Product Notes

Charity Chan: Charity is an artist/scholar whose live performances focus on the evocation of alternative timbres from the piano, and the combination of these sounds with more traditional performance techniques. The immediacy of physical gesture and collaborative communication are also strong influences in her improvisations. While her creative work is primarily in contemporary improvised music, she has also worked and studied extensively in the classical and contemporary classical idioms. Charity has performed throughout Canada and in the United States and has conducted several group workshops in improvisation. Collaborations and studies include: Lori Freedman, Anthony Martin, Steve Bagnell, Dave Chokroun, John Heward, Damon Smith, Simon Rose, Fred Frith, Maggie Nichols, Frank Gratkowski, John Heward, Jean Derome, Joane Hétu, Danielle Palardy Roger, and Jack Wright. Recorded works can be found on Ambiances Magnétiques, Tzadik, and Innova Records. Her academic research approaches music from a socio-cultural perspective, and focuses on embodiment, ethics, the construction of legitimacy and value, and cultural memory in creative improvisation. Charity holds a Bachelor of Music degree from McGill University and a Master of Fine Arts degree in contemporary improvisation from Mills College. She is current pursuing a PhD in musicology at Princeton University. FENAISON: Fenaison is a group committed to the making of new music that is texturally driven, improvised, exploratory, and boundary crossing. Performing with intuition, ingenuity, and integrity, Fenaison pushes the limits of the anticipated and the accepted with their dynamic and intensely unique performances. Members of the ensemble come from such diverse backgrounds as classical composition, noise music, contemporary performance, improvisation, electronic music and jazz. This ensemble has been heralded as both exciting and innovative. "Listening to Fenaison reminds me why I enjoy improvisation. They make music that is passionate, mysterious, and full of contradictions - careful and abandoned, melodic and noisy, peaceful and edgy, logical and surprising - music that doesn't make sense. In other words, it's alive! And well..." (Fred Frith)
