Motion Ensemble (Karin Aurell, flutes; Richard Hornsby, clarinets; Nadia Francavilla, violin; Andrew Miller, contrabass; D’Arcy P. Gray, percussion/electronics; Helen Pridmore, soprano) is a chamber music group based in New Brunswick, Canada. Their repertoire is an eclectic mix of post-classical and experimental music. Motion’s music often utilizes electronics or visual media. The group has been presenting its own concerts since 1998, now with a series in Saint John called Open Arts and additional concerts in Sackville, Moncton and Fredericton; they also reach thousands of school children through their educational projects.
