Constant/Gray Duo & Incandescent Cat-Dude

A rare noon set at the Tranzac. Join us for: 

Constant / Gray
"A duo project featuring Rebecca Gray (voice) and Sara Constant (flutes), working with an emphasis on contemporary chamber music / multimedia / new music theatre / interdisciplinary collaboration."

Followed by a group I’m excited to join for this show:

Incandescent Cat-Dude
"The music of the 17-piece big band Incandescent Cat-Dude showcases classical, cinematic music illustrating images such as a delusional, inept superhero who is half-cat, half-dude, a gravelord who found the Souls of Lords within the flame, and a gluttonous monster that will engulf the world."

https://coleblouin.bandcamp.com/
(GENRE: MUSIC OF MOUNTAINS aka irresistible)
Cole Blouin is an improvisational guitarist, composer and songwriter whose music wanders in the wilderness between the singer-songwriter, jazz, contemporary classical, and American folk traditions. His work has been described by Tin Hat's Carla Kihlstedt as being "very beautiful and very strange". Formerly a liberal arts student at Oberlin College, he now studies Contemporary Improvisation at New England Conservatory.

9:30 PM decoration day

(GENRE: SAD BUT KIND OF FUNNY)
Led by songwriters Justin Orok and Tiffany Wu, Decoration Day is a chamber-folk group based in Toronto. Bringing together musicians from classical, indie rock, and improvised music circles, the group’s approach to traditional song forms is striking and wholly unique. Fluttering acoustic guitars and crystalline vocals rest atop a soft sound field of violin, harmonium, vibraphone and bass clarinet.
tldr; randy newman vs nick drake who will win
