X Avant XII Festival of New Music Resistance

The Music Gallery’s genre-less, boundary crossing festival of new & experimental music returns in 2017 with the theme of Resistance, from expressions of silent protest to lacerating, high-volume critiques.

Highlights include: Chino Amobi (NON Records), a night with Indigenous music platform RPM, a collaboration with electro-soul legends LAL and East African punk arts collective Babely Shades headlined by Avrha (Yamantaka//Sonic Titan), a final night remembering composer James Tenney, Man Forever (Oneida, Kid Millions), and a Deep Listening workshop dedicated to the memory of Pauline Oliveros, whose performance at X Avant last year was her final Toronto appearance before passing away.
