HOUSE MUSIC | METROPOLIS ENSEMBLE
Metropolis Ensemble’s series, House Music, reflects its values of putting community at the heart of its practice, and allows it to continue to create opportunities for artists to do what they do best: make and share new music. All artists are being paid for their work. Metropolis Ensemble is commissioning performers to present bite-sized works from contemporary composers, as well as composers to create new works specifically for this series, which are then recorded from wherever the artists are sheltering. “House Music” launched in late March and streams live every Tuesday and Thursday.

TUNING TALKS-PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE TO IMPROVE INTONATION | NEXT FESTIVAL 2020
Why does a note sound in tune or not? How can we play more in tune with our colleagues? How do we know what’s the correct intonation for a given note? JACK Quartet addresses the fundamental problems of intonation with clear, practical knowledge, empowering us to make harmonious choices and speak clearly about what we want from the intonation of any given passage in music. Developing a deeper understanding of intonation is a powerful tool in a balanced set of musical skills, one of the keys to a clear-headed artistry. JACK will be taking questions throughout the presentation via chat and in Q&A sessions.

RACHELLE RAHMÉ | ISOLATED FIELD RECORDING SERIES
In response to COVID-19’s impact, ISSUE is commissioning artists to produce field recordings to be streamed over the course of this challenging and isolated time. This series will support artists directly in an unprecedented moment of uncertainty, struggle, and financial risk and emphasize the solidarity of artists working in a situation where everyday life is confined and separated. Focusing on recordings from artists’ current conditions, the series will broadly approach the field recording as an expanded form and open invitation to experiment with home audio recording during this period of social distancing.
