Last night I attended the opening night performance of Terminal City Soundscape which was curated by David Pay, Director of the Music on Main series, with musicians, a choir, recordings and sounds it was an event defining Vancouver musically. This PuSH Festival production runs two more nights thru January 25th.
Through intercultural music and free improv, through the World Soundscape Project and a musical fascination with beauty, Vancouver leaders composers, performers and musical thinkers have shown us how the local is universal.
You’ll experience All, an immersive, interdisciplinary collaboration between award-winning filmmaker Mina Shum and Vancouver’s Standing Wave Ensemble, and hear Jocelyn Morlock’s transcendent Exaudi with vocal ensemble musica intima and cellist Ariel Barnes.
Other works include Hildegard Westerkamp’s Kits Beach Soundwalk and Barry Truax’s Riverrun alongside music by Veda Hille, Bramwell Tovey, Rodney Sharman, and many others.
There were 3 sets and each had a very unique program, my favourite was “All” Created by local filmmaker Mina Shum as well as vocal ensemble musica intima and cellist Ariel Barnes.
Make sure that you check out one of the last performances at the Heritage Hall tonight or tomorrow night at 8:00 pm.
