The EMU Visual Arts Team welcomes UO alumnus Tyler Young’s second exhibit in the Aperture Gallery: People of Ecuador.Tyler completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies in the summer of '18. Tyler's "Hiking to The Enchantments, Washington" exhibit will be on-view through mid-February in the gallery. Artist's statement:

People of Ecuador

The People of Ecuador. They are different from the places, in fact, separate entirely. One can travel, see the world, take in the sights, the sounds, eat the food, and take the tour, but getting to know someone is an ordeal. Listening takes courage, and time. It cannot be done while traveling. Being stationary, absorbed in the moment and intent on communicating with another allows you to listen. Many people say to live in the moment, but there is no other way of being. No one exists in the past or the future, there is only the now. This moment, however fleeting will actively shape what’s to come. This burden is most difficult enough, let alone adding another person into the mix. Altogether separate morals, ideals, religious beliefs, friends, family, problems, and worries, why in the world would anyone want to inexorably tie their own life into another, even for a moment? And  It is harder than it seems, especially when there may be a language barrier.

 

Sometimes I chose not to. I ignored people, walked away, remained silent, or pretended not to understand, missed opportunities… everyone has their limits. As I spent more and more time in Ecuador, I began to become comfortable, I knew my way around several cities, towns, and communities, I could navigate my way on foot from Quito’s Basilica to La Plaza De Foch without the help of a friendly taxi driver who would sometimes take the long way around with Americans. I knew the bus routes, and could make my way from the Andean Cloud Forests to the Amazon where I spent most of my time. I knew more about medicinal, and fruit bearing plants than a few of the locals, but substantially less than the few who were in the know. It was somewhat of a lost art which I longed for. But I didn’t live there, I was only there filming for a documentary. I was a traveler. I could easily pay the dollar per hour fares on the bus, I was American after all. Eventually I got by with my Spanish, without trouble, without fear. Soon enough, no one realized I wasn’t a local, and after about 8 months of my year there, I certainly felt like one. I began going through the motions, doing things without the want or need for more deeply connected interactions between myself and the locals. No one would second guess my doings like they might some of my lighter skinned friends. I don’t look American after all.

 

They were interested to hear where I was from, they thought I was Colombian, or Brazilian, my presence often brought a smile to their face. Once we spoke for more than brief interaction, they realized I wasn’t a local, and they began to treat me as such. It’s funny how we might more easily connect with an outsider than an insider. Everyone has their own way of connecting. I was offered meals, and places to stay, I was encouraged to try locally grown coffee and chocolate. I did not like the fried maduros, I preferred the patacones, I didn't try the cuy, I was examined with a microscope, I was glanced over as a tourist, I was robbed, I was drugged, I was chased and bitten by rabid dogs, by mosquitos, and by the local flirts. Someone asked me to marry their daughter, I laughed, he laughed too. I asked to take his photograph.

 

Enjoy.

Opening act: Free Creatures

Shook Twins have never been sonically confined to the indie-folk world in which they’ve become well-known artists. Identical twins Katelyn and Laurie Shook have always harnessed an adventurous spirit, never shy to incorporate beatboxing, banjo-head drumming, vocals using a repurposed telephone microphone, and other ambient sources within their arrangements. On their latest single, “Call Me Out”, Shook Twins once again take another leap from the acoustic music scene with a vibey, pop-infused soundscape with a poignant message ready to be embraced by the masses. Lush harmonies, delayed banjo pickin’, deep drums, and multi-layered lead vocals draw the listener into the band’s latest single.

“We feel strongly about holding each other accountable in this life,” says Laurie Shook. “There are a lot of distractions in the world, and it's easy to not be fully ‘awake;’ disrespectful; or to feel the need to ‘show and tell’ in order to prove your worth. When really all we need to be is good, honest human beings and everything will work out. ‘Call Me Out’ is about taking on the responsibility to help those around you become better people. To encourage them to live up to their fullest potential.”

Katelyn Shook adds, “Once we accepted that this song felt good with a poppy club approach it sort of opened the door of our ‘folk house’ we've been living in, and we felt more confident heading into the studio with no genre rules."

Shook Twins teamed up with hip hop producer Brody Bergholz (Indigital Studios) and longtime bandmate Niko Slice (electric guitar, electronic drums, bass) on “Call Me Out.” Bergholz worked as an engineer on Shook Twins’ first two studio albums, You Can Have The Rest and Window. Shook Twins are currently in the studio recording their next full-length studio album, due out in early 2019.

Since the release of their debut album, You Can Have The Rest, Shook Twins have shared the stage with the likes of Ryan Adams, Laura Veirs, Mason Jennings, Sarah Jarosz, Gregory Alan Isakov, Crooked Still, and many others. They’ve appeared at premiere festivals, including Summer Camp Music Festival (IL), Arise Music Festival (CO), High Sierra Music Festival (CA), Northwest String Summit (OR), Revival Fest (MN), Suwannee Hulaween (FL), and recently toured the UK and Germany.
