Luke Nickel -- MCO Pre-Concert ChatTuesday Apr 25 2017 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
Manitoba Chamber Orchestra Pre-Concert Chat.
Luke Nickel is an award-winning Canadian interdisciplinary artist and researcher currently undertaking a PhD at Bath Spa University. He has worked with ensembles EXAUDI, the Bozzini Quartet, and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and has collaborated with galleries and organizations such as the Panoply Performance Laboratory (Brooklyn), G39 (Cardiff), and the Arnolfini (Bristol). A recipient of support from the Canada Council and other arts organizations, Luke currently has two main strands of work. The first is centred on memory and the process of transmitting musical scores. The second strand of Luke’s work is focused on the notion of text as sound—or sound in text.
Luke is also an active curator, and currently co-directs the Cluster Festival in Winnipeg. Cluster Festival is now in its seventh year and has featured hundreds of interdisciplinary artists from across the world in innovative forms of presentation.
This evening he will be discussing the World premiere performance of his piece aadagio on Wednesday April 26 at Westminster United Church.
