Discover the essential aesthetics that have come to define Vancouver musically.
Through intercultural music and free improv, through the World Soundscape Project and a musical fascination with beauty, Vancouver’s leading composers, performers and musical thinkers have shown us how the local is universal.
Curated by Music on Main’s David Pay, Terminal City Soundscape focuses our ears–and eyes–on this idea. You’ll experience “All,” an immersive, interdisciplinary collaboration between award-winning filmmaker Mina Shum and Vancouver’s Standing Wave Ensemble, and hear Jocelyn Morlock’s transcendent “Exaudi” with musica intima and cellist Ariel Barnes. Other works include Hildegard Westerkamp’s “Kits Beach Soundwalk” and Barry Truax’s “Riverrun” alongside music by Veda Hille, Bramwell Tovey, Rodney Sharman, and many others.
“Music on Main … provides western Canada with one of the finest windows onto the post-classical scene” – Gramophone Magazine
Music on Main has become a mainstay in the artistic fabric of Vancouver, presenting concert music with a strong focus on music of our time, and featuring excellent musicians in innovative concert formats. Called “one of the city’s most valuable alt-high-culture providers” (Vancouver Magazine), Music on Main brought sold-out runs of Steve Reich’s Drumming to the PuSh Festival in 2009, and So Percussion in 2010. Their concerts have been highlighted as “best of season” events by The Globe and Mail and Georgia Straight. musiconmain.ca
