After a wonderful summer filled with travel and new ideas, I have several exciting projects to keep me busy this fall.
– I’m finishing a new work for flute and sho (a Japanese mouth organ, like a big harmonica!) that will be performed in Vancouver on October 22, as part of the Japanese Consulate’s 125th Anniversary celebrations. The work will be performed by Jeffrey Stonehouse (Montreal) and Naomi Sato (Japan/Netherlands).
– I am curating a concert for the Canadian Music Centre (Toronto) called ‘La Séduction de l’Incertitude’ featuring Quebec-centric music. The concert will take place on November 13, 2014 at 5:30pm and will feature Carla Huhtanen (soprano), Leslie Ting (violin) and Stephanie Chua (piano), with works by Patrick Giguère, Maxime McKinley, Analia Lludgar, Denys Bouliane and the Canadian premiere of my work Skolia, which was performed in Oslo and London in August as part of nu:nord.
– I’m also currently working on two other works: a chamber orchestra piece, to be performed later this fall by the Glenn Gould School New Music Ensemble (conducted by Brian Current), and a commission for 12 instruments, to be performed by the combined forces of the Thin Edge New Music Collective (Toronto) and Ensemble Paramirabo (Montreal) on a Canadian tour this winter/spring.
– The amazing Cheryl Duvall is also giving repeat performances of my solo piano/video work Still Life in Toronto and Kitchener.
More info about upcoming concerts coming soon.
