India Gailey – Problematica

· by Frédéric Cardin

I recently told you about India Gailey, a Halifax-based Canadian cellist who gave a concert at the Sala Rossa in Montreal on 4 February. She was presenting the contents of her album Problematica, not yet released at the time. Well, it’s out now, and the result is exactly what we heard that evening: a cross between contemporary art music, indie and comprovisation (including pieces by Nicole Lizée and Thanya Iyer), in which not only the cello but also the voice and electronics combine to create unprecedented soundscapes. 

Read my interview with India Gailey: 

I won’t unnecessarily duplicate information about the programme, as it is discussed in the interview, but I will say that the seven pieces created by Gailey (they are all specific commissions) are part of an approach whose sonic setting involves as much attitudes of ambient experience proper to the indie way, as abstract atmospheres more linked to the world of contemporary music. India Gailey levitates in a space that might please a certain Jorane here in Quebec, but in a more disconcerting and exploratory manner.

This is very good stuff.
