scapegoat featuring Mauricio Pauly

Mar 12, 2020



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.


A free workshop with scapegoat and Mauricio Pauly that explored the particularities of composing for hybrid media; including instruments, amplification, and electronics. Scapegoat and Pauly workshopped pieces written specifically for the duo by local composers who were asked to consider how electronics and acoustic instruments might function integrally as a performative unit. 

In 2020, Western Front launched an open call for emerging composers to take part in the workshop. Participants included musicians Sam Meadahl, Lisa Walker, Ben Berardini, Stefan Nazarevich, Kimia Koochakzadeh-Yazdi, and Aysha Dulong. The public was also invited to stop by the Grand Luxe Hall throughout the day to listen and observe the process. 

Presented in partnership with Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts.
