The Space Between II

McGill University, Jan 25-27, 2024



Our second The Space Between events connected percussionists with research findings useful for their musical lives. Our event, held at McGill University, brought together a wide range of percussionists from from areas in across Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and Japan. This event was a collaboration with the Quebec Percussive Arts Society’s annual Day of Percussion.

A unique opportunity to advance the percussive arts across Canada

We engaged in research topics ranging from developing percussion instruments to being psychologically prepared for performances. With keynote presentations, lecture-demonstrations, research posters, and a concert featuring a wide range of solo and ensemble performances, this two day event, in partnership with QPAS, helped build on CPN’s virtual meetings to solidify the network.

We are grateful to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the McMaster Faculty of Humanities for their financial support, which allowed us to offer this event free of charge to participants and attendees.
