New Music Edmonton is thrilled to present the début concert of a new concert series featuring fresh artistic voices in the city. In partnership with one of the city’s most-loved live music venues, The Aviary, the first concert will feature musical voices from across the spectrum of contemporary and experimental music practices. From new acoustic virtuosi like flutist Kendall Leighton and percussionist Ben Vanderkruk who captivate with the 21st century sounds they coax out of their “classical” instruments, to cutting edge electroacoustic-based composers Tiffany Sparrow Grace and Rio Houle who deftly sculpt dreamy music out of computers, to the cross disciplinary artists like pianist-improviser Rebecca Parsons and her partner poet Eliot Howard, these fresh voices will all come together to kick off the series. They’ll also be joined by مصطفى رفيق in their solo project Family Injera, who blends guitar with field recordings to make a meditative psychedelic experience, and Edmonton’s newest hot jazz combo Good Information, fronted by drummer Biboye Onanuga.
