Continuum, Arraymusic and the Music Gallery join forces to bring the artistic vision of The Netherlands’ famed Gaudeamus Muziekweek to Toronto. For decades Gaudeamus has been one of the most important breeding grounds for new directions in music. In this two-night summit, local and Dutch musicians and video artists express the latest in improvisation, and the ensembles of Continuum and Arraymusic are joined by Dutch musicians in works that crackle with Gaudeamus spirit.

Repertoire

A new structured improvisation by Allison Cameron (CA), an existing work by a Dutch composer and a collective improvisation.

Performers

Michiel van Dijk (saxophone), Nicole Rampersaud (trumpet), Koen Kaptijn (trombone), Josh Cole (bass), Rick Sacks (drums, percussion), Allison Cameron (electronics), Steve Reaume (improvised visuals).

Tickets
