Arts Matter Series: Skookum Sound


Skookum Sound, the final installation of the 2012-2013 school year’s Arts Matter lineup, had its presentation on Friday, April 15th.

The hour-long show was put on by a local Aboriginal band who are trying to make their mark on the musical world by being a live electronic group.

The audience enjoyed several short films that were cinematographic clips of things such as salmon, wolves, and black and white cartoons with flashing lights and heat maps edited onto the images.

Skookum Sound played their electronic instruments while one of the members sang to the beat. The lights in the theatre were off and the show gave the audience the feeling of being in a nightclub.

Before Skookum Sound’s performance, the audience was delighted to see Sabra, last year’s dance valedictorian, preform a speech followed by an original dance. In addition, Langley Fine Arts Aboriginal drummers played two songs, and one of the performers, Cedar Meneghello, read a poem she had written about her Aboriginal background.

All in all it was another successful performance, and a good end to this year’s Arts Matter performances. We are excited to see what next year will bring!
