    Filaments: Ilana Waniuk, violin

    Filaments is a collaborative concert project featuring works for violin and electronics by artists/composers from across Canada. Each piece explores what happens when electroacoustic, multi-media, or improvisational elements stretch the boundaries of what it means to compose/perform/create works for ‘solo’ violin. Filaments features works by Róisín Adams, Ben Wylie, Julia Mermelstein with world premieres by Fjóla Evans and UVic School of Music Assistant Professor Anthony Tan.

    Ilana Waniuk is a versatile violinist with interests ranging from improvisation to visual arts. Along with pianist Cheryl Duvall, Ilana is a founding member and co-artistic director of Tkarón:to (Toronto) – based ensemble Thin Edge New Music Collective and Balancing on the Edge (multidisciplinary production company merging contemporary music and circus arts). She has toured Cape Breton/Ontario with the Bicycle Opera Project, and performed at music festivals including Suoni per Il Popolo in Montreal, Open Ears in Kitchener/Waterloo as well as with Chicago’s Ensemble Dal Niente and Noise (San Diego). Ilana has performed on concert stages across Canada, Italy, Argentina, Poland, Japan, Iceland, Mexico and Germany and is currently a doctoral candidate in contemporary performance at the University of California, San Diego.

    Filaments is made possible with generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts, and the SOCAN Foundation.
