Tim Brady and Instruments of Happiness are well known for musical innovation, presenting works for 4, 20 and 100 electric guitars across Canada in new and unusual places to thousands of listeners. Over the past few months, they have been working on a new, virtual guitar concerto, bringing together 62 guitarists from across the globe, combined with stunning images by photographer Catherine Marcogliese, in a powerful 14-minute work of music and video art.

“Virtual Concerto in an Imaginary Space,” composed by Brady, features guitarists Brady, Jonathan Barriault, Simon Duchesne and François Brunet-Turcotte as a quartet of soloists in dialogue with an ensemble of their döppelgangers and 58 guitarists who create impressive, dramatic “wall of sound” orchestral counterpoints.

The work is in four sections: a rhythmic opening movement gives way to a slow, reflective slower section. A short cadenza for 58 socially distanced guitars then leads to a dance-like, groove-based finale.
