This innovative, 100% Canadian project bristles with new energy and collaboration. 4 commissioned quartets written by 4 hot young Canadian composers are played, repurposed and re-envisioned:

Act 1: Afiara Quartet performs the original 4 quartets
Act 2: Skratch Bastid plays remixed versions live
Act 3: Skratch Bastid and Afiara combine forces to play 4 new pieces derived from the original composers' responses to the remix.

Total it up and we hear 12 new pieces.

The award-winning Afiara String Quartet is The Glenn Gould School Fellowship Quartet-in-Residence. This residency is part of a program generously funded in honour of R.S. Williams & Sons Company Ltd. with additional support from Chamber Factory: Works for Small Ensembles.
