jef chippewa & LUX:NM
March 22, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
LUX:NM contemporary music ensemble (Berlin) are joined by Canadian musicians to perform works by jef chippewa (CA), Sarah Nemtsov (DE) and others. The centrepiece of the concert is chippewa’s “cabinet de curiosités” (2015), a 35-minute concert-theatre-fluxus work in 9 parts for saxophone, accordion, violin, trombone and sound objects. The piece reflects his interests in the 1960s art movement Fluxus and the use of everyday objects as sonic/musical components, as well as the ensemble’s on-going commitment to performances that explore the convergence of music and theatre.
Co-presented with the University of Manitoba Desautels Faculty of Music
