Thin Edge New Music Collective (TENMC) is a Toronto-based ensemble dedicated to ingenuity, collaboration, and artistic excellence in the programming and performance of contemporary music.
Founded in 2011 by co-artistic directors pianist Cheryl Duvall and violinist Ilana Waniuk, TENMC has performed across Canada, Italy and Argentina, and participated in residencies at the Banff Centre, Avaloch Farms New Music Initiative in New Hampshire and Le Pantographe in Switzerland. In addition to producing a regular concert series, TENMC has commissioned over 50 works from composers across Canada and beyond. Recent collaborations include “Raging Against the Machine” (RATM), a cultural exchange with Montreal-based Ensemble Paramirabo which toured across Canada in 2015 and 2017, coinciding with the release of a joint album on Vancouver-based Redshift Records and ”Balancing on the Edge”(BOTE), a large-scale production integrating theatre, dance, multi-media, new music and new circus, in partnership with ‘A Girl In The Sky Productions.’ Described as “provocative, thrilling and thought-provoking.” (Musicworks) and “a high-water mark for what multimedia storytelling can do “(The Wholenote), BOTE was presented at Toronto’s 2016 Nuit Blanche festival and in association with Harbourfront Centre’s NextSteps Dance Series (November 2016).
Thin Edge has established a reputation as “one of Toronto’s hottest and bravest new music collectives” (Musical Toronto), and “one of the city's most forward-thinking DIY chamber ensembles“ (Mechanical Forest Sound). TENMC has been showcased as an Ensemble in Residence at Wilfrid Laurier University's 2016 40th Anniversary New Music festival, the Soundscape festival of new music in Maccagno, Italy and has performed on concert stages across Canada including the University of Calgary’s Happening Festival of New Music and Media, as well as been presented by Ottawa New Music Creators, Innovations en concert, New Works Edmonton, New Music Calgary, Music on Main, The Little Chamber Music Series That Could, Open Space in Victoria, The Music Gallery in Toronto and as part of the NUMUS Emerging Artist Series in Waterloo. In Nov 2015 with generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts, TENMC had the privilege to perform in Argentina as part of the Ciclo de Música Contemporánea at the Teatro Nacional Cervantes in Buenos Aires as part of a cross cultural exchange with performers and composers from Argentina and Canada.
TENMC is proud to be an ensemble in residence with Arraymusic for their 2017/2018 season and is passionately dedicated to supporting their peers through commissioning and performance, bringing innovative and eclectic 20th and 21st century music to audiences both existing and as yet untapped.
