Copresented with The Andy Warhol Museum
Praised by the Boston Globe as "superb", Amy Advocat and Matt Sharrock have been blazing their own trail as the bass clarinet/marimba duo Transient Canvas since 2011. In that time they have premiered over 80 works and continue to perform across the United States and abroad.
For their program at The Warhol, Transient Canvas will perform music by Rudolph Rojahn (Somnambula), Mischa Salkind-Pearl (Solm), Brian Sears (Tremendous), Dan VanHassell (Epidermis), Peter Van Zandt Lane (Exergy Bubblebath), and Kirsten Volness (A Year without Summer).
They have been presented by the Alba Music Festival (Alba, Italy), SoundNOW Festival (Atlanta, GA), Composers, Inc. (San Francisco, CA), New Music at the Short North Stage (Columbus, OH), and Outpost Concert Series (Los Angeles, CA), among others. Additionally, they have held residencies with the composition departments at Harvard, Northeastern, Brandeis, Otterbein, and Tufts Universities, the University of Georgia, the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Their debut album Sift is available on New Focus Recordings.
