Onomatopoeia is a collaborative concert exploring the nature of our relationship to sound and the components of spoken and musical language, featuring guest artists Toronto-based chamber choir GREX, and Montreal-based Jason Sharp (bass saxophone) and Kaie Kellough (word sound systemizer). Onomatopoeia will include the premiere of two compositions for TENMC and GREX by Toronto-based composers Elisha Denburg and Tova Tova G. Kardonne as well as works by Moondog, Meredith Monk, Simon Steen-Andersen, and Udo Kasemets. Jason Sharp and Kaie Kellough will present several works including Rail, a composition that incorporates language, text-animation, and layers of acoustic and electronic sound.
