* Since 2014, The collective Grdina/Houle/Loewen has been performing
completely improvised concerts and different permutations of graphic scores. Recently however, the group has forged a new stream of complex compositions that meld together density, ferocious energy and technical virtuosity. The group’s versatility and wide dynamic range has become finely honed, creating an ensemble that can change course dramatically.
The group just spent some time at Afterlife Studios, recording two new CD projects, a set
of quartet music with French pianist Benoît Delbecq, and an album of original compositions by Grdina and Houle, to be released by Songlines Records in the fall of 2016.
