We are proud to welcome the Canadian Electronic Ensemble to the Toronto Sound Festival Stage! There will also be a panel discussion with the CEE.
The Canadian Electronic Ensemble was founded in 1971 and is the oldest continuous live-electronic group in the world. When the CEE was founded, electronic music could only be heard on tape. The CEE developed a new medium: live electronic music. The synthesizers of the time were enormous and not meant for live performance. Often, the members of the CEE had to design and build their own instruments. Forty five years later, the CEE is still at the forefront of live electronic music. Now using a combination of laptop computers, modular, and stand alone synthesizers, the CEE often pushes new technology to the limit. The CEE is able to deploy all of today’s and yesterday’s most advanced synthesis techniques – often concurrently.
