The Music Gallery Presents

Germaine Liu: Still Life WORLD PREMIERE + Rebecca Hennessey/Heather Saumer/Bea Labikova/Karen Ng 

Doors: 7:30PM/Concert 8PM
$18 Regular/$13 Advance/$10 Students, Members, EARLYBIRD

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 her most ambitious project to date: a 45-minute composition/sounding installation composed of a collection of objects found in Toronto activated by five players (Susanna Hood, Julie Lassonde, Heather MacPhail, Sahara Morimoto and Germaine Liu). 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. Rebecca Hennessy, Bea Labikova, Karen Ng and Heather Saumer need no introduction to Toronto’s improvising community, and this brass/horn ensemble makes its debut at X Avant by special request from Liu.
