Patchwork (Cleveland, USA) - Noa Even, saxophone and Stephen Klunk, percussion
Patchwork, is a Cleveland-based saxophone and drum set duo that collaborates with composers to build an eclectic body of new music. Since forming the group in 2013, Noa Even and Stephen Klunk have commissioned over a dozen works. Patchwork has performed on many college campuses, often combine performances with educational events such as composer readings, master classes, and presentations. Their recent tours include shows at Constellation in Chicago, Spectrum in New York City, Omaha Under the Radar.
Stereoscope (Toronto, Canada) - Olivia Shortt and Jacob Armstrong, saxophones
with guests Lindsay McIntyre, soprano and Kathleen Leggasick, dancer
Toronto’s newest saxophone duo, Stereoscope – Olivia Shortt and Jacob Armstrong is a creative and quirky duo dedicated to the development of their instrument’s repertoire and commissioning composers to write for saxophone. They’re not afraid to use electronics, collaborate with dancers and other artists or make new sounds. It’s all in a day’s work. For this event, the duo performs an eclectic program of works by Robert Lemay, Ben Wylie, and Finola Merivale.
Merivale, an Ireland-based composer, has written a work for saxophone duo, dancer and vocalist, exploring the concept of home and security. Lemay's work Fragments Noirs was originally written as a collaboration with poet Thierry Dimanche and the SnoLab, a Neutrino Lab in Sudbury. Wylie's piece was conceived when Stereoscope was a participant at the 2015 Montreal Contemporary Music Lab as a sonic exploration of the saxophone (using sounds such as multiphonics and harmonics).
