Crofts/ Adams/ Pearse
The Crofts / Adams / Pearse is Tim Crofts, Norman Adams and Lukas Pearse, three of Eastern Canada’s most active and exciting musicians in improvised music. The Trio explores music in the moment, at the frayed edges and deep wells of improvised chamber music. They compose in real time making pieces out of sounds sourced from their instruments in both traditional and most unusual ways: always anchored in listening. Because of this emphasis on spontaneity, their concerts are always unique and revitalizing. They create otherworldly atmospheres right before your very ears. The trio released Sonomatopia their first CD in 2009, and Literal Lateral with prominent American percussionist Gerry Hemingway in 2015. After a few years of hiatus, they’re happy to reassemble to help celebrate suddenlyLISTEN’s 20th year!
