Hot Fossils and Rebel Matters 208 – Let’s Begin With Bees

(Photograph by Ken Duret) http://kenduret.com/

This show is the first in a series of soundscapes and interviews conducted during the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium this year.

On my way to view the sound installations at the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium  on a hot humid night in August,  I found myself in conversation with a man named  John Board.  Now you may know who John Board is, but I didn’t.  If you can look him up on IMDB, you’ll see he’s been working in the film industry, primarily as an assistant director,  for more than 40 years.  Among the many films he’s worked are  Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers and other  David Cronenberg movies.    In 2010 John was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.   An advocate of homeopathy, he recently started using bees as part of his cancer treatement.  Last spring (2012), he won a $1000 prize from pUNK Films to document his story.    In this spontaneous interview with me, he tells me more.
