Date: November 27, 2021
Time: 8:00 pm MST
Where: and your private parlour
Together Apart is an evening curated by composer Shawn Pinchbeck (CAN/EST) of sound and electroacoustic music artists from Canada, Estonia and Lithuania presented by the Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society (BEAMS).

Together Apart promises to be a special night of diverse sound and visual performances: from the truly stunning videomusic of Montreal based Myriam Boucher; to the intense electronic sounds of Estonian heli-meister Villem Jahu; to the live streamed performances by BEAMS Board Members M.O.A.I.N. (Chris Samson) and Skrunt Skrunt (Abram Hindle); and a fistful of tasty videomusic shorts offered like fancy hors d’oeuvres to refresh your palettes.
Each performance has been specially selected for this event to tickle your ears, lubricate your listening organs and open your third eye. Please join us!
