Ron Samworth & Kate Hammet-Vaughan: Residency

The following text is taken from Front Magazine, vol. VII, no. 3, p. 12, January/February 1996:

Throughout the month of February, local musicians Ron Samworth (NOW Orchestra, Talking Pictures) and Kate Hammet-Vaughan (NOW Orchestra, Garbo’s Hat), will be resident artists at the Front, developing a new work, three corner square.

Ron and Kate will be collaborating on the exploration of new structures for composition and improvisation with writer/dancer Julie Carr in New York, and musician Tom Walsh in Toronto, by means of electronic conferencing. Compositional elements include spoken and musical settings of text, choreographed movement and instrumental musical interludes. A performance of three corner square is being considered for Sound Symposium 1996, in Newfoundland.
