Redshift presents “Meridians”, featuring the inaugural performance of the MARS Quartet (Mark Takeshi McGregor, flute; Marcus Takizawa, viola; Mark Haney, double bass; and Martin Fisk, percussion), and new music by Vancouver composers T. Benton Roark and Mark Haney. Haney’s new work, 3339, incorporates resonant melodies, pulsing ostinati, numerically‐derived structures and materials, looping figures and motifs, enveloping soundscapes, field recordings and a narrator to re‐tell the most mythic of all Canadian tales: that of Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope. Roark’s latest offering, Songs from the Rainshadow’s Edge, is a mythopoetic journey across the threshold of debilitating psychological trauma and back again. Touching on similar themes but with hindsight perspective, this haunting song-cycle serves in many ways as an epilogue to Benton’s recent, lauded record, The Return of the Lonesome Coyote Patchwork Pulpit, and Sundry Other Tales from the Rainbow’s End. Featuring guest artists Kathleen Allan, soprano, Adrian Verdejo, guitar, and Adrienne Wong (narration).
