nnoff project is a re-creation from the tesse ensemble to form a duo – Audréanne Filion, cello and Ofer Pelz, piano – and perform Canadian, international and their own music. Both are professional musicians, composers and improvisers. The music will be an exploration of contemporary music, with an eye to the past – exploring this historically significant cello and piano duo through the lens of today’s music. Our mission is to present rare contemporary music from Canada, but also from marginal or diverse cultures, such as the Middle East or Asia. This project will include creations by its members, improvisations and semi-composed works, along with composed repertoire from the present and from the past.
