Convergence Theory is back with a three-part digital edition. Starting July 23, FAWN will release a different online set once a month until September, each by an artist from our final Convergence Theory concert that we originally announced in “the before times”. We are very excited about all of these artists, both irl and online, so join us in turning all of our living rooms into micro experimental music venues.
First up is Maxime Corbeil-Perron on July 23 with a stereoscopic set that will blow the minds of even the most jaded music goers. Maxime is a Montreal-based composer, director and audiovisual performance artist. His work has been presented in more than a hundred international events and festivals, including: Mutek (CA), LIntonal (SE), Festival du Nouveau Cinéma (CA), Seeing Sound (UK), Videoformes (FR), Matera Intermedia Festival (IT), San Francisco Tape Music Festival (USA), Sound Image (UK) and the Computer Arts Festival (IT). Maxime has received numerous awards for his compositions and has been commissioned by the Continuum Ensemble, Ensemble Supermusique, Ensemble d’Oscillateurs, and Productions Totem Contemporain. His artistic practice has evolved in various forms, including music, cinema, audiovisual performance, video art, interactive art, electroacoustic music, electronic and mixed-media music, light and sound performance.

We will be raising awareness and donations during all three of these digital concerts for two vital charities:
Friends of Ruby was founded by Egale Canada in 2014 to meet the needs of LGBTQI2S youth. At their drop-in space, you’ll find meals, activities, support groups and community, including a Tuesday drop-in time reserved for BIPOC youth. They offer barrier-free one-on-one counselling, support with gender identity or transition, and help accessing housing, health care, and employment.
The AFC is the lifeline for Canada’s entertainment industry. Through compassionate and confidential support, they help Canadian entertainment professionals maintain their health, dignity and ability to work. The AFC helps entertainment professionals when they are at their most vulnerable due to injury, illness or other personal hardship. Through their Emergency Financial Aid Program, The AFC provides short-term emergency financial assistance for essential household bills and costs that cannot otherwise be paid.
