Discover the essential aesthetics that have come to define Vancouver musically.
Through intercultural music and free improv, through the World Soundscape Project and a musical fascination with beauty, Vancouver leaders composers, performers and musical thinkers have shown us how the local is universal.
Curated by Music on Main’s David Pay, Terminal City Soundscape focuses our ears — and eyes — on this idea.
You’ll experience All, an immersive, interdisciplinary collaboration between award-winning filmmaker Mina Shum and Vancouver’s Standing Wave Ensemble, and hear Jocelyn Morlock’s transcendent Exaudi with vocal ensemble musica intima and cellist Ariel Barnes.
Other works include Hildegard Westerkamp’s Kits Beach Soundwalk and Barry Truax’s Riverrun alongside music by Veda Hille, Bramwell Tovey, Rodney Sharman, and many others.
Presented with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival and CABINET Interdisciplinary Collaborations, and featuring salons at Gene Coffeebar on Main Street.
