The “Kitchen Party” is a chance for neighbors, family and friends to gather and enjoy good food, good music, and each other’s company. The Acadia New Music Festival, Shattering the Silence, delved into this intimate musical setting unique to Eastern Canada. Over the course of three hours on a snowy Sunday afternoon, in February 2013, composers, performers, and audience bumped elbows, shared food, and enjoyed some terrific music. The Kitchen Party CD captures the magic of that evening. Flutist Derek Charke and percussionist Mark Adam present seven new works by CMC Associate composers: Bob Bauer, Derek Charke, Anthony Genge, Jeff Hennessy, Steven Naylor, Jim O’Leary, and John Plant. A single strand of DNA links all seven works. A live improvisation on this musical strand is included on the CD.

The Kitchen Party CD will be launched on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 at Shattering the Silence 2014 at, appropriately enough, another Kitchen Party!

Shattering the Silence 2014 takes place in the picturesque town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, home to Acadia University, from Feb. 1 to 8, 2014. This year presents a stellar line-up, including: Allan Gordon Bell (SOCAN Foundation composer-in-residence); the festival ensemble, Nothin’ but Gnarly, conducted by Mark Hopkins and consisting of top Nova Scotia performers and presenting new commissions by Anthony Genge and Jérôme Blais; subText ensemble, led by Steven Naylor; Fifth Wind Quintet, featuring a brand new new work by Derek Charke; and much more.
