Granville Street between Dunsmuir and Nelson
Contempory music will be outed in a series of guerilla music events on the Granville Mall. ‘Street Music’ will investigate the stigma of high art music making in the streets by juxtaposing so called èserious music’ against a backdrop of street buskers and downtown business. Artifacts and video imagery from the events will be collected for an upcoming exhibition at the Western Front, that explores site-specific performance.
