Allison Cameron Mini-Festival

Nov. 23 & 24, The Array Space, 155 Walnut Ave ($20/PWYC).

Allison Cameron is one of the most important composers of experimental music working in Canada today.  Her music has had an international presence for years, which has grown due to greater recognition by the media here and abroad. She is an acclaimed improviser performing with a highly personal, idiosyncratic collection of what she calls amplified objects. Arraymusic will present work spanning a range of Cameron’s activities across two consecutive concerts:

CONCERT 1: This concert will feature a major new work by Cameron commissioned by Array, written for our ensemble combined with two members of Allison’s improvising trio c_RL—Germaine Liu on percussion and Nicole Rampersaud on trumpet—as well as earlier pieces by Allison for open forces.

CONCERT 2: This concert will feature Allison solo as well as c_RL—the whole trio.

Lerner/Rampersaud: Brass Knuckle Sandwich

Very excited and honoured to be performing with Marilyn Lerner at the 25th edition of the Guelph Jazz Festival!

Pianist Marilyn Lerner is a friend of the Guelph Jazz Festival almost since its inception, having presented her Cuban-jazz inspired Birds Are Returning project back in 1997, with frequent visits including, notably, with her long-time collaborator Lori Freedman as Queen Mab. She is a remarkable improvising pianist, with an uncommon precision and care in pitch selection that contribute to an innate sense of structure, order, and development in her playing. Nicole Rampersaud is simply an extraordinary trumpet player, and without a doubt – as they say – a talent deserving wider recognition. With amazing facility and, especially, control of techniques that extend her instrument’s timbral range in astonishing ways, Rampersaud methodically constructs fascinating forms through improvisation. She has a thoroughly wrought solo practice, and plays regularly with c_RL (with Germaine Liu and Allison Cameron) and Brodie West’s Eucalyptus. Brass Knuckle Sandwich is a meeting of two of Canada’s finest improvisers, a simpatico pairing of imaginative, daring, patient, and generous music-makers.
