Graham Martin was the star of the show on November 18, 2017, taking the contrabassoon front and centre in a solo role. HATE MAIL & Irreconcilable Trolls by Spy Dénommé-Welch & (DFM’s own) Catherine Magowan is a 20 minute work for voice, contrabassoon, piano, electronics, projections.
Inspired by ridiculous hate mail and anonymous trolls who hide within the interweb, Hate Mail brings them the 15 minutes (…well 20 minutes) of fame they didn’t expect, but secretly desired through the voice, contrabassoon and piano.
