Sunday, January 19th: 6pm: RAGNHILD MAY - Solo! // 7pm: CECILIA LOPEZ / JOE MOFFETT - Synth and Trumpet! // 8pm: MICHAEL EATON / SETH DAVIS / DORIAN WALLACE CHERYL PYLE!

Presenting two sets of idiosyncratic and dynamic approaches to sound immersion and improvisation, RAGNHILD MAY and a duo of CECILIA LOPEZ and JOE MOFFETT each bring their distinct artistry to DMG. Ragnhild May, in New York from Denmark, brings her distinct solo work to the evening with her self-constructed instruments. Cecilia Lopez and Joe Moffett create bionic sonic constructions by merging acoustic instruments with synth and electronics. 

Soprano saxist, MICHAEL EATON, has played here at DMG on several occasions with Cheryl Pyle’s Beyond Group. Mr. Eaton is a gifted saxist with a new disc our as a leader and this is his first time at DMG with his own unit. Special guest, flutist, CHERYL PYLE, is added to his crew for this special occasion.

Festival International Musique Actuelle Victoriaville - 35th Edition - May 16th - 19th, 2019

Wow! To say that that this edition of FIMAV (a/k/a Victo Fest) was the best one in several years, would not be an understatement.
