FLOATING DREAMS, by Róisín Adams
This piece aims to corroborate years of tradition that links breathing in unison to a common spiritual good amongst players and listeners alike. The music that comes from this improvised score is a plead and an expression of gratitude.
Hailed as “a master composer and improviser” by The North Shore News, Vancouver-based Róisín Adams’ visionary work combines ethereal, textured melodicism with an underpinning of intellectual rigor. An imaginative and immensely prolific composer, pianist, bandleader and educator, Adams is also an astute collaborator in a range of projects. Her work has been featured at the Silk Purse Jazz Waves Series, Queer Arts Festival, Sonic Boom Festival, Western Front, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
