Description

Published on the occasion of Jason De Haan and Miruna Dragan’s September 2011 exhibition at the Khyber in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Daniel Bosch is a wildfire lookout in Northern Alberta, Canada. Every day, from April to October, he looks out upon the treetops from the eight by eight foot cabin of the tallest tower in the province. Dan is also a self-taught musician. While living in the woods, he crafted a cello from a solid block of spruce and then taught himself to play it. Because the cello was too big to fit in the cage of the tower’s one hundred and twenty vertical steps, Dan made a body-less version, allowing him to practice during his many hours inside the tower’s cabin. By wedging the practice cello between the edge of a small worktable and the cabin’s fiberglass octagonal cupola, Dan discovered that he could more than compensate for the instrument’s lack of a body. The cabin itself becomes the resonant chamber and the tower becomes the instrument within which the cellist plays.
