Jason Sharp

presents The Turning Centre Of A Still World with live visuals by Guillaume Vallée

The Turning Centre Of A Still World is Sharp’s first purely solo record and his most lucid, poignant, integral work to date. Following two acclaimed albums composed around particular collaborators and guest players, Sharp conceived his third as an interplay strictly bounded by his own body, his acoustic instrument, and his evolving bespoke electronic system. The Turning Centre... is a singular sonic exploration of human-machine calibration, interaction, expression and biofeedback.

Sam Shalabi

Sam Shalabi is an Egyptian- Canadian composer and improviser, living in Montreal, Quebec. Beginning in punk rock in the late 70s, his work has evolved into a fusion of experimental Arabic Music that incorporates traditional Arabic, shaabi, noise, classical, text, free improvisation, electronics and jazz. He has released 6 solo albums, 6 albums with Shalabi Effect, a free improvisation quartet that bridges western psychedelic music and Arabic Maquam, and 4 albums with Land Of Kush (an experimental 30 member orchestra, for which he composes). He has appeared on over 60 albums and toured Europe, North America and North Africa.

Symphony for Cutlery
Projections by Anthony Piazza

Annie-Claude Deschênes lives and works in Montreal. She is a visual artist, singer, keyboardist and singer-songwriter with the music group Duchess Says (Bonsound, Alien8 Recordings, Slovenly Recordings) and the band PYPY (Slovenly Recordings). She also studied sound design at Musitechnic and visual arts at Université Laval. The visual and performative aspect is a dominant part of all her projects. On stage, she is in a trance, she experiments and has fun making music visually palpable. She interacts with the audience, animates the space by improvising with the available objects and tries to distort the conventions of the show in an effort to capture the imagination of the crowd.
