Freewheeling flights of swinging jazz are contrasted by gutbucket funk, or a bittersweet folk ballad; the band plays stages of all kinds for diverse audiences, relying on their certainty that deep music played with soul connects with everyone.

Bianca Gannon (IRE/AUS)/ Nicolas Caloia Trio

Bianca Gannon performs piano and mixed gamelan (Indonesian pitched percussion) simultaneously. Creating otherworldly resonances between these two tunings, she re-imagines ritualistic rhythms and minimalism with extended harmony. Ethereal sorcery occurs when she bows her gangsa, wafting difference tones out into the cosmos, illuminated with ecstatic piano fills. Seemingly through-composed, this is entirely improvised.
*****************************

Three musicians listening to what appears to settle but is in fact transformed through the continuous exchange of ideas. A music where the act of improvising is never totally assertive but remains open to the possibility of its own dissolution. Charuest, Shalabi and Caloia push, pull, propose, listen, take their time, retreat.

Call it pop / classical / jazz / destiny? the Plastic Waste Band is a project inspired by humanity's relationship with out own environment and our insistence on destroying that which sustains us. Comprised of accomplished musicians from all over the U.S. ad Canada, the band's music transitions fluidly between its jazz, psychedelic rock, and minimalistic influences, while always maintaining at its core the spontaneity of improvised music. pomes is an up-and-coming, genre-bending band based in Toronto, Ontario. Kieran Smyth (songwriter, singer, and guitarist) moved from the East coast to Toronto to eventually form pomes with members Ben Green (drums), Thomas Hainbuch (bass), and Jeremy Hucal (piano). Blending the naturalistic sounds of the East coast with the progressive, industrial sounds of Toronto, pomes’ music is an infusion of country/folk, jazz, and math-rock. These genres blend together to create a soundscape upon which stanzas of honesty soar.

James Fernando // The Claire Devlin Trio

James Fernando is a pianist and composer whose music lies at the intersection of jazz, classical, and electronic music. He relies on his genre-expanding original compositions to deliver thought provoking and exciting performances. The Berklee College of Music graduate released his debut album Extended Layover in 2018 as a collaboration with Mingjia Chen and released his first album as a solo artist, The Lonely Sailor , in 2019. Formed in 2017, the Claire Devlin Trio unites three unique musical voices from the Montreal jazz scene. Lyrical melodies are paired with driving rhythms, and the traditional roles of each instrument are often left behind. The trio's repertoire of original music strikes a balance of intricate through-composition and completely open-ended improvisation.

Ocelot: Formed in 2018, Ocelot is a Brooklyn based Avant-Jazz collective trio consisting of Yuma Uesaka (Saxophone/Clarinets), Cat Toren (Piano/Keyboard) and Colin Hinton (Drums/Percussion). As all members of Ocelot are prolific composers and improvisers, the group’s repertoire is varied and dynamic. Ocelot hones their sound with rhythmic propulsion, long lyrical melodies, soft textures, and aggressive free jazz, exploring each sound-world to its nethermost depths and transformations. The group has a synergy that brings out the confidence and trust necessary for deep musical exploration while showcasing full command of their individual instruments. Ocelot exemplifies the emergent wave of musicians that work within the intersections of many musical idioms including jazz, contemporary western classical, and noise music. Ayelet Rose Gottlieb: Jerusalem-born, Montreal-based composer and vocalist Ayelet Rose Gottlieb is an explorer of sound and seeker of musical adventures. With an early classical background, Ayelet is an improviser rooted in the Jazz and Blues traditions. Singing in Hebrew, English and without words (using her voice as an instrument), Ayelet “blends Mid­dle-East­ern trad­itions with wide-open ab­strac­tions.” (the Vancouver Sun)
