to flit about with a glorious lack of discipline across an array of broad interests.

Music is filled with metaphors we can use to make sense of our lives: pain, rage, grief, humility, gratitude, joy, peace.. They're all there, and when we listen closely to our bodies, our lives, and our song, we can make sense of what has happened to us, and where we choose to go from there.

We will therefore be on "sleep" mode for the next two weeks, and won't be doing our regular daily posts during this time. We will still have two new presentations going up on the site each and every day, which we'll share on the blog as well, but for details on the PKNs happening during this 2-week period, please have a look at our calendar page. Calendar Tonight, Friday (August 3), you can catch the following three events: PKN Panjim Vol. 3, PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 7, and PKN Hakata Vol. 7. Then on Sunday, we have PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5 and PKN Beijing Vol. 21, and Monday has PKN Pittsboro Vol. 11.
