Prince to Come

Hi everyone,

Last month (March 2013), the Glass Tables teamed up with Upstart Theatre to present The Seagull in Four Movements. 

We wrote/performed live music and created the tape pieces for this modern adaptation of Chekov’s The Seagull. What an event it was! The Production ran at the Winchester Kitchen and Bar in Toronto ON, Canada March 14-23, 2013.

During her visit to Toronto, Renée (Stephanie Bitten) showcased her wild talent with her song, Prince to Come.

…and for the first time here with special collaborator, Stephanie Bitten on lead vocals, check out Prince to Come.

Thank you to the cast and crew of The Seagull!

Director: Meg Moran

Producer: Meara Tubman-Broeren

and cast:

Zack Amzallag
Aisha Bentham
Stephanie Bitten

Keep you eyes peeled for these amazing folks around the Toronto theatre scene.

Enjoy!

Nomination! Lodge N°1 for Instrumental/Experimental album of the year!

islandmusicawards.wordpress.com

On February 23, the Vancouver Island Music Awards announced their list of the 2013 nominees.

Lodge No.1 by the Glass Tables was nominated in the category of Island instrumental or Experimental album of the Year.

Our glass tables founders Sally Norris and Tomas Bouda joined forces with musicians, Larissa Mason (Ottawa ON) and Christopher Reiche (Victoria BC) to engage an intensive creative process captured by Lodge No.1

“We essentially went to the woods to create.  We wanted to be able to experience the beauty and calm of the forests” said Christopher Reiche.  The band was in the woods for just over a week while they wrote and recorded the pieces.

Their music is heavily based on improvisation and inhabits a space in between  jazz and free improv.  At the core of this album is the bands desire to experiment and try something new.

The album can be heard at

Love,

Sally & Tom
