CIRMMT is pleased to participate in the Gérard Grisey, the spectral moment, and its legacy // le moment spectral et son héritage conference taking place in Montreal from the 19th to 21st October 2014.   

ABSTRACT:

"Gérard Grisey, the spectral moment, and its legacy" is a three-day research-creation event celebrating the music of French composer Gérard Grisey (1946-98) and its ongoing influence on contemporary musical creation. The event features an international colloquium and three concerts dedicated to exploring the legacy of Grisey’s music and compositional thought. The colloquium will take place over three days (19–21 October 2014), with presentations at both the Schulich School of Music of McGill University and the Faculté de Musique of the Université de Montréal. Invited speakers include scholars from the fields of composition (Jean-Luc Hervé, Philippe Leroux), musicology (François-Xavier Féron, Bob Gilmore, Jonathan Goldman, Robert Hasegawa), performance (Marilyn Nonken), and music psychology (Stephen McAdams). 

The concerts, featuring three prominent Montreal new music ensembles—the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (Lorraine Vaillancourt, dir.), Sixtrum, and the McGill Contemporary Music Ensemble (Guillaume Bourgogne, dir.)—will explore Grisey’s creative legacy through live performance. In addition to major works by Grisey (Vortex temporum, Le temps et l’écume and Tempus ex machina) the concerts will feature works by composers associated with the legacy of spectral music including Jean-Luc Hervé, Philippe Hurel, Philippe Leroux, and Kaija Saariaho.
