Improv Workshop Project

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 leads Jean-Michel Pilc, Rémi Bolduc, 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. In this performance, the group will explore some of the ideas that they’ve been experimenting with over the past few months to create fresh music in the moment. The IWP is funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC).

HMMH — À partir du chaos

Six years already have passed since Pierre-Yves Martel and Carl Ludwig Hübsch, a most distinguished member of the European improv music scene, began working together. After their most recent Canadian tour, the idea was born to invite two like-minded Montreal female musicians to join them: both Joane Hétu and Émilie Mouchous gladly accepted the invitation. The Hmmh ensemble promises to be an open laboratory where each member’s musical approaches will humbly meet in order to create a space where sparse and minimal sound will open up new ways of listening.

Psc2 live @Resonance!

Psc2 combines the worlds of jazz, rock, classical music, and artificial intelligence via original compositions and arrangements. the compositions are built around the interplay of jazz harmonies, complex rhythms and extensive improvisation; many of them are composed in the “long-form” compositional style of classical music. the arrangements take well-known songs from pop, rock and jazz and re-build them in a manner similar to our original compositions. the arrangements include songs by michael jackson, guns n’ roses, silvio rodriguez, duke ellington and others. psc is a señor swesearcher in google brain, and is experimenting with using machine learning models (including generative models for music) as part of the live performance. most of the code used will be available in this repo. Psc2 used to be psctrio with 3 human intelligences.

An Evening with Ropeadope Records Artists Adam Ahuja & Trio Bruxo

Trio Bruxo (Montreal) In the vein of the great Brazilian piano trios of the 1960s & 1970s, Trio Bruxo takes songs from the rich library of musica popular brasileira (MPB) and filters them through their reverent yet improvisational lens. Adam Ahuja (New York) NYC-based Adam Ahuja is a live-looping artist, keyboardist, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist who melds jazz, rock, funk, soul and electronic music into a fluid style. He has drawn international recognition touring independently as an artist and as a past member of acts such as Robert Randolph & Family Band and the Ana Popovic Band. In 2017, Ahuja released the critically-acclaimed album “Ubiquity,” on which he composed and performed all music, including keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and voice, and wrote the lyrics. The album was released on Infinity Gritty, a label/consultancy founded by Ahuja in partnership with Grammy-Winning Ropeadope Records​. When Adam plays live, he offers what he calls a “neolive” experience: one in which he performs and loop-records various instruments on stage, including keyboards, key-bass, drumpads and vocals, often inviting interactive participation from audience members. Ahuja’s adept performances, charisma, and novel approach to the “one man band” paradigm have made him a widely viewed social media presence with individual videos generating well over 25,000 views.

As the project’s title suggests, Rhythm & Horns puts its focus on the melody and the rhythm of the music.

The group explores exclusively original material written by all the band members.

Impressions: The Rediscovery of Henriette Bosmans

We present music by Henriette Bosmans, a magnificent 20th century Dutch composer. Her life was complex with multifaceted elements: her drive to become an accomplished musician, her struggle to survive the Nazi regime, and her challenges as a bisexual woman in a time of societal denial and discrimination. Independently of this, she composed sublime music that stands alone as work of exceptional quality, beauty, and significance. We believe her music deserves a place among standard repertoire, and will release an album of her works for cello and piano in conjunction with live performances.
