Beginning October 15th, and for five consecutive Wednesday afternoons, the Music Appreciation Society will present concerts by Vancouver musicians.


The Wednesday Afternoon Listening Events are part of the Charles H. Scott Gallery’s exhibition The Sound I’m Looking For- Part One which continues until November 16, 2008.

Jeffrey Allport is a Vancouver-based improvisational percussionist and "cracked electronics" noisemaker.

Aja Rose and Gabriel Saloman

Vancouver-based multi-instrumentalists Aja Rose and Gabriel Salomon explore the dreamy, fuzzy outer reaches of blissed-out, drone-based improvisation. Rose is a member of the experimental noise groups In Flux and Her Jazz Noise Collective and Salomon was a member of the now-defunct, well-regarded Portland Oregon based experimental electronic music duo Yellow Swans.

New Zealand born but Vancouver-based multi-instrumentalist Erin Ward is a busy member of the independent noise and experimental music scene. When not playing guitar in the hard-working punk band Shearing Pinx or making improvised noise with In Flux, to name only two groups she regularly performs with, Ward also seeks to further "confuse sound", as she describes it, as a solo performer under the name Les Beyond.
