  • Melodica

    Architek is excited to announce its first Montreal concert of the 2013/14 season, entitled Melodica.  This dynamic program presents five Canadian-composed works for mallet percussion quartet.  Featuring two pillars of Canadian contemporary music (Claude Vivier and Christos Hatzis), and two emerging composers (Eliot Britton and Ben Duinker), Melodica draws on influences as diverse as Balinese gamelan, Byzantine chant, minimalism, eight-bit video game soundtracks, and the sounds of the Montreal Metro.  For details, please consult the events section of this website.
