Founded in 2011 by co-artistic directors pianist Cheryl Duvall and violinist Ilana Waniuk, Thin Edge New Music Collective is passionately dedicated to supporting their peers through commissioning and performance, bringing innovative and eclectic 20th and 21st century music to audiences both existing and as yet untapped. In addition to presenting a Toronto based concert series, TENMC has participated in artistic residencies at the Banff Centre and performed on concert stages across Canada. TENMC is thrilled to announce their selection by Arraymusic as Ensemble-In-Residence at the Arrayspace in Toronto for their 2015–2016 season.

Light Show is a concert inspired by the 2015 year of Light and Light Sciences. This concert will feature the world premiere of a new work by Michael Oesterle for piano and violin commissioned by Daniel Cooper, Tristan Murail’s spectral masterpiece Treize couleurs du soleil couchant, and Nicaraguan-American composer and guitarist Gabriel José Bolaños Chamorro’s A Trip Down Market Street for chamber ensemble and silent film.

Light Show will also include the Toronto premiere of Music for Lamps by Montreal-based sound artists and composers Adam Basanta, Max Stein, and Julian Stein, an installation and performance work for 12 sound and light emitting lamps. Each lamp is discreetly outfitted with a surface transducer speaker, turning the lamps into both light and sound emitters. The lamps are arranged to both surround and permeate audience members, creating a 12 channel light and 14 channel sound performance. The installation investigates the potential of domestic objects, both to recall their quotidian functions and – through aesthetic transformation – transcend them.

Light Show is presented with generous support from the Toronto Arts Council and Arraymusic.
