Middle Passage Soundways

MMiddle Passage: Birthday Soundways in an Abandoned Warehouse

On New Years, my friend Jamie Thompson of the Urban Flute Project, scouted an abandoned warehouse (Cadet Cleaners) with a group of urban explorers near St. Claire and Old Weston Road in Toronto, ON. Sometime thereafter, we decided to occupy the space on my birthday, so we brought one small generator, not knowing how long it would keep a charge, two mains, a powered mixer, mixing console, and a handful of lights, along with two mics, placed 10 and 80 feet apart from the soundsource. Tracks were especially arranged for this evening, and were intended to enhance the experience of walking through the space. We had to climb two fences and walk one flight of stairs to reach an appropriate space.
