Join us for the 2nd edition of Reverb, the final in-person concert of TENMC's 2022/2023 season. Our programme will showcase works by Romain Camiolo (Montreal), Nasim Khorassani (Iran), Bekah Simms (UK/CA) and Jocelyn Morlock (CA) alongside world premieres by Luke Nickel (EU/CA) and Devon Osamu Tipp (USA).

Reverb is designed to support artists from a variety of stages in their career through commissioning, premiering works that haven’t had the opportunity to be performed, and providing additional performances of existing compositions. 

Stay tuned in winter 2024 for the digital album drop on bandcamp!

Ever since Luke Nickel was a child, he has dreamt of creating roller coasters. Now, in his music composition practice, Luke has found countless ways to transform these speed machines into music, such as using simulated roller coasters as digital instruments or using footage of real roller coasters as video scores.  


In this lunch-hour talk, generously hosted by the Canadian Music Centre Luke asks: what does it mean to be a fan of something, and how does being a fan of roller coasters relate to making chamber music? He will delve into the cringe-y-ness of fan culture, the power of fan objects to change history, and the challenges of creating a fan club chamber music performance.

When I was asked to curate a show for TENMC, I wanted to bring together artists that I really admire who are working at the intersectionality of technology, identity, structured improvisation and play. I met Trevor Van de Velde while at Dartmouth College (and performed with him in his first iteration of a work called Hacking Grains where he hacked rice cookers and turned them into instruments) and KITE while working with Raven Chacon on his solo series of works (Raven wrote a solo piece for KITE as well as myself, which we performed at The 2022 Whitney Biennial). The research and artistic work that both artists are working on, creating and presenting are deeply embedded in their own histories and identities which was an important aspect of the curation behind this program, I wanted to bring in artists who were pulling inspiration from all directions including themselves. Trevor Van de Velde and KITE are absolutely brilliant and I'm excited for this show and am grateful that TENMC trusted me with one of their shows this season.” - Olivia Shortt
