    Symposium “Composers – an endangered species ?” 
    This past fall, we sent around a survey in the new music community about questions they would like to ask about the changing context of musical creation in the light of cultural globalisation, artificial intelligence, gender studies etc. We also asked them who in Montréal should give short impulse statements. 60 respondents filled out this survey and thus curated this event. 12 crowd-selected speakers will respond to the 9 most desired questions. This symposium in the context of Montréal Nouvelles Musiques was initiated by Sandeep Bhagwati and co-directed by Patrick St. Denis, Charles Antoine Frechette, Danick Trottier and Jonathan Goldman.

    “ville étrange”

    Date: June 15, 2019

    Location: Oldenburg, Morgenland Festival

    June 15, 2019 Oldenburg, Morgenland Festival
    “ville étrange”
    in 2014, together with Kiya Tabassian, I co-founded the trans-traditional ensemble “Sound of Montréal”  as an experimental side project of his “Ensemble Constantinople”. Over years of research-creation, we developed a project that took Claude Viviers composition “…et je reverrai cette ville étrange…”(1981) and transformed, expanded and interpreted it through the lens of a trans-traditional ensemble. After several successful tours in Canada, this concert kicks off our first tour in Europe. It also marks the launch of the album “ville étrange”, an edited live-recording of this project in Montréal, on dreyer gaido records.
      • Nota Bene: By June, I also hope to see the release of my next album “Atish-e-Zaban”, one hour of music for 6 voices a cappella on poems by Faiz Ahmad Faiz, sung by the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart and slated to appear on mode records New York. This album gone through a long legal and administrative process since the NVS recorded the piece in 2014 – and I hope to finally hold the album in my hands this coming year- with a wonderful cover by miniature artist Muhammad Imran Qureshi.
