Echo: Memories of the World
Created by the Gryphon Trio, in collaboration with Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists from Canada and Norway, the new multimedia presentation explores the flow of knowledge and cultural treasures through the generations. As we face the dangers of climate, conflict, and environmental degradation, the work draws on resilient stories from Canada, Norway, Australia, and Mali, combining live and pre-recorded music, spoken word, and film.
Music by Indigenous composers Andrew Balfour and Eliot Britton, and European composers Victoria, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Henrik Hellsteinius. Words by Alison Mackay, Renellta Arluk, and Sámi poet Rawdna Carita Eira.Video by Dylan Toombs. Performed by mezzo soprano Marion Newman, and the Gryphon Trio. With pre-recorded performances by Nordic Voices vocal ensemble from Norway and Malian kora player Diely Mori Tounkara.
