Event description

Description

Entering its second season, Series 10dB is the in-house concert series of the LIVELab at McMaster University. This one-of-a-kind music research facility hosts ground-breaking research and dozens of events throughout the year. Series 10dB is your opportunity to experience music and science in the LIVELab.

Based on survey feedback from last years ticket buyers, we're adding more science and interaction to this year's concerts but still bringing you some of the finest musicians in the region in classical, jazz, hip-hop, traditional and experimental music. In addition to the incredible musicians and ensembles presented we'll also be highlighting a researcher at each concert. The researcher will connect their work to the music and musicians, the LIVELab's unique technology, and real-world applications.

Due to the incredible response last year we've also added a second showing of each concert. The LIVELab is an intimate 100-seat venue - so more performances is the only way to grow. This also means we commit more support to each artist so they can create a unique work just for this series.

Each night will include light snacks and a cash bar at intermission.

All concerts take place in the LIVELab.


Series 10dB 2016/17 Season


Brad Goode & Adrean Farrugia

February 2, 3, 2017 Doors 7:00 PM, Show 7:30 PM

Brad Goode/Adrean Farrugia Quartet!

Adrean and Brad met in 2003 on a Tuesday night in Toronto at the famous Rex Hotel Jazz Jam. Brad was passing through town and decided to stop in to play a few tunes with the house band, in which Adrean was playing piano. There was an instant musical chemistry between the two musicians, which both recognized immediately. Since then Brad and Adrean have performed together on four albums and have been heard together by audiences in Toronto, Hamilton, Chicago, Denver, Boulder, Dallas, Tokyo, and Amsterdam.
The two are preparing to record an album of duets for release in late 2016.
