James O’Callaghan and Kosuth Variations

One of Canada’s most gifted and unpredictable composers, James’ work intersects acoustic and electroacoustic media, employing field recordings, amplified found objects, computer-assisted transcription of environmental sounds, and unique performance conditions. He won his first Juno at age 26, for ‘Classical Composition of the Year’. His artistic output spans chamber, orchestral, live electronic and acousmatic idioms, audio installations, and site-specific performances, and has been performed in 26 countries. So far. We got him first.
