Soundstreams & The Gardiner Museum
Kate Franklin - Toronto, Canada

Soundstreams celebrates the 100th birthday of American composer John Cage at the Gardiner Museum with a fantastic night of music, dance, readings, visual art, and more!

Composer, poet, artist John Cage was one of the most important leaders of the 20th century avant-garde and revolutionized how we define music. Cage's works for prepared piano, toy piano, radios, percussion, and voice will be performed throughout the evening. Audiences will have the opportunity to engage with Cage's installation piece Concerto Grosso for 12 TV-Sets and 12 Radios, and create drawings as their own visual responses to his work.

Programmed by Lawrence Cherney, Artistic Director of Soundstreams, internationally renowned for his provocative, dynamic programming; the project also features dance choreographer Kate Franklin, who has inspired Nuit Blanche audiences since 2007..
