My Backyard, Somewhere

3. Arkitek Collectif9

Returning to the Playhouse after a hit performance in 2016, cutting-edge classical string band Collectif9 has joined forces with Architek Percussion, a Quebecbased experimental chamber quartet, for a new presentaion called My Backyard, Somewhere. Based on a bilingual poem commissioned from Montreal’s Kaie Kellough, the work reflects on Canadians’ malleable sense of belonging in a vast country, exploring boundaries, location, and a sense of belonging of people: our displaced sense of home, travelling to and from places that have home-like meaning to us, and the elements of communication (interpretation and misinterpretation) between people and places. The music is a journey through the styles of five multidisciplinary and multi-genre composers from across Canada. Whether with lyricism, groove, exploratory textures, or pop culture technologies, the voices of the composers communicate with each other, with the performers, and with the audience throughout the concert experience.
