Join Andrew Staniland and friends for a celebration of the release of Taking Down the Tiger, featuring performances by Michelle Cheramy, flute and Rob Power, percussion. 

Andrew Staniland is recognized as one of Canada’s most important and innovative musical voices, and his works are performed and broadcast internationally. He has already composed a powerful body of music for solo instruments with electronics revealing the exciting and evocative use he makes of sound files and looping. Talking Down the Tiger explores the ferociousness, beauty and mystery of percussion instruments whilst Flute vs Tape is virtuosic, vivacious and not afraid to embrace capricious fun. These qualities permeate his music and help explain why Alex Ross calls it “alternately beautiful and terrifying.”
