For more than a decade, Boston-based contemporary duo Transient Canvas has been thrilling audiences with their “engaging musicality and easy sense of ensemble” (Cleveland Classical) and “superb” performances (Boston Globe).

Bass clarinetist Amy Advocat and marimbist Matt Sharrock relish the creative potential of working with living composers, with the San Francisco Chronicle lauding “the versatile imagination they both display and inspire in others.”

With a commissioned repertoire of over 90 works, they have released three albums on New Focus Recordings: Right now, in a second, named a top-ten local album of 2020 by The Boston Globe; Wired, “a must-add to any new music lover’s library” according to I Care If You Listen; and Sift, which KLANG New Music called “one of the more refreshing things I’ve heard in recent years.”

Highlights of their 2022-23 season include collaborations with composers Matthew Evan Taylor, Yoon-Ji Lee, and the world premiere of Elliott Miles McKinley’s Pale Blue Dot for bass clarinet, marimba, and string quartet; concerts at the Vienna Summer Music Festival (Austria), Alba Music Festival (Italy), Dancz Center for New Music (Georgia), North Carolina NewMusic Initiative, ICA Low Clarinet Festival (Arizona), and New Music at the Short North Stage (Ohio).

They also held residencies at Penn State, Kent State, East Carolina, and Cleveland State Universities, the University of Georgia, the University of North Texas, and the University of Northern Iowa. Past seasons include featured performances at Music on the Edge, Composers, Inc., Charlotte New Music Festival, FeNAM, New Music Miami, SoundNOW Festival, Music at the Forefront, Outpost Concert Series, New Music Nights at Spectrum, the Corwin Chair Concert Series, Nevermind the Noise, Ethos New Music, New Hampshire Music Festival, Re:Sound, the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, and the Guerrilla Composers Guild, among others.

They have performed and presented at several professional conferences including PASIC, ICA Clarinetfest, SEAMUS, SCI National Conference, and two New Music Gatherings. In Boston, they have been featured on the Equilibrium, Original Gravity, Opensound, New Gallery, Lowell Lecture, and Times Two concert series.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
