Standing Wave - Acousmatic
Standing Wave presents Acousmatic, a concert of electro-acoustic music that will challenge, thrill, mesmerize, and surprise! The mysterious territory that lies between pre-organized sound and music...the common ground shared by acoustic and electronic music...these will be explored.  

The concert will feature the world premieres of Vancouver native James OCallaghans subject / object, and Giorgio Magnanensis TDU XXI. Standing Wave will also perform Laurie Andersons seminal electro-pop classic O Superman, arranged by Alfredo Santa Ana, Gordon Fitzells Evanescence, as well as the Canadian premiere of Four Thousand Holes by John Luther Adams. The ensemble will be joined by special guests, Giorgio Magnanensi, Stefan Smulovitz and the legendary Veda Hille!

Standing Wave is an ensemble of six exceptional musicians who perform contemporary music with virtuosity and style, cutting across musical landscapes with sharpness, wit and intelligence. The ensemble is equally comfortable performing complex chamber compositions, new music and works with electro-acoustics. Their adventurous programming and dynamic performances combine to capture listeners hearts and imaginations, placing Standing Wave at the forefront of Canada's new music scene.

Since its formation in 1991, Standing Wave has presented an annual season of concerts in Vancouver, has toured across Canada, collaborated with Kokoro Dance, Ballet BC, Redshift Society, Rumble Theatre, and Vancouver New Music Society. They've been featured as part of the VSO's New Music Festival, PuSh Festival, Vancouver New Music Festival, MusicFest Vancouver, the Victoria Symphony's New Currents Festival, Vancouver Pro Musica's Sonic Boom, and the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Standing Waves third album, Liquid States, was nominated for two Western Canadian Music Awards in 2013.

"It's no cinch to accurately reproduce this dizzying beauty, but Vancouver's most accomplished contemporary chamber music group did that, without even breaking a sweat."  - Alex Varty (Georgia Straight)
