X AVANT XV: c_RL + Olivia Shortt | October 11
Goteborg Art Sounds, in association with the Music Gallery, presents
c_RL + Olivia Shortt
October 11, 2020
One of the most exciting events for us in October 2020 for us was supposed to be co-curating Goteborg Art Sounds festival in Sweden. Plans, ahem, changed. Fortunately, it has worked out that the Music Gallery can still follow through with programming – and everyone can see it!
c_RL are composed of Allison Cameron, Germaine Liu and Nicole Rampersaud – all of whom are frequent guests of ours, onstage and off. One of the great improv/noise ensembles in Toronto in recent years, their album Friends achieved a great deal of Bandcamp acclaim since its release 5 years ago.
Here, they take advantage of the medium in which we present by offering a series of additive works. One musician improvises, passes it to another, who improvises on top of that, and so on. Additionally, the trio were to have journeyed to Gothenburg with our festival co-curator, Olivia Shortt for a unique expansion of their sonic alchemy. Solo or ensemble-based, these four have non-stop creativity!
