Raging Against the Machine
Thin Edge New Music Collective and
"Raging Against the Machine is a collaborative project featuring Montreal-based Ensemble Paramirabo and Toronto-based Thin Edge New Music Collective. Inspired by the driving rhythmic nature of Steve Reich's Pulitzer prize winning Double Sextet and Louis Andriessen's Workers Union, this project was the impetus behind the creation of three fascinating Canadian works: Hum for double sextet by Brian Harman (Toronto/Montreal), Fog by Anna Hostman (Toronto) and Le Sel de la Terre by Patrick Giguere (Montreal). RATM aims to establish meaningful connections between artists with distinct geographical, cultural and linguistic identities." - Liner notes
