Cluster Festival, March 27 2015

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 7.10.20 PM“Cluster 2015 marks two extraordinary new collaborations: the first with Toronto’s Vector Festival 2015 in co-presenting the Impossible Architectures video game art exhibit (guest curated by mrghosty aka Skot Deeming), and the second with former Winnipegger Eliot Britton becoming Cluster’s third co-Director.

“Cluster continually forces me to confront assumptions about art, and to reconsider what is feasible regarding community and collaboration. Every year I am genuinely surprised and this is a rare and special thing”.
– Eliot Britton

This year will be no different.

Interfaces are shared points, boundaries, or continuums where multiple systems or individuals meet and interact. Cluster has taken this to heart, investigating the intersections between communities, humans, bodies, avatars, systems, psychologies, histories, models, musics, instruments, surfaces, and textures — to name a few. In short, INTERFACE is a celebration of everything Cluster has been about since year one: optimistically forging a new path forward through joyous exploration of endless possibility.

Eliot Britton, Luke Nickel, and
Heidi Ouellette, co-Directors”

PLUMES       co-presented by núna(now)

Friday, March 27, 2015
Doors: 7 pm, Show: 8 pm

Cluster 6 opens with two acts that flirt with, hop across, and ultimately breach the boundaries of countless musical genres. 

First: Cellist and composer Fjóla Evans presents a solo set of ambient experimental sound based on field-study of Icelandic folk songs and a vocal intoning of epic poetry called Rímur.

Second: Plumes Ensemble, a hybrid pop/classical group originating from Montreal, performs a set of mostly original songs with detours into the oeuvres of Bartok and Berio. Expect extended techniques, gleaming electronics, and complex layers of minimal melodies.
