Soundbarrier by Roisin Adams & Cai Shashrvacai – Filament

‘Filament’, is a collaborative concert project featuring 5 world premieres for violin and electronics by emerging artists/composers from across Canada: Róisín Adams and Cai, Germaine Liu, Colin Labadie, Ben Wylie and Julia Mermelstein. Each piece explores what happens when electroacoustic, multi-media, or improvisational elements stretch the boundaries of what it means to compose/perform/create works for ‘solo’ violin.

‘Filament’ is co-presented by Arraymusic with generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the SOCAN Foundation, Ontario Arts Council and Arraymusic.
