1000 Times This - Standing Wave
Is music rational? Is music intrinsically spiritual?

It's Fact vs. Faith, Science vs. Sacredness, Sophistry vs. Sacristy, in Standing Wave's upcoming concert, 1000 Times This, at Pyatt Hall on April 13, 2014.  

In one corner, music of the rational Michael Oesterle, the science-fictional Nicole Lizée, and the nihilistical Iannis Xenakis; in the other corner, music of the heavenly Arvo Pärt, the transcendental John Coltrane, and the upward-gazing Joel Balzun.  

Come and experience the knock-down, debate-provoking contemporary chamber music event of the season! Featuring world premieres of Emmy Noether, by internationally acclaimed Canadian composer Michael Oesterle, and On Tablets of Human Hearts, by up-and-coming Canadian composer Joel Balzun; as well as a new arrangement of John Coltrane's music entitled Feuilles de Son, by Vancouver's own master-improviser, clarinettist, and composer, and Standing Wave founding member, François Houle. Also featured will be Iannis Xenakis' Plektó, Arvo Pärt's Fratres, and Nicole Lizée's Sculptress.

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.

"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, The Georgia Straight
