    Fragment 1.2, I stand in the deepest blues: This excerpt is inspired by sounds from the
    various parts of the cello and double bass, including experimentations with mallets and
    fishing lines. An image emerged from this playful discovery - if one could stand upon the
    ocean floors, what might one perceive? And, in turn, how might one be perceived by the
    curious sea creatures?
    Fragment 2.1, iri/de/scence:
    A thousand flashes
    Seashells chase me, terrible
    Unending spirals.

    Janet Sit is currently in the Master of Music program at the University of Victoria under
    the guidance of Christopher Butterfield, John Celona, and Dániel Biró. Her past teachers
    include Alexander Rappaport and Norbert Palej, along with critiques and feedback of
    Chen Yi and Samuel Adler in summer workshops. Janet is interested in exploring the
    boundaries between music and sound and how this can be translated through the use of
    instruments and other media in traditional and unconventional ways. Her future projects
    include combining her background in zoology, with a focus on marine mammal
    communications, into her compositional processes.

    The Flower Sermon (2013) by André Mestre
    The Flower Sermon is a story that lies in the heart of Zen. It is told that Siddhartha
    Gautama once gave a wordless sermon to his disciples by holding up a white flower. The
    sermon touched on the ineffable nature of tathātā (suchness) and was only understood
    by Mahākāśyapa, who smiled.
    André Mestre (b.1986) is a Brazilian composer based in Canada. His works reveal a
    deep interest for acoustic sonorities and the indexical potentialities they carry. André's
    works have been performed in Brazil, Italy, United States and Canada, where his work for
    acoustic ensemble “Zikr” has been awarded the 1st Prize at the 2013 CUMS/SMUC
    Competition. Since 2008 he has been participating in new music festivals and workshops
    such as the soundSCAPE Festival, the Brazil-France Winter Academies and the Canadian
    Contemporary Music Workshop. André holds a Master's degree in Music Composition by
    the University of Alberta and Bachelor's by the State University of Campinas. His main
    professors were Howard Bashaw, Scott Smallwood, Mark Hannesson, Claude Ledoux,
    Jônatas Manzolli, José Mannis and Silvio Ferraz.

    Sketch for Cello, Double Bass and Piano (2013) by Sophie Dupuis
    When I learned about the instrumentation for the workshop, I knew I was going to be
    writing something gloomy and dark. Thus, the piece is about nothing in particular other
    than the sounds that the ensemble inspired me to work with. The form unfolds
    organically, the piano serving as the driving force for the piece to which the cello and
    double bass add colour from time to time. In some ways, I like imagining the piano as a
    living creature capable of emotions and the stringed instruments as the constant
    background noise generated by the impassive technology surrounding us.
    Sophie Dupuis is currently completing her master’s degree in composition at the
    University of Toronto and will be undertaking her doctorate at the same institution in
    September 2013. Dupuis recently took part in the Orford Creation Workshop with Ana
    Sokolović . Her piece for wind ensemble was selected as one of the winners for the
    University of Toronto Wind Ensemble Composition Competition in 2012 and was
    premièred in March 2013. Recent performances also include a Montréal performance of À
    la dérive in December 2012 by the duo aTonalHits, and Qui lazarum resuscitasti was
    performed by cellist Joëlle Mauris at the University of Toronto New Music Festival 2013.
