Through musical explorations of sonic textures and gestures, spectralism embodies a fascinating and exceptionally resonating sound world. Presenting seminal works by spectral composers rarely performed in Vancouver, Spectralism harnesses the sounds of Plastic Acid Orchestra, led by guest conductor Giorgio Magnanensi, to present works by Italian pioneer Giacinto Scelsi, French visionary Gérard Grisey, Hungarian innovator György Ligeti and a newly commissioned piece by Canadian composer Mariah Mennie.*
