The Dimensions In Sound (DIS) project is ultimately an exploration in human perception (how we perceive music). Professional visual artist Allyson Glenn has embraced her unique way of experiencing music as a synesthete through teaming up with the SJO A.D. Dean McNeill and Saskatchewan composers Paul Suchan and Silas Friesen; this show will feature original music matched to Allyson’s original visual art, all of which has been created (i.e. premiered) for this show! Repertoire for this concert will also include works by Radiohead, Pat Metheny and others like-minded composers. The show is certain to ignite your musical senses!
To create the original repertoire for this event the composers interviewed Allyson, gaining insight into what sorts of musical sounds most strongly ‘activate’ her synesthesia. They wrote music inspired by these interviews and Allyson in turn created a visual animated movie landscape reflecting her own reactions to this newly composed music. This show is certain to inspire and provide insight into the creative process on many levels.
If you are comfortable attending an SJO concert in person at the Broadway Theatre, you should purchase a ticket or tickets as your normally would here on the Broadway’s website.
If you would rather live stream the concert at home or watch the concert on demand after it has premiered, you can do that too. You will be able to purchase access to the concert live stream directly through the SJO. The SJO is hard at work ironing out the logistics involved in delivering high quality concert live streams and video on demand to their audience, and more information on accessing live streams and VODs will be available soon.
When more concrete live stream access and ticket purchasing information is available, the SJO will update their website and reach out via social media and their newsletter.
Please check the event info page (link below) for this concert on the SJO’s website for more information on live stream access, and for information on how to stay informed when more info becomes available.SJO's Website: Dimensions In Sound
