Architek is happy to announce the addition of our newest member, Noam Bierstone. This is a homecoming of sorts, as Noam was a founding member of Architek before pursuing graduate studies in Paris. Now returned to Montreal, he has established himself as a virtuosic and forward-thinking member of the experimental music community, performing with a variety of organizations and co-curating a concert series called No Hay Banda. Read his full (short) bio below, and come say hi and give him a welcome hug or high five at an Archi-concert near you.
Noam Bierstone is a Canadian percussionist and curator dedicated to modern artistic performance. Committed to the creation and development of new music, Noam’s main projects include his saxophone & percussion duo scapegoat, the Montreal performance series NO HAY BANDA, and Architek percussion quartet. Noam pursues ongoing collaborations with various composers and artists, with a particular interest in works that expand the notion of percussion playing through new techniques, hybrid instruments, and performer-controlled electronics. Noam is regularly invited to perform at international festivals and with leading new music groups, and in his spare time he enjoys cooking, biking, and doing yoga.
