LIVESTREAM ON JUNE 12: OrKidstra presents Yolande Laroche
OrKidstra is excited to present Yolande Laroche, a Facebook livestream event as part of OrKidstra @ Home! This FREE 30-minute concert for the OrKidstra family will take place online via Facebook livestream on Friday June 12, 3PM EDT.
Yolande Laroche, a classically trained clarinetist from Ottawa, steps into the realm of ambient chamber music with her solo project mal/aimé via experimental improvisation. She builds dreamy landscapes with loops on synths and voice while demonstrating an array of interesting traditional and non-traditional techniques on clarinet using breath, vocalization and percussive elements. mal/aimé has performed across Canada and at festivals such as Bluesfest (Ott), Megaphono (Ott) and Flourish Festival (NB).
Her 20 minute improvised set will feature loops and pedals on clarinet and piano to be followed by a 10 minute Q&A, where she will talk about her gear and her experience as a classical artist using technology to explore sound.
