What do you get when you put two artists in a canoe? On a recent camping trip to Algonquin Park, sound artist David Sanchez de Mingo and I passed hours on the water recording the amplification of our aluminum canoe through two contact microphones. Canoe Lake, where this recording was made, was the site of the mysterious death of one Canada’s most famed artists,Tom Thomson.
