TRANSIENT CANVAS [February 21, 2019]

Transient CanvasHailed as “superb” by the Boston Globe, and “nothing short of fabulous” by the Boston Musical Intelligencer, TRANSIENT CANVAS is elevating the roles of the bass clarinet and marimba by commissioning new repertoire that expands their limits and explores their seemingly limitless tapestries of color. Since 2011, the duo has commissioned over 75 works by emerging and well established composers from all over the United States. In August 2017, TC released their first album Sift on New Focus Recordings to rave reviews. KLANG New Music called it “one of the more refreshing things I’ve heard in recent years.”

Dedicated to spreading their repertoire, Transient Canvas has performed across the United States and Europe. They have been presented by the Alba Music Festival (Alba, Italy), SoundNOW Festival (Atlanta, GA), Music at the Forefront (Bowling Green, OH), New Music Gathering (San Francisco, CA), Moore Hall Recital Series (Pembroke, NC), New Music at the Short North Stage (Columbus, OH), Music on Madison (Evanston, IL), New Music Nights at Spectrum (New York, NY), Clocks in Motion (Madison, WI), First Fridays (Providence, RI), New Hampshire Music Festival (Plymouth, NH), Society of Composers, Inc.(Orono, ME), New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (New York, NY), Guerrilla Composers Guild (San Francisco, CA), and the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (Indianapolis, IN). In Boston, they are regularly featured on the Equilibrium, Original Gravity, Open Sound, and New Gallery concert series.
