Presented as part of La Semaine du Neuf by Le Vivier, Ice is an immersive sound and mixed media experience, performed by Paramirabo, that explores the silent formation of icicles.
Ice is an audiovisual installation, developed in collaboration with Fareena Chanda (artist) and Stephen Morris (physicist), inspired by the silent formation of icicles, seeking to capture the beauty and violence of the water-to-ice transformation process. The musical composition, led by Cristian Gort (conductor), evolves as the visual textures change, engaging the body and mind in an experience where the seemingly ordinary natural phenomenon is magnified in a haptic manner.
... and the Flesh made Word is a textural exploration where the sonic material is designed in a more tactile than discursive manner, using the formant structures of French vowels as a harmonic model.
Clamors of Being, the second part of the diptych, deepens the writing by closely connecting to matter, considering it as a cosmic movement, personified yet animated by a vital breath.
This encounter promises a unique audiovisual exploration between music, nature, and technology, where inner and outer worlds come together to resonate and vibrate through their collisions.
The intrepid and dedicated members of Ensemble Paramirabo come together as a single voice to perform contemporary music, showcase emerging Canadian composers, and expand the boundaries of the traditional concert experience. As a creator of innovative events, the group provides young composers with a venue for refining their trademark within Montreal’s vibrant new music scene and act as a springboard for exposure abroad. The ensemble’s flutist, Jeffrey Stonehouse, has been the group’s artistic director since its founding.
