On April 21st, Bass Lions we will release an EP of modern adaptations of classical music by Bach and Holst – plus a collaborative arrangement & single – with members and associates of the KW Symphony Orchestra.
“Threes” represents and rare opportunity for classically trained musicians to work with independent “rock” musicians to create and record hybrid arrangements of classical music and contribute to original composition. Read about the project at IMPOSE’s premiere.
“Threes” was produced by Ian Smith and recorded at Escarpment Sound. Grab yourself an advance of the full EP, now.
This project expands on the inventive, cross-genre process members of the community of musicians in Waterloo Region have been developing. Collaboration between symphonic and “rock” musicians has already resulted informative and enlightening workshops featuring a wide range of formally and informally trained professional and semi-professional musicians, and a well-received concert of original arrangements of classical music performed in a modern venue for a discerning, and enthusiastic audience.
Over the year’s we have released two albums on Nevado Records and Nevado Digital/Fontana North: 2007’s ‘More Than Islands’ and 2010’s ‘…is Diamonds’. In 2014 Bass Lions released a self-titled EP via Fortnight Music. So far, this is their largest undertaking.
