New Generation Composers Workshop, 2021-22 Program

Performed by Odin Quartet (Alex Toskov, violin / Tanya Charles Iveniuk, violin / Matt Antal, viola / Samuel Bisson, cello). These compositions were presented as part of the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra’s New Generation Composer’s Workshop activities from our 2021/2022 season. Due to the pandemic, finishing audio recording and video editing delayed the release of these NGCW works. The SPO is pleased to have completed this core project and we appreciate the patience of the composers involved with this project, as well as the outstanding efforts made by the musicians and editors.

This project was made possible through the support of:

The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra is pleased to present new music from young Canadian composer, Mr. Harris Clark, as part of our ongoing SPO New Generation Composers Workshop activities. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, Mr. Clark used electronic sound generators to produce and record this selection. Mr. Clark also created the video to accompany his music. Here’s a brief message from Mr. Clark: “I created the song first, and I wanted it to be exciting and energetic. I also wanted to use a few different sounds, such as the piano and various electronic instruments. Then, I was invited by the SPO to create a video to go along with the music. It tells the story of a man getting out of work for the weekend, going to a party, and on the next day, going for a walk in the Guild Park and Gardens in Scarborough.”
