Project Description

Presented with Mercury Lounge, in partnership with the Arboretum Festival, the National Arts Centre‘s Wolfgang Sessions push classical music out of its comfort zone.

The music mixes contemporary and indie classical with exciting collaborations between NAC Orchestra musicians, video projection artists, and DJs.

I took these photographs during Session I on Valentine’s 2014. The creative environment was extremely low light – so low in fact that my fancy new lens was having trouble with its autofocus, and I had to set it, in the dark, without a light meter.

The results, especially with violist David Marks, are striking.
