EXTREMELY SLOW MUSIC.

Sanctuary Theatre, 228 Germain Street.

7:00 pm. New Brunswick bass player Andrew Reed Miller will play a 90 minute work for solo bass and computer written for him by renowned experimentalist André Cormier. The event is presented by Open Arts. Admission is by donation; $10 is suggested. “André’s music can change your perception of time; it tends to be very quiet, hypnotic and since it can last a very long time, listeners are encouraged to bring a yoga mat, or a pillow to get comfy and immerse themselves in the sound”; says Miller. The work, titled “Piling Sand, Piling Stone IV” was commissioned by Miller and made possible by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.“I know from experience these grants are hard to obtain, you are competing with the best artists from across the country”.
Andrew Reed Miller, who cut his teeth touring with such ensembles as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet orchestra, the Canadian Opera Company and the National Arts Centre Orchestra has been a quiet force in the NB music scene for 20 years. He has premiered many new works and performed many Canadian venues.
André Cormier, a resident of Moncton, has had work presented in Canada, the US, Europe and New Zealand. In 2008 he launched Éditions musique SISYPHE a music publishing house focusing on experimental music.
