Description:

ArrayMusic and Solomiya Moroz Present:
Docu_Presence (June 13th, 2019 — ArrayMusic Space, Toronto)

Docu_Presence is an installation-performance which examines folklore broadly as an idea for cultural transmission, exploring the multifaceted layers of interaction in both traditional and urban contexts using sounds and images. This Toronto presentation will also appear at Suoni Per Il Popolo in Montreal June 17th!

A collaborative project between flutist/composer Solomiya Moroz (CA/UA), Ukrainian composer Ostap Manulyak, bandurist Julian Kytasty (CA/US), it also features performances by Ilana Waniuk (violin). The event works with juxtaposition: street music and concert music, folklore and contemporary interpretation, archival materials and immediate presence. In addition to installations by Manulyak and Oksana Kazmina it also includes concert works by Taylor Brook, Manulyak, and Moroz.
