MutedNote_SusannaHood_c680Thursday September 25 at 8 pm, $10. The Muted Note: Songs Based on Poems by P.K. Page, created and performed by Susanna Hood (voice & dance) and Scott Thomson (trombone). Artword Artbar is one stop on Susanna and Scott’s tour performing The Muted Note as a duo in small venues across Canada. http://www.scottthomson.ca/muted-note/
The Muted Note is a suite of songs composed by Scott Thomson, settings of poems by P.K. Page, for Susanna Hood’s singing voice. As a duo, Susanna, in addition to singing the lyrics, improvises on the songs both vocally and in dance, a synthesis for which she is singularly acclaimed in Canada. Scott, on trombone, both underpins Susanna and solos on the songs in a wide-ranging style that reflects his broad experience as an improviser. Throughout, P.K. Page’s stellar poems are at the core of the work and, in both dance and music, Scott and Susanna seek to animate and activate the verse as they play. Their extensive Canadian tour this autumn will help to promote their new duo disc on &records.
Susanna Hood is a compelling and virtuosic performer in dance and music. Read more…
