Premiere: March 6, 2015, Montréal / Nouvelles Musiques 2015: Uphonias II, Cinémathèque québécoise, Montréal (Québec)
A mesostic poem by Sandeep Bhagwati serves as a score for a sound installation and performance in open and enclosed spaces. Eight composition students, selected from three Montréal universities (Line Katcho, Dario Lozano-Thornton, Alexis Langevin-Tétrault, Lucas Paris, Pierre-Luc Lecours, Shayla Chilliak, Myriad Boucher, Louis Thompson-Amadei) have worked with Adam Basanta in a three month-long workshop to realize a collective interpretation of this poem-score. This installation-performance will take place in and before the Cinémathèque québécoise. Audiences will be able to read the score— and hear and see its realization.
