The next Original Gravity concert features the ensemble Transient Canvas, a Boston-based duo of Amy Advocat on clarinet and Matt Sharock on marimba.

Since their founding in 2011, Transient Canvas has had the great honor of commissioning and premiering over 30 new works for their unique instrumentation from composers such as Marti Epstein, Curtis Hughes, John McDonald, Rudolf Rojahn, Osnat Netzer, Mu-Xuan Lin, and more. Their recording of Andy Vores' Fabrication 10: Itch, which was one of the first pieces of music written for the duo, appears on his latest CD "One Head", released in January 2013

This excellent duo features Gary Dolinsky on guitar and Trish DeCaprio on violin. Both sing, trading off lead vocals and joining for sensational harmonies. Gary's a flatpicking guitar whiz, and Trish is an expressive violinist, both flexible and incisive. The result is an appealing polished sound. Their set list included a number of excellent originals, with some pleasing covers as well. I liked their version of the Beatles' "I Will", with a contrapuntal byplay of guitar runs and pizzicato violin figures. Great fun. A minute later they had me tearing up with a plaintive ballad, then tappint goes along with a twangy number. Make no mistake, these folks are good. We'll try to get them back, I promise! -David Keevil, Acoustic Showcase Lexington, MA
