Sarah Belle Reid & Ryan Gaston with Michael Palumbo & Adam Tindale

Saturday, April 20
292 Brunswick Ave.
PWYCA $10, $15, $20 P

Sarah Belle Reid is a performer-composer who plays trumpet, modular synthesizer, and an ever-growing collection of handcrafted electronic instruments. Her unique musical voice explores the intersections between contemporary classical music, experimental electronics, sound installation, noise music, and improvisation. In addition to her performance and compositional work, Reid runs an online music education company dedicated to teaching sound synthesis and electroacoustic composition to professional and hobbyist musicians. She has mentored thousands of musicians from around the world in her online programs, and is a frequent guest lecturer at notable institutions in the US and Canada including Stanford University, University of Victoria, California Institute of the Arts, New York University (NYU), among others.


Ryan Gaston (b. 1990) is a performer/composer, instrument designer, and writer who makes devices and music that combine sonic elements of noise, free improvisation, and experimental electroacoustic music. Gaston’s creative work explores temporal perception—memory, preconception, time travel, and the concept of the “present”—by using chaotic, unpredictable electronic structures as the conceptual basis for both electronic instruments and musical compositions. Gaston holds an MFA in Music Composition and Experimental Sound Practices from the California Institute of the Arts (2016) as well as a BA in Music Composition from Hendrix College (2012).


Michael Palumbo (MA, BFA) is a musician, teacher, and concert promoter. His approach to microsound on modular synthesis involves filter pinging, delays, and stereo panning, and he improvises often as a soloist and in ensembles. Michael is a PhD candidate in Digital Media at York University, and is working on Mischmasch, a virtual reality environment for ensemble electroacoustic music improvisation. He produces Exit Points, a monthly series that presents free-improvised music in concerts that are thoroughly well-produced and attended, and is funded by the Toronto Arts Council. Michael also runs the Exit Points record label, which releases albums recorded live at the concerts and subsequently mixed in Dolby Atmos.
