c_RL with Olivia Shortt [CA]

2020-10-11 @ 17:00 - 20:00

Högskolan för Scen och Musik (HSM)

Canadian improv quartet exploring the sonic palette of trumpet, saxophone, percussion and electronics. Equal parts noise, skewed harmonies and minimalism.

c_RL is an innovative improvising trio that features some of Toronto’s most notable performers and composers, on this occasion reinforced with saxophonist Olivia Shortt. Their exploratory approach to timbre and gesture and interest in incorporating ‘found sounds’ has quickly become a trademark of their colorful sonic world. Although c_RL is primarily an improvising trio, they are also interested in structural approaches to composition such as in deconstructing and re-inventing the jazz standard repertoire.

In connection to the concert there will also be a live Q&A with the ensemble lead by Andreas Lindahl. c_RL with Olivia Shortt is presented in collaboration with Music Gallery, Toronto.
