Sonic Oasis invites you to experience spellbinding ambient vibes with an edge: handpan grooves, ethereal vocals, dynamic bass and percussion, overlaid with otherworldly guitar and a host of other instruments, complemented by mesmerizing projected visuals. Sonic Oasis features Jocelyn Drainie on handpan, percussion and vocals; Sally Ludwig on handpan and vocals; Christine Mills on guitar, violin, flutes and more; and Stephen Vickery on electric and upright bass and vocals, with special guest Davrielle on vocals and keys.

Darryl Cremasco: Darryl holds a Bachelor of Music in Piano from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Masters of Music in Conducting from Memorial University of Newfoundland. Darryl has participated in many improvisation events including Sound Symposium in St. John’s, NL. As a piano teacher, he incorporates improvisation and composition in lessons. Tonight, Darryl will be sharing original works mixed with improvisation on acoustic piano.

Piers Oolvai and friends: Piers Oolvai is the marvellous noble persona of Nicholas Cooper bringing out his spontaneous queer essence to the fore with minimalistic soundscapes of post-progressive melodic ambiance and avant-garde improvisations, casted with his effected clarinet, extended effect pedal techniques in tandem, and a growing arsenal of other unique instruments. Piers will be joined by Vanessa Gemme and Vik Mudge who are exploring the intersection of movement and sound.
