Mary Cecil, Victoria Callihoo (Nee Belcourt) and Eleanor (Helene) Thomas Garneau composed by Postcommodity and Alex Waterman. In Memoriam... Mary Cecil, Victoria Callihoo (Nee Belcourt) and Eleanor (Helene) Thomas Garneau adds a new score and production by Postcommodity and Alex Waterman to a suite of four early scores by the American composer Robert Ashley. The fifth score honours the lives of Mary Cecil, Victoria Callihoo (Nee Belcourt) and Eleanor (Helene) Thomas Garneau, three Indigenous women from territory at the turn of the Century as it became the province of Alberta. This significant addition continues Ashley's project investigating the connections between musical forms and constructs of historicization, opening a conversation regarding whom and how we memorialize individuals and inscribe their legacies.
