Event Description


Composer/percussionist Germaine Liu is one of Toronto’s most fascinating musicians. Whether coaxing rhythms from a drum kit, a bag of marbles or coffee mugs, her percussive sound world is wide open. Still Life is a 45-minute composition/sounding installation composed of a collection of objects found in Toronto activated by four players (Susanna Hood, Heather MacPhail, Sahara Morimoto and Germaine Liu). The found objects will be prepared or left as they are, then brought to life through sound and movement by the seven players. The goal of the performance is to create an opportunity to honour these found objects with an attempt to focus on the exchanges and negotiations of partnership between object and human. Germaine handpicked the opening quartet from among her female peers in this city’s improvised music community.
