Listening Party

@ 7:00pm

7-9pm Feel free to stop by at any time


With so much new music released on a daily basis, where does one begin? Western Front’s Listening Parties provide an answer to this question. For an evening, local artists are invited to share and discuss music from the past two years that they’ve heard and found inspiring. For this Listening Party Western Front’s New Music Curator, Aram Bajakian, will be joined by Sabrina Schroeder and T. Patrick Carrabré.

Composer Sabrina Schroeder is an Assistant Professor at Simon Fraser University’s School for Contemporary Art and the current Composer-in-Residence at Music On Main. Her music is written for instrumental ensembles and often uses live processing and self-made mechanical instruments to create immersive spaces in which audiences feel sounds as much as they hear them.

T. Patrick Carrabré (newly appointed Director of the School of Music at the University of British Columbia) spent six years as the Composer-in-Residence for the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and as co-curator of their New Music Festival. Carrabré also served two seasons as the weekend host of CBC Radio 2’s contemporary music show, The Signal.

Presented with support from the Hamber Foundation.
