Neo Nativism versus New Music

Western Front presents
Neo Nativism versus New Music
collaboration with Warren Arcand

In 1989, a group of young Aboriginal artists took the floor at the Western Front for an influential multi-media performance entitled Neo Nativism, an expression of traditional Aboriginal culture through new technology. Fall 2014 marks its 25th anniversary and to celebrate Russell Wallace, one of Neo Nativism’s founding members, curates a night of New Music revisiting it’s original aim to connect tradition with modernity. The evening features contemporary Aboriginal music co-composed by Russell Wallace and Remy Siu; Pat Ernst and Lan Tung; Michael Park and Warren Arcand; and arrangements of traditional Aboriginal music for a large ensemble by Tony Wilson.

Leading up to this performance, artist Russell Wallace will explore playback transformation of ancient found reel-to-reel audio tape which he will cut and weave into a neo Coast Salish cape. You can follow it online at “Echoic Chamber.

Piano Erhu Project CD Release Party @ Modulus Festival

Modulus Festival presents
Piano Erhu Project CD Release Party
CD includes Moonless Night

Doors and Bar open at approximately 6:30 pm | Concert starts at 7:00 pm

General Admission seating. All ages welcome.

 

Two exceptional musicians join forces to create a new genre.

Pianist Corey Hamm and erhu virtuoso Nicole Li created the PEP (Piano Erhu Project) to synthesize the best of Chinese and Western music.

Corey is hailed for brilliant, tour de force performances of music that leaves audiences breathless.  Nicole is praised for an expressive versatility that ranges from classical to rock, folk song to new music.  Together, they’ve worked with more than 30 composers to develop a cross-cultural repertoire entirely their own.

Stylistically diverse and filled with beauty, their Modulus Festival programme includes world premieres by composers Jocelyn Morlock, Edward Top, Dorothy Chang, and Keith Hamel.  The concert also marks the release of the Piano Erhu Project’s first CD.

 

The Roundhouse is wheelchair accessible. Please inform Music on Main of any mobility needs when booking your tickets: 604.879.9888 or by email at info@musiconmain.ca.

The 2014 Modulus Festival is generously sponsored by Bryan Price.
