Spectrum Music Presents: Into the Deep Blue

  • Alliance Francaise 24 Spadina Road Toronto, ON, M5R 2S7 Canada (map)

New works composed for the Shaw Street Collective.

What lies in the murky depths below? The turn of the 20th century brought with it a fascination with one of the Earth’s deepest, darkest mysteries: the ocean. Scientists have better maps of Mars than they do of the ocean that covers 70% of our planet, and composers from Debussy to Herbie Hancock have found inspiration from what lies in and below the deep blue seas. The Spectrum composers create new pieces based on some of Earth’s most out-of-this-world species, a myriad of unusual geographic features, and even lost historical artifacts.

This newly-minted music will be brought to life by the eclectic Shaw Street Collective. A pre-concert chat discussing recent advancements in the field provide an introduction into this immersive event.
