Open Space brings licorice show

Clarinettist Krista Martynes, and composers Cassandra Miller and Wolf Edwards will descend upon Open Space

Clarinettist Krista Martynes, and composers Cassandra Miller and Wolf Edwards will descend upon Open Space in a short residency from June 28 to 30 with some Electric Licorice.

The clarinet, affectionately called the licorice stick in some circles, will come alive as its range and colours are expanded through the use of electronics and computer processing.

During this short residency Miller will work with Martynes on the creation of a new work. Edwards’ newest work will be rehearsed for its premiere on Saturday night, the concert that will close the week showcasing the culmination of this three-day stretch.

The concert will also include works by  David Lang, Zosha di Castri, Karlheinz Essl, and Steve Reich as well as a premier of Adam Basanta’s “Feelings I’m Too Tired For”.

Rub shoulders with Martynes, Miller, and Edwards while learning a thing or two about everyone’s favourite licorice stick on Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, June 29 at 7 p.m., Composers Miller and Edwards will participate in a round table discussion about the challenges and rewards of writing for the clarinet with electronics and show highlights from their past compositions.

 

On Saturday, June 30 at 7 p.m., Martynes will provide insights to the evening’s program from a performer’s point of view before the main event at 8 p.m.
