Four New Works Coming to Arraymusic

Feb. 8, 8PM, The Array Space ($20/PWYC)

The Array Ensemble performs four new works commissioned by Arraymusic written by four of the most exciting composers working in Canada today: Marielle Groven (Montréal), Christopher Mayo (Toronto), Francis Ubertelli (Toronto) and Christina Volpini (Hamilton).

It will be a night of richly textured, physical, affecting music; generous, disorienting soundworlds open for exploration.

Marielle Groven (Montréal)
“… might be the coolest thing to ever happen to music.”
– Lauren O’Neill, Noisey

Christopher Mayo (Toronto)
Characterized by a distinctive rhythmic language and eclectic inspirations, Christopher’s work is described as “cogent, haunting… desperately poignant” (The Times) and “a steampunk collection of gnarly machine-like noises, flashy timbres, and explosive rhythms” (Classical Voice North America).

Francis Ubertelli (Toronto)
“…To say new things is to find or uncover that incommunicable meaning, that indefinable light that sleeps within the reflection of what one is able to reach.” — Ubertelli

Christina Volpini (Hamilton)
Explores varied textures and timbres, found objects, sonic spatialization & small changes unfolding over time.
