Music from the high skies! The yearly journeys of Monarch butterflies between Quebec and Mexico have grown into an eco-musical theme for Véronique Lacroix, director of ECM+ (Ensemble contemporain de Montréal+), who has brought together 13 musicians, 7 composers, and 3 videographers from both places. With no fewer than 7 premieres, this concert represents a unique marriage between music and the new technologies that have shed light on the fragile beauty of our environment and an endangered species. A prelude to the concert — a documentary on Monarch butterflies. ECM+ has produced innovative multi-disciplinary concerts, presented ensembles and young guest soloists, and pushed the envelope of musical creativity since it was founded in 1997.
Coproduction ECM+ / Conservatoire de musique de Montréal / MNM
