The duo of Montreal-based Elizabeth Millar and Craig Pedersen works with closely amplified clarinet and trumpet, creating long-form improvisations based in sound textures. Making a point of collaboration they have worked with numerous international artists, most recently Japanese improvising veterans Toshimaru Nakamura and Tetuzi Akiyama. Active touring artists, they have played over 165 concerts together in the last four years, coast-to-coast throughout Canada and in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Mexico and Australia.In the workshop they will introduce their approaches to collaborative improvisation, use of composed elements, form, structure, extended techniques and amplification. Workshop participants are invited to bring their instruments (or voice) to play with the group. The workshop will prioritize playing and creating work together in an inclusive environment.

 

***Participants are asked to bring their own amplifiers if possible***

“Should you be without any information and listening to this music, you could easily believe this is some electro-acoustic music; maybe of objects pushed around on a carpet, but then heavily amplified; very soft in volume but very powerful at the same time. This is some fascinating stuff.” -Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly.

Montreal-based Sound of the Mountain (Elizabeth Millar & Craig Pedersen) plays amplified clarinet and trumpet. Since forming in 2015, they have played over 150 concerts together, developing a sound language that merges acoustic and electronic textures through amplification. Active touring artists, they have played coast-to-coast throughout Canada and in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Mexico and Australia. They have collaborated with numerous Canadian and international artists, most recently with Japanese improvising musicians Toshimaru Nakamura and Tetuzi Akiyama.
