The Glass Orchestra - Same / Human (2 álbuns)
The Glass Orchestra, founded in 1977, is the only ensemble in the world whose musicians create and perform contemporary compositions entirely with glass instruments. Drawing on a wide range of musical influences and performance techniques, the musicians explore the unique sonic properties of glass, creating an ethereal, percussive soundscape with a vast array of glass instruments, both "found" and custom made. The skill of the members of the Orchestra in designing and making glass instruments has earned them a place in the New Grove Dictionary of Musical Instruments.
The Glass Orchestra has appeared in major cities across Canada and has toured the United States from New York to Honolulu, and Europe from London to Berlin. In 1989, the ensemble completed an important seven-week tour of Asia, which took them to Taiwan, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Singapore, Japan and the Shenzeng and Zuhai International Arts Festivals in China.
Because of the extremes of its dynamic and frequency ranges, glass music has always proved a challenge to record. The Glass Orchestra has released four commercial recordings, the most recent titled "HUMAN". Through the use of the most sophisticated equipment, listeners are provided with a faithful reproduction of the delicacy and transparency of the timbre of glass musical instruments. Distribution, on CD or cassette, is through the Canadian Music Centre.
