Transient Canvas (Amy Advocat, bass clarinet & Matt Sharrock, marimba) presents Looking Forward, Looking Back, a program of new music that looks to the future by invoking the past. Music by David Coll, Jonathan Bailey Holland, Clifton Ingram, Beau Kenyon, Emily Koh, and Adam Roberts.
Praised by the Boston Globe as “superb”, and “nothing short of fabulous” by the Boston Musical Intelligencer, Transient Canvas is elevating the roles of bass clarinet and marimba by commissioning new repertoire that expands the limits of their instruments and explores the seemingly limitless tapestry of color and character of their combination. TC has commissioned over 75 works by emerging and well established composers from all over the United States, and has toured extensively in the U.S. and Europe. In August 2017, TC released their first album Sift on New Focus Recordings to rave reviews. KLANG New Music called it “one of the more refreshing things I’ve heard in recent years.”
