Arnold Dreyblatt’s Orchestra of Excited Strings

April 11 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Second generation minimalist composer Arnold Dreyblatt returns to Toronto for the first time in over 15 years for a collaboration with local musicians forming an Orchestra of Excited Strings.

Dreyblatt (compositions, upright bass), will work with cellist Amahl Arulanandam (Thin Edge New Music Collective, VC2), violinist Laura C. Bates (Volur), and percussionist Brandon Valdivia (Mas Aya, Not The Wind, Not The Flag) to present his transcendental and ecstatic music for "Orchestra of Excited Strings".

A maverick of contemporary composition with one foot in the media art world, Dreyblatt's unique tuning systems and performance techniques flow from minimalist roots but draw a kinship with avant-rock tendencies.

Curated by Tad Michalak.
