Join us for an exploration of sound. You’ve seen the 3D films... now hear 3D music! Works are projected on 8 speakers surrounding the hall.
Tonight features four works by prominent Nova Scotia and New Brunswick composers, including Lorne Altman, Robert Bauer, Derek Charke, and our special co-curator for this year's festival, Halifax based composer and sound artist, Steven Naylor. Most of these works are so fresh and just off-the-press that we don't have titles for them yet and others are new to the Maritimes.
On the second half we are treated to two amazing compositions by our SOCAN Foundation guest composer, Hildegard Westerkamp, who is visiting us all the way from Vancouver.
Für Dich – For You is based on the poem Liebes-Lied by Rainer Maria Rilke and its newest translation into English, Love Song, by Canadian poet and writer Norbert Ruebsaat. Into the Labyrinth is a sonic journey into aspects of India's culture. It occurs on the edge between dream and reality, in the same way in which many visitors experience this country. Nothing ever happens according to pre-determined plans or expectations. Although travellers usually do reach their destination somehow, the journey itself - full of continuous surprises and unexpected turns - becomes the real place of experience.
