Redshift Music Society, a Vancouver-based nonprofit dedicated to bringing new Canadian music to a broader public, has just digitally released a new album, Redshift X, commemorating their ten years of existence. I’m pleased to report that I’m featured on no less than six of the ten tracks, which are taken from previous and upcoming Redshift CD releases, including Delicate Fires (my 2007 CD with Rachel Iwaasa, as our duo, Tiresias), Different Stones (my multitrack flute album from 2008) and Trade Winds/Halos of the Moon with Tiresias, which will be released later this year. Redshift X features music by Canadian composers Jocelyn Morlock, Jordan Nobles, James Beckwith Maxwell, Jeffrey Ryan, Christopher Kovarik, Rodney Sharman, Jennifer Butler, Emily Doolittle, and Marci Rabe, and even includes a previously unreleased studio recording I made in 2009 of André Cormier‘s ten-flute piece, tous facteurs étant égaux #2.
This album is available for FREE download: go to the Redshift home page for more info, or simply click here to download all ten tracks. This is a wonderful tribute to Canadian composers and performers, and a terrific way to celebrate the tenth anniversary of an organization that is very, very dear to me. Happy Birthday, Redshift!
