A&B collective is the collaborative work between Jessica Aylsworth and Jon Booth.
Jon Booth is a music composer extraordinaire! I’m amazed at the range of musical works he creates; from piano rags to more abstract sound compositions created from reworked pre-recorded sounds.
We first collaborated on the Memory Forest installation, for Nuit Blanche Ottawa 2012, when I asked him to compose a sound piece to accompany the installation. Through this process we found that we worked very well together. Although our mediums differed, we often explored or worked with similar concepts (i.e. memory). Our ideas meshed well, and as we worked together, more collaborative ideas were born. So hopefully this is the start of a fun collaborative adventure and the creation of many more projects to come.
