Improv Workshop Project featuring Jean-Michel Pilc (piano), Remi Bolduc (saxophone), Kevin Dean (trumpet)

Based in Montreal, the Improvisation Workshop Project (IWP) brings together musicians of all backgrounds to explore the tradition of jazz as “improvised chamber music.” The Résonance sessions are a unique opportunity to witness the act of live collective improvisation in concert. www.improvworkshopproject.com The IWP is funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC). ___________________________________ Jean-Michel Pilc (piano), Remi Bolduc (saxophone), Kevin Dean (trumpet), among others. Based in Montreal, Canada, the Improvisation Workshop Project (IWP) brings together musicians of all backgrounds and experience levels (students and professional musicians, jazz and classical) to explore the tradition of jazz as “improvised chamber music” based on collective improvisation. Weekly playing sessions assemble different casts of musicians to try new ideas and interpret new material brought by project lead Jean-Michel Pilc, team members Rémi Bolduc and Kevin Dean, and other participants. Using an “improvisation as instant composition approach and the collective improvisational process, the IWP investigates how such diverse disciplines as composition, orchestration, musical interpretation and improvisation combine organically into a coherent whole in jazz music, and also how a diverse lineup of musicians can hold natural and meaningful musical conversations. The project's innovative research approach involves thorough documentation of the creative improvisation process, including post-playing session journals logged by all participants, allowing them to share their thoughts on the artistic process. By drawing from musicians’ insider perspectives, this archive provides a unique research resource for the study of improvisation-composition within a variable medium-size jazz ensemble. The IWP is funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC).

Thollem: Acoustic & Electric

”One of the most captivating pianists working today,” (Jazz.pt, Portugal) Thollem McDonas has spent his life skirting and erasing the edges of boundaries musically, culturally and geographically. His work is ever-changing, evolving and responding to the times and his experiences, both as a soloist and in collaboration with hundreds of artists across idioms and disciplines. “Thollem is a modern griot who has absorbed sounds from every place he has visited.” (William Parker from Conversations II, Rogue Art) Thollem’s solo piano performance, “‘Meeting at the Parting Place”, is a true tour de force of spontaneous music creation; a wonderful example of what happens when immense technique, boundless inspiration and highly focused artistic vision converge.” (All About Jazz NY) Thollem's Electric Confluence is exactly what you'd think music influenced by Ethiopia, Japan, China, Persia, Latin America, Ireland, Indonesia, Vietnam, Russia, The Balkans, Jazz, Blues, Punk, Country and the Avant Garde might sound like played on a synthesizer by an intense and virtuosic keyboardist. (Time Out, New York) Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Thollem began playing the piano, composing and improvising as a child, absorbing the sounds of his culturally diverse upbringing. Since 2005, he has played over 1,500 concerts throughout N. America and Europe as a soloist and in collaboration with other musicians, dancers and filmmakers. In that time span, as leader or co-leader, Thollem has released over 60 albums on 21 different vanguard labels - including ESP-Disk, Edgetone, Relative Pitch, Amarani, Leo - to international critical acclaim. The 2nd Thollem/Wimberly/Cline album will be released on ESP-disk this summer. A brief cross section of his many recent collaborators include Pauline Oliveros, Amy Denio, Rob Mazurek, William Parker, André Stjames, Carmina Escobar and Hafez Modirzadeh. Thollem is the founding director of Estamos Ensemble, a Mexican-American cross border ensemble for musical exchange. “Thollem, known for his rapturous solo piano work which transgresses genre boundaries as much as it transcends them’ (All About Jazz NY) ,“…brings wide-ranging expression and invention to everything his restless, nomadic existence comes into contact with. Thollem’s maverick essence is magically evident.” (Nels Cline)

Areal + Bénédicte

Areal Areal is the musical project of the Danish composer Mathias Bredholt. Drawing from his background as an engineer, Areal fuses math, algorithms, and music, transforming the sounds of the biosphere. The synthetic textures seeks the crossing between alienation and familiarity, morphing between unresting flickers and soaring glissandi. Bénédicte Bénédicte is the musical project of Toronto born producer and sound artist Maxime Gordon. Bénédicte ‘s music is a study of restrained feeling, containing soaring synths within a landscape that is strictly minimalist. Bénédicte has most recently performed at H0L0 (NYC) as a part of Qualiatik’s residency, at Spirit (Prague) as a part of the Glory Affairs event series and at the Tranzac (Toronto) with SBVRSV.

Currently based in Paris, she teaches voice at the Conservatoire de Pontault-Combault and travels regularly for performances, teaching, and writing around the world. Philippe Aerts has been performing for many years with guitarist Philip Catherine, pianist Ivan Paduart, as well as a number of artists travelling through Europe, such as Lee Konitz, Joe Lovano, Tom Harrell, Joe Henderson, and many others. From 1997 to 2000, he lived in New York City and played with the Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra, Lew Tabackin, David Hazeltine, Mike LeDonne, Joe Magnarelli, amongst others.

Liberté Big Band : PROVA

Led by composer and pianist Liberté Anne, the Liberté Big Band is a vehicle for musical exploration, creativity and spontaneity, steeped in the jazz tradition. These sessions are open rehearsals where the public can get real sense of the musical creative and rehearsal process. PROVA is an exercise, an experimentation, a probing into possibilities as well as limitations. I encourage audience to come with curiosity, open ears and even critiques! Or just come to the usual Reso hang.

Babylonia

The Babylonia Suite, composed by Toronto drummer and composer Ilios Steryannis, is a celebration of Iraqi Jewish music and culture. The suite follows the movement of a family from Baghdad to Mumbai to Manchester, and finally Toronto. Expect elements of jazz, funk, Middle and Near Eastern sounds, and Ilios' trademark energetic percussion. It follows his debut album Bethany Project released in January 2018 to rave reviews and extensive airplay worldwide. The band consists of some of Toronto's finest jazz and world musicians: Paul Pacanowski on clarinet and flute, George Crotty on cello, Jeremy Ledbetter on piano, Connor Walsh on bass, and Ilios Steryannis on drums. The six-part suite will be performed during the first set of the evening while the second set will featuring other works from Ilios' catalogue.
