Kontraklang presents current positions from Canada’s contemporary music scene. Similar to Berlin, the scene in Montréal is also characterised by a high international fluctuation and a great diversity of styles that knows no fear of contact.
On the first evening, clarinettist Lori Freedman will fuse a selection of Berlin improvisers live for the first time in her project Being Five. Founded in 2019 on the initiative of KONTRAKLANG, the ensemble has developed a unique approach to collective improvisation over the last few months (and under conditions made more difficult by the pandemic), which will now be presented for the first time. The evening will end with a DJ set by Plunderphonics legend John Oswald.
Being Five are:
Lori Freedman – Klarinette
Axel Dörner – Trompete
Andrea Parkins – Elektronik, Akkordeon
Yorgos Dimitriadis – Schlagzeug
Christopher Williams – Kontrabass
John Oswald – DJ-Set
Kontraklang – Montréal and beyond
