We cordially invite you to our last Kiezsalon of 2020 with Montreal-based experimental composer and saxophonist Jason Sharp and cellist and new classical composer Justin Wright.
► Jason Sharp has been a fixture of Montréal’s experimental/improv scene for many years, as a saxophonist exploring drone and durational music, and collaborating in a wide variety of jazz, avant and contemporary music ensembles. Sharp uses custom-built equipment to translate rhythms of the human body into variegated sonic triggers, other modes of signal processing and more traditional instrumentation: https://youtu.be/0Vc2qbOSBd0
► Justin Wright is a cellist and composer pushing the boundaries of melancholic chamber music and experimental indie. A prolific collaborator in countless Montreal-based projects, Justin has established himself as one of Canada’s most innovative and versatile cellists. He has completed four music residencies at the prestigious Banff Centre for the Arts and shared the stage with the likes of Colin Stetson, Jóhann Jóhannsson and Mount Eerie: https://youtu.be/rWoTWHVdFbs
