Concert by Amy Horvey, Tetuzi Akiyama and Jeffrey Allport

Jul 1, 2006

Concert, Performance


Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


8:00 p.m.


This concert was a double bill of Amy Horvey (trumpet), and Tetuzi Akiyama (guitar) with Jeffrey Allport (percussion).

Horvey performed a series of short works, using her intimate style to eschew the traditional machismo of the trumpet, and explore its subtle sonic architecture.

Akiyama’s experimental guitar music bridged country blues and free improvisation, with acoustic and electric guitar, prepared resonator guitar with a katana, and a turntable without records. Allport provided exploratory percussion improvisations. 

Presented in conjunction with TD Canada Trust Vancouver International Jazz Festival.

Western Front is a non-profit
artist-run centre in Vancouver.

We acknowledge the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations as traditional owners of the land upon which Western Front stands.
