• Show Bio for Lori Freedman
"Lori Freedman. Born Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 1958. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (clarinet, bass clarinet)
Qualified as "a musical revolutionary in the front ranks of the avant-garde" by Alex Varty of the Georgia Straight (Vancouver), Lori Freedman (clarinets) is internationally recognized as one of the most creative and provocative performers. She is a member of a select group known as "renaissance musicians" as her artistic activities cover many fields: performer of written music (well over one hundred works have been written for or premiered by her), composer, improviser, teacher, and on occasion, writer. While managing a full performance schedule of more than 75 public appearances a year, Freedman has been receiving commissions to write music for ensembles such as Orkestra Futura, Arraymusic Ensemble, Ensemble Transmission, Continuum Contemporary Music Ensemble, Ensemble SuperMusique, Ensemble Paramirabo, Upstream Orchestra, Queen Mab Trio, Crowbar Trio, Lott Dance, Oberlander Films, Foresite Theatre, Cooke Productions and Autumn Leaf Productions. Her current discography comprises over 59 recordings, the most recent of which include Greffes (Empreintes digitales), On No (Mode Records), Bridge (Collection QB), Plumb (Barnyard Records), 3 and À un moment donné (Ambiances Magnétiques), Huskless! (Artifact), See Saw and Thin Air (Wig). Highlight collaborations include work with Rohan de Saram, Barre Phillips, Helmut Lachenmann, Frances-Marie Uitti, Monique Jean, Joëlle Léandre, Axel Dörner, George Lewis, the Jack Quartet and Richard Barrett."-ActuelleCD (http://www.actuellecd.com/en/bio/freedman_lo/)

descriptions, reviews, &c.
Cellist Mélanie Auclair's 2nd releases on Ambiances Magnetiques presents a series of 20 short tracks that mate music and ambient sound. Working with such strong players Antoine Berthiaume on guitar and Lori Freedman on clarinet, this is a release of interesting and reflective instrumental, textural and environmental works.
"To interpret a place, to inhabit a space...
"Although it accompanies our daily lives, noise is often ignored and underestimated. It should be listened to with the eyes. There can be no noise without movement, no movement without noise. With each heartbeat, each breath, life imposes its rythm like a city that imposes its symphony of noise. One that keeps our senses on edge. What is all this if not a constantly changing sonic landscape? The moment can last 4'33"... Often the banal sketches are drawn without leaving a mark, but sometimes the grandest of works can change our ideas forever. You only need close your eyes to see." -Antoine Berthiaume
