LUTALICA PROJECT: An Ongoing Exploration of Pacific Rim Music

LUTALICA (n. The part of one’s identity that doesn’t fit into categories. From the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows)

This Friday I’m continuing my exploration of of Pacific Rim composers, music, and cultural identity with the LUTALICA PROJECT, presented by Redshift Music Society and The Little Chamber Music Series That Could. Just over a year ago I asked composers from around the Pacific Rim to send me their works for solo flute — I was curious to see what commonalities might exist outside of what has essentially been a very Western European tradition. On Friday I’ll be presenting music by Etsuko Hori (Japan), Emilie LeBel (Canada), Hope Lee (Taiwan/Canada), Eve de Castro-Robinson (New Zealand), Jeffrey Ryan, as well as an old favourite of mine, “Air” by Toru Takemitsu. The concert takes place in the beautiful acoustics of Celebration Hall at Mountain View Cemetery (5455 Fraser Street, Vancouver) at 8pm. And, in the traditions of both Little Chamber and Redshift, the event is absolutely free to attend.
