After 10 years of touring across Canada and Europe, Scott Hamilton (Cougars in America) joins forces with Graffiti artist AUST and the two set off on an epic adventure. By introducing a loopstation, trombone, suitcase drumkit, theremin, synthesizer and loads of other gadgets into his folk set, Scott has found a way of making his songs come alive at every concert. Each song is different every time and nobody, including him, knows exactly what will happen. Fanny (AUST) animates the scene with the shapes and figures of her imagination. Her paintings offer a visual guide to the colors and feelings of the music through her pioneering concept of "un grand concert illustré!"
