This is a timelapse film that I recorded at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto in August of 2010. It was part of the What is Classical? festival and it features the world-premiere collaboration between composer John Burke and Ensemble Vivant. The composition, Mysterium, is a six minute work performed by Catherine Wilson, piano, Erica Beston, violin and Sharon Prater, cello.
The labyrinth offers the possibility of engaging the listener at a deeper level of awareness than is available in the concert hall setting by introducing a contemplative practice imbued with the ethos of the mythic journey.
The Labyrinth is created and fascilitated by Barabara Brown and Vanessa Compton of Canadian Labyrinth Ventures. You can find more information by visiting Labyrinth Musicand Canadian Labyrinth Ventures.
