Following his latest baroque art-pop album, 2014’s In Conflict, Arcade Fire collaborator and Oscar-nominated arranger, composer, conductor, songwriter, keyboardist and loop pedal violinist Owen Pallett is set to debut a fresh live set of almost entirely new songs in The Great Hall’s Longboat Hall.
In recent years, Pallett has also composed music on commission for London’s Barbican, The National Ballet of Canada, and Anonymous 4; contributed arrangements to twenty-five records including Pet Shop Boys, R.E.M., Robbie Williams, Taylor Swift, Linkin Park and The National; created music for the video games Portal 2 and Sword & Sorcery; and received an Emmy for his soundtrack to the New York Times Magazine-sponsored Fourteen Actors Acting project, as well as that 2014 Oscar-nomination alongside Arcade Fire’s Will Butler for their work on Spike Jonze’s Her.
In addition, Pallett continues to tour periodically with Arcade Fire, on synths and viola, and has recorded close to a dozen soundtracks for art films and performance pieces by directors and ensembles not yet “famous” enough to list. (Though Pallett himself would easily be as likely to speak of a Toronto metal band he worked with as he would his more high-profile collaborations.)
As he continues to straddle the pop-classical divide, applying his formal background in composition to his own intricate material, there is one thing we can count on from this latest Owen Pallett solo show — a night of truly intriguing and memorable music.
