Musical Encounters and Human Creativity
Every act of music-making draws on ideas inherited from the past to create in the present. Every musical heritage reflects a history of human contact and creative responses to these encounters. In anticipation of “The Journeyed Compass,” this pre-show talk explores some of the ways in which our musical predecessors have engaged with and found meaning in transcultural musical creativity.
Eshantha Peiris (he/him) teaches music histories at Vancouver Community College and Vancouver Academy of Music.
