Otto Joachim and Gilles Tremblay: Pioneers of Electronic Music (Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the journal Circuit, musiques contemporaines).

A tribute to two composers from Quebec who both participated in Expo 67: Otto Joachim, who celebrates his 100th birthday in 2010, composed Katimavik (the first work in Canada to be composed entirely of electronically-generated sounds) for the Canadian Pavillion, and Gilles Tremblay, who is the subject of the SMCQ’s 2010 Homage Series, composed an electronic soundscape, Centre-élan, for the Quebec Pavillion. Both works will be performed and the installation will also include an exhibition of Joachim’s paintings.

Programme

Since 1990, the journal Circuit, musiques contemporaines, created by Lorraine Vaillancourt and Jean-Jacques Nattiez, has been publishing articles on contemporary concert music from Quebec and internationally. Editor-in-Chief: Jonathan Goldman.

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
