Unconventional ensemble But What About has the refinement of a classical quartet, with the energy of a rock band and the creativity of free jazz. But in addition to their great musical qualities, all the members are also blessed with a theatrical flair and a great good sense of humour: this is why But What About’s performances are anything but boring. For Gaudeamus 2022 we invited them to collaborate with two composers who have been nominated for this year’s Gaudeamus Award: the dynamic and colourful Bekah Simms and the contemplative Baldwin Giang.
Bekah Simms – unabout, maintaining
Baldwin Giang – new piece
Bekah Simms composition was made possible with the support of Ontario Arts Council.
