    Weins, Heward, Bull & Vespaziani is an electro-acoustic quartet uniting improvisors from Montreal, Halifax, and Toronto. These four players present some very original approaches to their instruments and a highly imaginative feel for improvisation.

    Paralune est une réunion momentanée au su et vu de la lune, une rencontre rapprochée entre des objets sonores improvisés. Un mouvement à quatre songes décelable par les lueurs de la lumière qu’il réfléchi.

    At the outskirts of the moon, a brief intimate meeting between objects of sonic nature. A quartet of dreams defining a movement detectable by the unique glittering of the light it reflects.

Le Duo Goldstein-Wiens

Malcolm Goldstein est l’un des quelques violonistes à avoir partagé la scène avec John Cage et James Brown. Membre important du collectif Judson Dance Theatre, Malcolm est l’un des improvisateurs les plus originaux et les plus profonds au monde. Avec son instrument, il a créé un son et une voix qui n’ont pas d’équivalent [dans le monde].

Il a improvisé avec le joueur de guitare préparée Rainer Wiens pendant deux décennies et ils ont développé un lien qui doit être vu pour être cru. Audacieux, ancré, organique, puissant, ludique et surprenant.
