World premiere of Anna Pidgorna’s “Mirror, mirror.” Works by Derek Charke, Richard Karpen, Emily Doolittle, Martin Arnold, and WL Altman will be performed with flair and verve. Charke’s work will feature evocative live video processing by Lukas Pearse.

On February 19th, The Phantom Voice offers a unique opportunity to experience a rich palette of electroacoustic music through a multi-speaker surround sound system.

Be swept away by transcendent sounds from outstanding contemporary composers Karlheinz Stockhausen, Hildegard Westerkamp, Bob Bauer and Steven Naylor.
