For the second consecutive year Border Crossings is publishing a special issue focussing on the WSO’s Winnipeg New Music Festival.
The issue, “Son et Lumiere” features interviews with four of the guest artists appearing at this year’s 25th Anniversary Festival: David Lang, Barbara Monk Feldman, Joan Tower and Michael Snow.
On Wednesday, January 27th Border Crossings is presenting “Snow in Vienna,” a film directed by Laurie Kwasnik, followed by an onstage conversation with Michael Snow and Robert Enright.
Border Crossings will launch “Son et Lumiere,” issue no 136, at the Concert Hall on Wednesday, January 27, 2016.
Participants will be introduced to a novel method of creating music and the process of creativity that can quickly and effectively change how we create music for self-expression. A simple and powerful method that can benefit novice and experienced creators of music. Participants should be prepared to share and/or perform their original work for critical feedback. Lead sheets are welcome but not necessary. A piano will be provided – otherwise participants should bring their own instrument if so desired.

As part of the Winnipeg New Music Festival, Plug In presents the following distinct projects.
Moon Rehearsal Tape by Aston Coles and Irene Bindi will take the form of an intricate hand-made sound system built by the artists in the Plug In ICA galleries. The functional sculpture will serve the ground for a series of performances.
A site-specific artwork by Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline will be presented throughout Centennial Concert Hall. This installation will display an arrangement of stenciled tile paintings in a sprawling, wallpaper-like mural.
