Concert Totem - Cairn : The art of reinvention
PTC joins Ensemble Cairn to perform three works by composers chosen for the originality of their approach. This unusual instrumentarium - two Babel Tables and a Siren Organ - responds to the classical instruments in an unprecedented junction between raw materials and sound materials. The result is a delightful performance in which the vitality of the colors and the plasticity of the sound bring out unexpected sonic perspectives. As a prelude, the three performers of Totem propose an improvisation to let the Totem instruments be heard in their natural state.
This concert takes place as part of the Montreal / New Music Festival on Thursday, February 24, 2023, 9:00 pm at the BlackBox of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Concordia University - EV Building - Concordia University.
