Forest Collective invite you to join them on a one-of-a-kind journey through unconventional notation.
The centrepoint of this program features a newly commissioned work, Skin Deep, composed by ensemble cellist and composer Nikki Edgar. This new work uses a graphic score comprised of beautiful colours, shapes and lines. This incredible work, exploring the body and longevity of musical ideas and sounds promises to delve below the surface and open our minds to new ways of experiencing music through graphic score and unconventional sounds.
This performance also features new commissioned work by Chris Rechner, who is welcomed back to the Forest Collective family with his musical composition, and USA composer Julie Herndon, whose electroacoustic work has been described as "striking" and "blended to inhabit a surprisingly expressive space" (San Francisco Classical Voice).
Skin Deep is proudly part of the Abbotsford Convent Foundation's Convent Live program.
