A film and live music project years in the making, Souvenir brings together acclaimed filmmaker Gary Popovich with six of Canada’s top emerging and established composers: Linda Bouchard, Alice Ho, Jocelyn Morlock, Michael Oesterle, Randall Smith and Hiroki Tsurumoto. Each of the six movements in the hour-long Souvenir corresponds to stages in the evolution of our world and has a different mood and over-riding dynamic reflecting that evolution. The images and music move from our cosmological beginnings through the geological underpinnings of life on earth; major events in human development; and through perpetual cycles of creation and destruction, dizzying heights and meaningless depths. The music for Souvenir will be performed by a six-musician chamber ensemble plus acclaimed Canadian vocalists Shannon Mercer (soprano) and Krisztina Szabo (mezzo-soprano).
