We would be honoured to have you join us for the launch of our newest CD, Bathymetric Terrains!
Saturday, February 15th @ 2 PM. The Music Room, 6181 Lady Hammond Rd, Halifax. Free admission.
Bathymetric Terrains has been in the works for the past year. We’re thrilled to be able to share this new work with you. We’ll be performing the work and CD’s will be available for sale after the show. There will also be a small reception.
No need to RSVP. But it would be good to get a sense of numbers as the Music Room is not that large. If you can, please let us know if you’re thinking of joining us.
“East Coast Music Award winning ensemble, Charke-Cormier Duo’s sophomore album entitled ‘Bathymetric Terrains’ is a true departure from the conventional flute and guitar duo. JUNO award winning composer and flutist Derek Charke writes “Bathymetric Terrains muses on the ecology of oceans and tidal bays. Bathymetry is the measurement of water depths. This is a work about underwater terrains. It is a work which contemplates the fragile nature of underwater topographies and ecosystems. I see the Minas Basin and Bay of Fundy from my house in Nova Scotia. The tides are dramatic. When the tide is out the seabed is exposed. The various layers of topography reveal themselves twice a day. For a while now I’ve wanted to compose something about these hidden landscapes. The composition includes multiple flute, guitar, and voice parts. The solo parts are performed live while the backing tracks, processing, and soundscapes are projected through speakers. The work is technically challenging and exciting to perform.” Combining acoustic, vocal and electroacoustic elements, Bathymetric Terrains is an exciting journey beneath the ocean to discover new landscapes and sounds you’ve never heard before.”
Hope to see you there!
All the best,
Derek & Eugene
