Concerto for T-Stick and Two Laptop Orchestras

Here’s a video from way back in 2011 that only recently noticed on YouTube. It features D. Andrew Stewart playing the T-Stick as instrumental soloist with laptop orchestras from Concordia and McMaster Universities.

The piece was co-composed by Eldad Tsabary (director of the Concordia Laptop Orchestra, CLOrk), D. Andrew Stewart (T-Stick) and David Ogborn (founder of McMaster University’s Cybernetic Orchestra).

Interestingly, there are also a couple of videos online in which composer Kevin Austin presents the video and discusses the piece.

Video: Experimental Music from Brazil and Beyond

Video has now been posted from the concert “Experimental Music from Brazil and Beyond” at the University of Lethbridge. The concert featured two performances with T-Stick: a solo written by Patrick Hart and D. Andrew Stewart, and a trio improvisation by Fernando Rocha (percussion, including another project of mine: the Hyper-Kalimba), Elise Pittenger (cello) and D. Andrew Stewart (soprano T-Stick).
