Participatory Improvisation Session w/ Sound of the Mountain
Saturday, October 12th, 2019, 3pm
***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.
