Acadia Performing Arts Series Presents Ambitious Multimedia Collaboration between Montreal’s collectif9 and Architek Percussion.
By François Côté

In a true pan-Canadian collaboration, Montreal’s collectif9 and Architek Percussion come together to present a multimedia performance of music for amplified strings and percussion, video, and spoken words. My Backyard, Somewhere is a reflection of our malleable sense of belonging in a vast country; an exploration of boundaries and locations, of our displaced sense of home. With music by five multi-genre composers from across Canada, videography by Nicole Lizée, and the words of poet Kaie Kellough providing a narrative thread, My Backyard, Somewhere is a “musical migration” inspired by the relationship between people and places.
