Lisa Cay Miller — Music from Vancouver

“… some of the most intricate and beautiful music that can be heard in Vancouver today.” —The Georgia Straight, October 2012

Vancouver pianist and composer Lisa Cay Miller presents her composition Water Carrier, a graphic score for 12 musicians-improvisers. This new work will be premiered by the Ensemble SuperMusique during the concert Accords intuitifs at the Amphithéâtre of Le Gesù, on April 6, 2017. During her stay in Montréal, Lisa will share her creative process and musical passion at two other pre-concert events.

Participants in the workshop will create a condensed version of the piece Water Carrier under the direction of the composer.

This workshop is presented in collaboration with Studio d’improvisation de Montréal.
