Allison Cameron: A Gossamer Bit

by Contact

A Gossamer Bit celebrates composer Allison Cameron’s long standing association with the Toronto-based ensemble Contact (Jerry Pergolesi, artistic director). A kaleidoscopic fusion of elements as disparate as minimalism, avant-garde jazz, and Charles Ives.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Gossamer Bit
Allison Cameron
Contact

Composer Allison Cameron has long established herself as an indispensable part of the Canadian music bedrock. A kaleidoscopic fusion of elements as disparate as minimalism, avant-garde jazz, and Charles Ives, Cameron’s music is spacious, introspective, and utterly hypnotic. A Gossamer Bit — Cameron’s first album on the Redshift Records label — celebrates her long standing association with the Toronto-based ensemble Contact (Jerry Pergolesi, artistic director). Each of these four compositions has been deftly realized, from the harmony-driven motor rhythms of 3rds, 4ths & 5ths, to the smoky, jazz-ballad atmosphere of D.I.Y. Fly, to violinist Sarah Fraser Raff’s passionate declamations on the title track. A Gossamer Bit is an immersive exploration of Cameron’s diverse output and a beautifully detailed portrait of a vital Canadian artist.
