Presented in Collaboration with Red Bull Music Academy.
Cascades is the music collaboration between two Montreal-based musicians: neo-classical pianist Jean-Michel Blais and genre-defying, Grammy Award-nominated electronic producer Mike Silver (aka CFCF).

Building on their sold-out performance that premiered as part of the globally celebrated 2016 Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal, 'Cascades' is a stunning five song, thirty minute meeting-of-minds that navigates spaces between the artists’ respective crafts and tendencies toward playful minimalism, here presented in its longer show form. Featuring reworkings from the duo’s catalogues, an interpretation of John Cage’s In A Landscape, and a new original, Hypocrite, Cascades is a celebration of the traditional and experimental, dissolving the old into the new.

CFCF was recently profiled in The New York Times and nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for his remix of Max Richter’s “Berlin by Overnight.” Jean-Michel Blais’ 2016 debut album Il landed on TIME Magazine’s top ten albums of 2016, debuting at number one on the Classical Billboard Chart (Canada), and was long-listed for a Polaris Music Prize. It has accumulated over 10.5 million streams on Spotify.

See Jean-Michel Blais in an enchanting solo show at The Famous Spiegeltent on June 15 then experience him and CFCF in Cascades at The Great Hall on June 24. Opening acts TBA.
