Event Description

Sarah Hennies, a composer/percussionist based in Ithaca, NY whose work is concerned with a variety of musical, sociopolitical, and psychological issues including queer & trans identity, love, intimacy and psychoacoustics. Following the worldwide acclaim of her documentary of trans peoples’ voices Contralto (2017) Hennies brings The Reinvention of Romance (2018) an epic 90-minute work for cello (Nick Storring) and percussion to Canada for the first time. Sound of the Mountain aka Craig Pederson and Elizabeth Millar have been quiet road warriors since 2015, having played over 160 concerts across the world, developing a sound language merging acoustic and electronic textures through amplification. This concert is part of their Canadian CD release tour, joined by guests no-input mixing board wizard Toshimaru Nakamura and guitarist Tetuzi Akiyama.
