sony headphones beats Concert to celebrate poetry

The 5 Penny New Music Concerts, in collaboration with the bureau des affaires francophones de l Laurentienne, is sponsoring the concert, Surface and Underground. at the Theatre du Nouvel Ontario in Sudbury. Tickets are $23 for adults and $17 for students, and are available at the TNO ticket office.

The featured artists include Sudbury poet Thierry Dimanche, Acadian poet Daniel H. Dugas, Nova Scotian poet Valerie LeBlanc, visual artist Patrick Harrop, and Sudbury composer Robert Lemay, as well as the Proteus Saxophone Quartet from Calgary.

The evening will be in two parts. The first is devoted to Dimanche and Lemay whose musical poetic project, Two Kilometres Underground, will be premiered. The collaboration reflects their fascination with SNOLAB research on dark matter and elementary nuclear particles.

In July 2016, Dimanche and Lemay paid their first visit to the world famous underground facility. Dimanche then wrote a set of texts that formed the basis of Lemay musical work, Fragments noirs (Dark Fragments). Scored for two saxophones, the piece consists of nine musical commentaries on poetical extracts. Fragments noirs was recorded last March in the SNOLAB large experimental space dubbed the Cryopit.

The evening second part will highlight LeBlanc and Dugas, whose poem, Afflux, also inspired a work by Lemay. The Proteus Quartet will perform the piece along other French and Canadian compositions that reflect the poetic theme.

The concert will conclude with Lemay No Limits, a work for baritone saxophone inspired by Vous, a poetry collection by the eminent Acadian poet, Hermenegilde Chiasson.

Harrop visual images will punctuate the poetry and the music throughout, with a variety of digital transformations projected onscreen by computer.

A reception will follow the event with the launch of two new books: Probleme trente by Dimanche and Everglades by Dugas and LeBlanc, both published by Editions Prise de Parole, a Sudbury publishing house.

Funding for Surface and Underground is made possible by the Ontario Arts Council, Editions Prise de Parole, SOCAN Foundation, and Laurentian University.
