We're excited to team up with junctQín for this session as part of the Toronto New Music Alliance's fifth annual New Music 101 series. Hosted by David Perlman, editor-in-chief of The WholeNote, sessions combine performance, presentation and discussion. On one half of the session, Continuum explores the meaning behind ma – a uniquely Japanese concept that thrives in all things around and between us. This multi-media lecture recital will draw upon Artistic Director Ryan Scott’s Doctoral research in Tokyo with extraordinary composers including Toshi Ichiyanagi and Jo Kondo. On the other half, the keyboard geeks of junctQín demonstrate extended techniques on the piano through the music of Finnish composer Tomi Räisänen.

Free admission.
