Vancouver New Music presents guitarist Adrian Verdejo performing works by Wolf Man Edwards and Peter Hannan

New composition “Chains” for solo guitar and electronics will be premiered in this online concert on February 20th 2021 at 2:00pm PST, and the performance video will be available until February 28th

This new work, written for guitarist Adrian Verdejo, explores the idea of memory and the obsessive nature of repetitive thought. Memories, like neuro-loops, tend to recur whether we want them or not. The archeology of our minds. The persistent building of trauma-layers that occur in many guises; sometimes clear, sometimes obscured, or warped, and often twisted with time. Like great chains we drag behind us, memory can be at times uplifting and inspiring or other times unveil the terrifying vistas of a bleak sub conscious horror.
