Description:

After a stellar debut in October, the TPC Ensemble takes to the stage once more, bringing Canadian artwork to life. Join us as we re-imagine great Canadian art from the past and present, transforming canvas and paint into notes and sound. This energetic concert will focus on the intersection of these two art forms – line, colour, gesture, and form are explored by each of the brand new compositions. Each of the visual works of art will be displayed while the pieces are performed onstage.

From local Toronto paintings to animations and video game art, the TPC have drawn on a diverse range of visual media for musical inspiration that playfully reflects each composer’s own unique style. World Premieres include: Sylvan Sworcery by Christian Floisand (art by Sylvian Coutouly), Get in Line by Glenn James (art by Zoë Cilliers), In the forest, glow. by Monica Pearce (art by Brandon James Scott), Strange Gazes and Birdsong by Fiona Ryan (art by Kate Domina) and Walking by Chris Thornborrow (animation by Ryan Larkin). Also joining the TPC Composers will be guest composer Patrick Murray, who has written Skin and Bone (with art by Ognian Zekoff) for the ensemble. Come hear what art sounds like and what music looks like.
