Battle Trance
Battle Trance
“These artists didn’t just make staggering music; they created a new repertoire of sounds, tools that hinted at the shared space between sweat and metal.”—JazzTimes

Battle Trance had an auspicious inception. One morning, Travis Laplante literally awoke with the crystal clear vision that he needed to start an ensemble with three specific individuals: Matthew Nelson, Jeremy Viner, and Patrick Breiner. Aware that a band of four tenor saxophones could be the worst idea ever, Laplante nevertheless followed through, and the ensemble formed that evening.

Battle Trance's sophomore album Blade of Love, the follow-up to their widely acclaimed debut Palace of Wind (2014), aims to fulfill the tenor saxophone's expansive potential as an ensemble instrument. Working within the intimate intersection of the human body/breath and the saxophone, Blade of Love is a spiritual and enigmatic work with a deep emotional resonance.
Josh Zubot / Tony Wilson Duo
New to Vancouver, violinist Joshua Zubot has come to age in the avant-garde scene in Montreal, leading the groups Subtle Lip Can, Mendham, and Land of Marigold. His playing talents can be seen in many music genres from classical, through folk and into the avant-garde. Guitarist Tony Wilson is unquestionably one of the most original guitar stylists on the Canadian scene. DownBeat calls him “…a talismanic West Coast figure.” Together, they’ll create improvised collaborative magic.
