Signature Event: Espacées

The Dalhousie Wind Ensemble is proud to present this exploration of sound and space with the help of the Traves Performance Excellence Fund:


Dalhousie Wind Ensemble
Directed by Jacob Caines

Before his death, Edgar Varèse began planning a work that would tour the audience through a variety of spaces, soundscapes, and moods. Although the work was never completed, the idea has persisted that music and sound can happen in simultaneous space and time. Espacées is a concert designed to guide the audience through different spaces to experience a variety of art forms that coexist, fluctuate, and morph into a full evening of sensory realities. With a new commission by James Ervin (trumpeter and performer with Walk off the Earth), spoken word poetry by El Jones, and music by Philip Glass, you will travel through different rooms to hear music and poetry paired with film and theatre.
