The World Premiere of Dynergetics at Ottawa Winterlude

At the 2011 Winterlude opening ceremonies at the Museum of Civilization, Jesse Stewart presented a musical piece  inspired by the principles of "yin and yang" in Chinese philosophy. The resulting piece, "Dynergetics," was performed by Stewart and percussionist Johannes Welsch at -20C. The 11-minute performance  featured gongs, ice marimbas, pyrophones, glass flute and two ice-like drum sets.
