In the key of Oscar

This is a very short ambient video of the statue of Oscar Peterson at the National Arts Centre in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

 

I shot this video with ambient sound to capture some of his music that was playing over some speakers that are out of the frame.

 

This statue was unveiled in late June 2010 by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip who were in the city for Canada Day celebrations on July 1st.

 

I shot this video on Easter Sunday 2012 when I was walking around downtown in the late afternoon.
