SONIATION DUO

New Classical Improvisation

In Soniation Duo, saxophonist Greg Bruce and pianist James Hurley weave together musical themes which they spontaneously create during each performance. Using sounds (son-) rooted in the classical tradition, this highly attuned pair explores creative sparks from their inception through adventurous ideation (-iation). Sometimes logical, sometimes whimsical; whether sure-footed or reckless, the two halves of Soniation Duo collide, mirror, and venture into uncharted territory to take the audience on an ever evolving, always fresh journey through new musical landscapes.

ABOUT GREG

Hailing from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Greg Bruce is a Doctor of Musical Arts currently teaching at the College of the North Atlantic. He has spent over 20 years in the music industry as a side-musician, soloist, composer/arranger, and band leader. During this time Greg has drawn on his training in classical and jazz to record, tour, and perform in every setting imaginable: from conferences in the US, to street parties in Canada, to palaces in Russia.

For his doctoral studies, Greg developed a “feedback saxophone” system whereby the saxophone is augmented by analogue media to manipulate acoustic feedback tones. He has since expanded this work to include various cassette tape media in a “post-digital” solo performance project. As an educator, Greg has taught privately for most of his career, led workshops and masterclasses at the University of Toronto, and worked as a per-course instructor at Memorial University.
