Silence is very excited to welcome Craig Pedersen back to Silence with his Quartet and a new CD!
Wednesday the 22nd of April. Doors at 8, music at 8:30 [$10/pwyc]
The Craig Pedersen Quartet is excited to announce the release of their third album, Ghosts.
The Craig Pedersen Quartet’s third release Ghosts is a contemplative work, exploring themes of darkness, suffering and the pleasure of ensuing release. Coming in at just under 18-minutes, the album is musically concentrated. Like running with weights, the musicians are squeezed to their limits, forced to express within tight constraints. The results are uncontrolled saxophone wails, soaring bass melodies, and explosive drumming all reigned in by Pedersen’s haunting trumpet playing and compositions. This is music that shows that from here, we need not answer to our suffering, but see that it has stood in front of something all along.
Available in hand-packaged letter-pressed CD sleeves with vellum inserts.
This recording was made possible with the generous support of the City of Ottawa.
