Noiseborder Ensemble (Brent Lee, Nicholas Papador, Sigi Torinus)
Subatomic Time: Percussion and Multimedia Performance Practice
Thursday, 10:00 a.m.
The Noiseborder Ensemble was founded in 2008 by a group of professional musicians and artists interested in the intersection of sound, image, and technology. Noiseborder Ensemble performances draw on diverse musical traditions including chamber music, experimental music, popular music, multimedia performance, electronics, and improvisation. The ensemble’s Noiseborder Multimedia Performance Laboratory on the University of Windsor campus is the home for the group’s performance and research activities. Their innovative multimedia performances and performance practice research have earned grant support from Canada’s most prestigious agencies such as the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Social Science and Humanities Research Council, and the Ontario Council for the Arts. Noiseborder Ensemble will begin work on a film performance/documentary of Subatomic Time, a concert length percussion multimedia composition. Their debut vinyl only release, Browsing Beauty, was released in 2009.
