Works by Joachim and Tremblay.

Otto Joachim and Gilles Tremblay: Pioneers of Electronic Music (Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the journal Circuit, musiques contemporaines).

A tribute to two composers from Quebec who both participated in Expo 67: Otto Joachim, who celebrates his 100th birthday in 2010, composed Katimavik (the first work in Canada to be composed entirely of electronically-generated sounds) for the Canadian Pavillion, and Gilles Tremblay, who is the subject of the SMCQ’s 2010 Homage Series, composed an electronic soundscape, Centre-élan, for the Quebec Pavillion. Both works will be performed and the installation will also include an exhibition of Joachim’s paintings.
