Spectrum Music’s season launch at Alliance Française this Wednesday evening at 9pm is both a party and a mixer. Set against a soundscape created by composer and cellist Nick Storring, this is a rare opportunity to experience the other-worldly vocal and electronics duo, Barnyard Drama, featuring Christine Duncan & Jean Martin.

Founded in 2010 as a collective of contemporary music composers with their feet planted in the classical and jazz tradition, Spectrum Music has cultivated a strong roster of performers who are regular collaborators, with the support of Duncan herself as artistic advisor, and advisor emeritus Andrew Downing.

Spectrum Music’s Interface at Nuit Blanche


A living metaphor of what happens when the boundaries between performers and audiences are erased.

Art installation meets live improvisation with audience interaction at Spectrum Music‘s remount of Matthew Roberts’ electro-eco-acoustic “Interface” during the upcoming Nuit Blanche in Toronto. “Interface” is a participatory audio-visual installation that uses live performers, electronics, and human touch in synergy to create morphing soundscapes. It is a living metaphor of what happens when the boundaries between performers and audiences are erased.

“Interface” was first presented at the season launch concert for Spectrum Music last year. With their 2014-2015 season launch slated for next Wednesday, the re-mounting of “Interface” at a larger scale as part of Toronto’s Nuit Blanche activities is a fitting pre-launch party. Find them at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw Street) with new performers every hour form 7pm to 7am. Read on…
