Upcoming Performances

Gesture and Transformation
By David Eagle and Jordan Wyshniowsky
May 30, 2020 at 8 pm
Online site will be issued to RSVP guests.
General $10, Students FREE, RSVP required. Admission price is optional.

An online concert of interactive electroacoustic soundscape compositions by David Eagle from Calgary. The concert will feature the premiere of Tactus for solo cello and interactive soundscapes performed by North Bay cellist Jordan Wyshniowsky. It will also include the world premiere of a new piece by David Eagle that uses the LeapMotion Sensor to control the live spatialization of soundscape textures. The concert will end with Eagle’s Passages and Scenes, Reflection and Memory, a historical reflection on the soundscape of Southern Alberta. Spatialization will be produced with Ambisonic binaural processing. Headphones highly recommended.
David Eagle composes chamber, orchestral and electroacoustic music, and explores interactive computer applications in composition, improvisation, multimedia and sound spatialization. In 2013 he was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He studied music at McGill University, at the Institut für Neue Musik, Staatliche Hochschule für Musik, Freiburg, Germany, and at the University of California, Berkeley (PhD 1992). Active as a composer and interpreter of interactive works, he has developed various approaches focusing on sonic transformation through gesture. With the aim of enhancing live expression in electroacoustic and interactive music, he performed an alternative controller called the aXiO. A major project was ‘one thousand curves, ten thousand colours’, a collaborative multimedia concert with composer Hope Lee and Ensemble Resonance, integrating live acoustic and electroacoustic music with computer-generated images. Eagle's work can be heard on New Concert Discs, Clef, UNICAL, isidorart recording, ARKTOS Recordings, MAPL, New Works Calgary and Centrediscs labels.
Jordan Wyshniowsky is principal cellist with the North Bay Symphony and is a strings instructor with the Symphony String School. He has studied with former Sudbury Symphony and North Bay Symphony conductor, Metro Kozak, and with National Arts Centre Orchestra cellists Amanda Forsyth and Margaret Munro Tobolowska. He is active in performing and recording music in the North Bay area. Recent projects have included performing with the Almaguin Strings and Hidden Roots Collective. He has recently released a recording of instrumentals called 'Jordan Music', featuring cello, guitar, and keyboards.

On May 30, 2020 NAISA hosted its first online presentation over the Whereby web-conferencing platform. It consisted of three compositions by David Eagle from Calgary which blended instrumental music, interactive electroacoustics, fixed media and soundscape recordings. Also featured was North Bay cellist Jordan Wyshniowsky in the premiere of Tactus. David Eagle premiered a solo performance of Through Autumn Mist using the LeapMotion Sensor to control the live spatialization of soundscape textures. The concert ended with Eagle’s Passages and Scenes, Reflection and Memory, a historical reflection on the soundscape of Southern Alberta.
