The centrepiece of Elizabeth Lima’s improvisational practice (voice and clarinet) is the emotional response to sound: the human experience and interconnection shared amongst musicians and with the audience. She creates performances in which traditional and extended techniques are combined with theatrical elements. She performs regularly in Montreal, Quebec City and Rimouski
both as a soloist and within multiple ensembles: Framboos (Quebec-Montréal), which she cofounded in 2000, Le GGRIL (Rimouski), Sam Shalabi’s Land of Kush, who have released three recordings on Constellation Records and Joker Choir (Montreal) under the direction of Joane Hétu. She has performed with artists such as Joe Morris, Ingrid Laubrock and Caroline Kraabel amongst others. Elizabeth has also participated in premiering works by Xavier Charles, Scott Thompson,
Isaiah Ceccarelli and Lisa Cay Miller. She appears actively in various series in Montreal (Mardi Spaghetti, MercrediMusics) festivals (Suoni Per Il Popolo, FIMAV, Rencontres de musiques
spontanées, Phénoména, Festival OFF Québec) and with production companies such as Codes d’accès and Productions SuperMusique
Alix Hyde is a multi-instrumentalist and composer hailing from the UK. Their interest in improvisation stems from the profound potential for deep listening, expression and emotion that the practice allows. Alix regularly improvises (primarily on the violin) in diverse settings, from spoken word poetry to folk music
and has taken part in workshops by Keith and Julie Tippet and Maggie Nichols. Alix Hyde’s electronic music is being released on the Elestial Sound label and artist co-op in Gainesville Florida
