Transient Canvas presents Wired, a portrait of technology’s integration into modern life. As people try to emulate computers and we build computers that emulate people, the question of who is controlling whom becomes ambiguous. With musical inspiration ranging from Aphex Twin to electronic dance music, this program features music by Lainie Fefferman, David Ibbett, Peter Van Zandt Lane, Rudolf Rojahn, Mischa Salkind-Pearl, Dan VanHassel, and Kirsten Volness.

Praised by the Boston Globe as "superb", Amy Advocat and Matt Sharrock have been blazing their own trail as the bass clarinet/marimba duo Transient Canvas since 2011. In that time they have premiered over 75 works and performed across the United States and Europe. They have been presented by the Alba Music Festival (Alba, Italy), SoundNOW Festival (Atlanta, GA),  New Music Gathering (San Francisco, CA), New Music at the Short North Stage (Columbus, OH), and the Boston New Music Festival (Boston, MA), among others. Additionally, they have held residencies with the composition departments at Harvard, Northeastern, Brandeis, Otterbein, and Tufts Universities, the University of Georgia, the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Their debut album Sift is available on New Focus Recordings.

Transient Canvas proudly endorses Selmer clarinets and Marimba One marimbas and mallets.
