Fiery encounter IV

Moderator: Michel Gonneville
Guests: Jose Evangelista, André Hamel, Terri Hron, Jean-François Laporte, Sonia Paço-Rocchia

Topic: "Does the musical instrument have to be deconstructed to transcend its clichés?"

The concert will be preceded by the fourth edition of Fiery encounters / Rencontres incendiaires. The aim of this new initiative by Quasar is to offer the contemporary music community at large an opportunity for exchange and debate. With free range of expression, and certainly no need for self-censoring, these round-table gatherings will bring together leading figures from the milieu with diverse, even opposite, profiles and opinions. In a consensual world in which the role of the critic has virtually disappeared, it seemed to us not only to be interesting but necessary to create the opportunity for the free circulation of ideas, while also promoting debate without digressing into argument. Our hope is that the clash of ideas will permit their enrichment, promote appreciation for differing visions of the world and involve the public in the liveliness of the milieu of Quebec contemporary musical creation.
