Thin Edge New Music Collective (Toronto) and Ensemble Paramirabo (Montreal) team up to present a dynamic concert program featuring Steve Reich’s Nobel prizewinning Double Sextet, Louis Andriessen’s politically charged Worker’s Union, and the World Premiere of a new work for all 12 musicians by Brian Harman (Toronto/Montreal). ‘Raging Against the Machine’ aims to establish meaningful connections between artists and organizations with distinct geographical, cultural and linguistic identities.

This project is inspired by the driven rhythmic nature of both Reich and Andriessen’s compositions as well as the process of overcoming certain challenges currently facing artists in Canada. Tonight’s concert will also include the World Premieres of new compositions written for each respective ensemble by Anna Höstman (Toronto) and Patrick Giguère (Montreal). TENMC and Ensemble Paramirabo will bring ‘Raging Against the Machine’ to venues across Canada between February and April 2015 including performances at New Music Edmonton, New Works Calgary, University of Manitoba, Music on Main/Little Chamber Music Series that could in Vancouver, and Open Space Art Society in Victoria.
