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.

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.

Kalia Vandever is a trombonist and composer from Brooklyn, NY. Hailed as an “exciting new voice” by Hot House Magazine, Vandever’s quartet will be presenting music from her debut album, In Bloom, as well as new music. Her unique sound and approach to composition and improvisation is inspired by her broad musical influences, including her desire to make the instrument an extension of her voice.

Sarah Rossy: A recent finalist of the Ella Fitzgerald International Vocal Competition, the Montreal-based composer and multi-instrumentalist is rapidly creating a name for herself across the globe. As a composer, she has a keen interest in the performer/composer relationship through experiential processes which traverse through a feminist lens (Recollections [2019], To Be Silenced [2018], Prim(al) [2018]). Recent excursions include: study with Meredith Monk (New York), voice/movement research at The World is Sound (Berlin), composing for the Montreal Contemporary Music Lab, and two residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts [(R)evolution and International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music].

Thomas Carbou is a sound explorer. Sometimes improvising, always surprising, Carbou is a guitarist, composer, arranger, percussionist and sampler all at once. The result: bold, pleasantly complex music. Flirting with elements of traditional music and folk, Thomas Carbou's universe, however, can be best described as timeless electro-jazz, deployed without resistance.

Cory Harper-Latkovich solo, Émilie Fortin and Cory Harper-Latkovich duo

Verge/Resolve is not so much a composition so much as an exploration of Cory Harper-Latkovich’s (Clarinet Panic, Imaginary Flesh) continuing and expanding relationship with the cello. It is means to build a practice to counter a long period of apathy towards the instrument. A search for meaning and connection, long form structures, compositional sensibilities framing focused improvisation, a procession of static textures and slow processes, curiosities and fascinations, eschewing narrative or climatic intentions. Cory is joined by Èmilie Fortin for a second set of improvised live processed trumpet.

floating doc /// Non-Being Ad Nauseam

Floating Doc is a collaborative project between three Montreal artists; Benjamin Muñoz, Christian Brun del Re and Jonah Bild-Lowrie. The project took form in early 2019 during a live performance project for school work in the electroacoustic program at Concordia where all three artists are currently studying.Our improvisation emerges from decay, investigating ruination and salvage - not from a pessimistic perspective but rather through a lateral tending; a playful attunement to what sonic life-forms might be sculpted from the decay of popular forms such as hip-hop, dance, jazz and pop as well as those resulting from the academic methods of electroacoustic studies.
