Jason Sharp & Adam Basanta

Jason Sharp has emerged as one of Canada’s most fascinating New Music composers in recent years. From his roots as a saxophonist in Montréal’s fertile jazz and improv scene, Sharp developed as a soloist with drone-based durational music, circular breathing, and an increasing exploration of the body and technology. Along with bass saxophone, ‘Stand Above The Streams’ employs Jason’s custom Midi and synthesis apparatuses capturing heart and breath rate in real time and collaborates with Adam Basanta, whose renowned practice in sound art, sound installation and autonomous sound systems makes for an impressively immersive, layered and complex new work.
