During a three-day residency at ArtSpring, The Blue Moss Ensemble and friends will polish a special music programme and then will premiere it to a Salt Spring audience on June 21st at ArtSpring.
The Blue Moss Ensemble, a composer cooperative rooted in Victoria and Toronto, seeks the peculiar or wonderful, working to inhabit strange new musical worlds through cultivating a slowly-expanding community of like-minded artists. Their most recent project, mosse-elva, bridges the experimental music communities of Canada and the UK by bringing together the Blue Moss Ensemble (Anna Höstman, Emilie LeBel, and Mitch Renaud) and UK composers John Lely and Scott Mc Laughlin with violinist Mira Benjamin.
*The Blue Moss Ensemble also holds a free Symbiotic Creative Practice Workshop on Monday, June 20th from 4:00 to 5:15 pm in the theatre.
