On its first tour through Canada, the Austrian 10-piece ensemble Studio Dan presents an evening of Canadian premieres. The program is a mix of pieces by emerging Austrian composers drawn from the Studio Dan scene (Mirela Ivičević, Caitlin Smith, Christoph Walder) as well as by other young European composers. One commissioned piece by Belarusian composer Oxana Omelchuk features two solo trombones, Johannes Kreidler’s (Germany) concept piece Charts Music was composed with the aid of stock exchange and trading charts. The concert will be topped off by another commission by AACM-icon and McArthur Genius Grant winner George Lewis and music by John Zorn.

Founded in 2005 for the first JazzWerkstatt Wien festival, Studio Dan started as a big band, but has since morphed to perform in various permutations, depending on the project. The group operates on the borders between diverse subgenres of contemporary music: improvisation, new music, jazz and art rock, and others.
