NEW MUSIC MIAMI ISCM FESTIVAL 2022
March 30, 2022: Transient Canvas
The Wolfsonian – FIU
7:00PM: Pre-Concert Talk
7:30PM – 9:00PM: Live Performance
Boston-based contemporary bass clarinet and percussion duo, Transient Canvas, performs music by composers from the U.S. and abroad. This duo is on a mission to revolutionize the modern concert experience! Since 2011, their innovative performances have been praised as “superb” by the Boston Globe and “disarming” by Cleveland Classical, with the San Francisco Chronicle lauding “the versatile imagination they both display and inspire in others.” Bass clarinetist Amy Advocat and marimbist Matt Sharrock relish the creative potential of working with living composers, having amassed a varied repertoire of over 80 commissioned works in addition to working with hundreds of student composers from all over the world. They have released three albums on New Focus Recordings: Right now, in a second, named a top-ten local album of 2020 by The Boston Globe; Wired, “a must-add to any new music lover’s library” according to I Care If You Listen; and Sift, which KLANG New Music called “one of the more refreshing things I’ve heard in recent years."
