A Gossamer Bit celebrates the longstanding association between the Toronto based ensemble Contact and composer Allison Cameron. A kaleidoscopic fusion of elements as disparate as minimalism, avant garde jazz and Charles Ives, Cameron’s music is spacious, introspective and hypnotic. Released in May this year, A Gossamer Bit is an immersive exploration of Cameron’s diverse output.
