Angela Goh spent a week at QL2 earlier this month with a Supported Grant of Space. This is what happened.
In the QL2 studio this week,
I got drenched with litres of teenage sweat (and it’s counterpart, “lynx”),
My ears rang with the sound of teenage laughter (it seems to be somewhat louder than other types), the sound of bass lines, and the roar of Ruth’s voice,
I was overcrowded with countless kids coming and going and coming back as artists,
I got insomnia from generations of dreams,
I got high on unconditional love,
I got enveloped in the unfolding of lots of special people,
My head got swamped with years worth of unanswered questions,
My eyes were blinded with years worth of light bulb moments,
I drowned in the accumulation of “Soft Landing” tears,
I teetered on the earthquake caused by insurmountable falls, collisions and crashes,
I was swarmed with plagues of stomach butterflies,
I was elevated by lively ghosts.
And….. I worked on my new solo, Out There Deep.
It was a big week.
