Thin Edge New Music Collective

Based out of Toronto, Thin Edge is a group of 13 musicians who work in various combinations, commissioning and premiering work by both Canadian and International composers.

I like the first sentence of their “About” page:

Thin Edge…”believes that contemporary music is a powerful medium which has the ability to comment and reflect on modern society in a unique and poignant way.”

I might steal this idea for my own manifesto!

Check out several videos on their Watch/Listen page.  There are some great pieces here, including Brain Harman’s Hum, Chaya Czernowin’s Sahaf and  Anna Pidgorna’s Through closed doors and Molly Fishman’s Please Close Your Eyes.
