Continuum brings its own brand of urban music to Montréal. Two of Toronto’s most distinct downtown voices, Martin Arnold and James Rolfe, create off-kilter music of the stripped-down and sensual variety, while Gerald Barry revels in the drama of a system under stress. Yannick Plamondon’s Autoportrait sur Times Square evokes a moment of transfiguration at New York’s crossroads of consumerism. Sciarrino’s Lo Spazio Inverso proposes music “to awaken realization — in the moment when the market place has fallen silent in us.”
