RED BULL MUSIC PRESENTS ROUND ROBIN: A NIGHT OF IMPROVISED DUETS
Red Bull Music presents:
Round Robin: A Night of Improvised Duets
A Red Bull Music flagship event series that has been held in cities including Montreal, Chicago, and Zurich, Round Robin comes to Toronto for a night of live improvisation. In collaboration with local monthly live jam PRACTICE, the evening will feature a diverse and accomplished group of Canadian musicians, artists, and performers. The rules are simple. To begin, a musician will take the stage for a five-minute solo performance. Then, another artist will join them for five minutes of duo improvisation. When that’s finished, the first musician will leave the stage, making way for a new artist to emerge and a new collaboration to be born. The wide-ranging lineup includes throat singer and Polaris Prize winner Tanya Tagaq, DJ and Juno-nominated producer Skratch Bastid, multimedia artist and harpist Maylee Todd, Cindy Lee (former Women frontman Patrick Flegel), electronic violist Melody McKiver, hip-house evangelist and Practice host Matthew Progress, TiKA, and Casey MQ (the latter two are also playing this year’s Red Bull Music Festival Montreal), with surprise guests to be announced.
In collaboration with PRACTICE.
