Tribute to Claude Vivier

Quasar pays tribute, for one evening, to the Quebec composer of contemporary music, Claude Vivier, who died 40 years ago.
This concert in homage to Claude Vivier, elaborated in collaboration with the composer Yassen Vodenitcharov, includes an original work by Claude Vivier, two works by Vivier's masters (Paul Méfano and Gilles Tremblay), as well as two premieres, one by Yassen Vodenitcharov and one by Florence Tremblay.
Presented in codiffusion with Groupe Le Vivier.
9th Electro Series
April 19th 2024 - 7:30 PM
MMR / CIRMMT
Quasar continues its exploration of the world of sound in the digital age, presenting four creations for saxophones and electroacoustic audio and video devices. Four composers at the heart of contemporary music have teamed up with Quasar's musicians to explore the many fascinating possibilities offered by the encounter between acoustic instruments and technology. Real-time sound processing, electronic soundtracks, video, spatialization and virtual identities are just some of the ways they explore the world of sound, offering audiences an immersive, sensitive and powerful experience. A not-to-be-missed event on the new music scene.
A week-long residency is at the heart of the series' artistic approach. It's a place for research, experimentation and exchange, culminating in a workshop open to the general public. Workshops during the week are open on request to the CIRMMT and McGill communities.
Since 2013, the Series has been co-produced with CIRMMT, optimizing the conditions for research and creation. The series has won two Opus awards from the Conseil québécois de la musique.
For this edition, Quasar joins forces with Ensemble FlashBack for a two-part Electro Series, one in Montreal and the other in Perpignan, where a visual component will be added to the constantly evolving project.
Concert presented in co-production with Flashback and CIRMMT, and co-broadcast with Le Vivier.
