Sound Atlas New Music Festival – DAY 3

June 25, 2023 3:00 pm
SAF is an experimental adventure in sound, living always in the new and the now. In partnership with the University of Calgary School of Creative and Performing Arts and Contemporary Calgary, SAF highlights include sonic deep dives with Latitude 49 and expert-new-music folks from across North America, world premieres, sound installations, interdisciplinary art, genre-bending curiosities, community outreach and engagement, youth education and more.

The inaugural Sound Atlas Festival (SAF) makes its debut in Calgary, Alberta on June 23-25, 2023. Land’s End Ensemble will be performing twice during the festival with the second performance on June 25.

Sound Atlas describes Day 3:

REVOLUTION SONGS is a duality of song-cycles, each that alters old forms to a progressive present. Juno-nominated Land’s End Ensemble joins forces with conductor Karl Hirzer and megastar soprano Laura Hynes to present John Corigliano’s metamorphic Mr. Tambourine Man on seven poems by Bob Dylan. The Sound Atlas Festival’s inaugural journey concludes with the Canadian premiere of Don’t say a word, a set of feminist rager-lullabies for a new era, composed and performed by Avant-folk vocalist and featured composer Annika Socolofsky and featured ensemble, Latitude 49. An album release party and end-of-festival celebration will immediately follow in the Atrium.
