January 11th, 2024. Happy New Year all, Thank you so much for your time over the years to listen to my music. Sick lately, plus the new senior residence i Moved into in July, have decided not to renew my lease, so filed a human rights complaint against them and moving end of January. As my music is free here du to the tragic reality the first people experience in society, that written, does not mean I do not appreciate any patron support. if one wants to help this senior elder artist with life, my Interact email transfer address is donaldmorin@link. every little bit helps. God bless you all Just to let all you wonderful people know; River City Chamber Orchestra wants to perform some of my compositions, so I sent complete assimilation and others.

My granddaughter Aeliana is now 8 and a gifted child. I wrote a score for her, plus I refurnished a 1997 S-VHS edit of NDNs and DOGs multi media play of 1991, 1992, & 1994 LIVE performances for Late Jimy Sidlar's grandson, who turned 15th, and an emerging artist of which I uploaded the stream to my Youtube channel YouTube here. The audio is here as well , so thank you for listening to the work, the Video Stream (4K) is here Enjoy. I also created NDNs & DOGs shorts from the songs adding new instruments to the live performances as an experiment. . As I intended for this work to be an allegory to contact, I was please to hear the late Grace Mirehouse of the Native Education Centre, tell me she saw the multi media work as an allegory for contact (1492 and after). Genisis of the work started in 1989 , when the former director of The International Pitt Gallery asked me to do a performance event addressing native concerns. I was working with Gitxsan playwright and poet the late Neil Benson in video work in 1986. He allowed me to study his poems and play, and I Studied my works to look at language, syntax and cultural differences between Neil and myself. He was raised traditional, I was assimilated. This work was the result of that study on the other and the self as native forms of culture Miigweech I have a new playlist of songs here: link Thank you for stopping by. RIP dear sister Diane Fehr. Hope you are all well, thank you for visiting. March 22, 2023, just finished the run of Everyman at Concordia University. He performed as an actor and as well performed music for a hymn. The world is getting harder, but have faith in the one above XOXO The video I created for Fundraiser of June 19th in Edmonton AB is on youtuber. Take care, God be with you all YouTube
