April 24 @ 1067 with Allison Cameron and Lee Hutzulak

I'm excited to be playing with electronics musicians

Allison Cameron and Lee Hutzulak www.leehutzulak.com.

The gig is at the new 1067 loft @ 1115B East Hastings

(entrance on Glen Drive).

Here's a little info on Allison.

Allison Cameron is a composer of chamber works that have

been performed throughout Europe and North America;

she is also an experimental performer.

 

Her works have been performed at numerous festivals and

numerous ensembles have commissioned her. She co-founded

the Drystone Orchestra in 1989 and founded the Arcana

Ensemble in 1992, both dedicated to the performance of

experimental music in Toronto. During 2000-2005, she

was the artistic director of the Arraymusic ensemble where

she created the Scratch! festival for experimental music.

Her chamber music has been released on XI records, CRI,

Spool, Donemus, Hevhetia, Musicworks and Rat-Drifting.

Allison is also a member of the Association of Improvising

Musicians of Toronto (AIMT) and since 2000 has been

improvising with small, amplified objects in collaboration

with many of Toronto’s finest musicians and internationally

respected performers. In 2007, Allison Cameron was awarded

a prestigious Chalmers Arts Fellowship to explore compositional

methods and indeterminate notations used in art rock, jazz,

free-improv, contemporary and folk musics. Since that time

she has formed the group known as The Allison Cameron

Band (with Eric Chenaux and Stephen Parkinson) that rehearses

regularly on new compositions. In 2010 their first CD was released

on the Rat-Drifting label, Toronto.

 

Recent projects include: a CD recording of the trio c_RL with

Germaine Liu (percussion) and Nicole Rampersaud (trumpet),

along with performances at the Tone Deaf Festival in Kingston,

Ontario, The Cameron House and Somewhere There in Toronto;

a digital release of a new piece Mach Shorn for the Allison

Cameron Band engineered by Sandro Perri; solo performances

at The Stone in New York City and the Tranzac in Toronto; and,

a future recording project of experimental music with

singer/songwriter Thom Gill of Is This Thomas.

This is her first solo tour (April 2012 - Canada Council for the Arts)

at six venues across Canada.
