Description

Somewhere the Sea & Salt on CD

Charity's live performances focus on the evocation of alternative timbres from the piano, and the combination of these sounds with more traditional performance techniques. The immediacy of physical gesture and collaborative communication are also strong influences in her improvisations. While her creative work is primarily in contemporary improvised music, she has also worked and studied extensively in the classical and contemporary classical idioms. Charity has performed throughout Canada and in the United States and has conducted several group workshops in improvisation. Collaborations and studies include: Lori Freedman, Anthony Martin, Steve Bagnell, Dave Chokroun, John Heward, Damon Smith, Simon Rose, Fred Frith, Maggie Nichols, Frank Gratkowski, John Heward, Jean Derome, Joane Hétu, Danielle Palardy Roger, and Jack Wright. Recorded works can be found on Ambiances Magnétiques, Tzadik, and Innova Records. Her academic research approaches music from a socio-cultural perspective, and focuses on embodiment, ethics and legitimacy, and cultural memory in improvisation. Charity holds a Bachelor of Music degree from McGill University and an MFA in Contemporary Improvisation from Mills College. She is currently a PhD student at Princeton University (Musicology).
