60X60 DANCE CANADA is a project containing 60 solo choreographies to 60 electroacoustic pieces by 60 Canadian composers, each piece 60 seconds or less in duration. The pieces are sequenced together without pause to form an exactly one hour long performance. The sound will be projected in multichannel through 8 loudspeakers, and the dance and music will be accompanied by live video projection of an analog clock, spectrographic images, and dance footage. This event is the third (and biggest) of the Canadian 60×60 Dance, organized by Eldad Tsabary, Violaine Morinville, Tim Sutton, and Rob Voisey. Through this inter-artistic hour-long collaborative creation, 60×60 seeks to support and highlight the contemporary art community. This show is presented in collaboration with the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC).

60×60: Wellington welcomes New Music’s fastest-ticking clock2
New Zealand is counting down the seconds as it is set to host the annual 60×60 music event for the first time in the project’s history. Organised by indespensible arts mag “White Fungus” and New York’s Vox Novus (a collective of “composers, musicians and facilitators of contemporary music”), 60×60 will take place at Wellington’s “Happy” venue on September 10th. At the heart of the performance will be a compilational composition, seamlessly integrating sixty different works by sixty different composers all taking sixty seconds or less – being played against the image of a giant analog clock with the assistance of Wellington artists. As much as it is a locally organised event, 60×60 also has a strong international focus, with similarly organised performances taking place all around the world. Furthermore, an integral CD version will accompany the live event, allowing for borderless dissamination of the work.
60×60 was initiated in 2003 and has since grown into one of the planet’s most coveted contemporary music events. This year alone, the project received over 2500 submissions from a staggering 50 countries. Because the piece is stylistically diverse and eclectic by default, its success can be explained by the sheer wealth of different approaches on display and its capacity of organically integrating them underneath the roof of “New music”.
It is important to note that there is not one definitive version of the piece, as different regional mixes cohabitate with the all-encompassing international mix. The event in Wellington, for example, will premiere the Pacific-Rim mix and feature live contributions by Birdcatcher (Antony Milton and Bill Wood) as well as Harry Rama with Chris Barama (Jeff Henderson group).
The New Zealand rendition of 60×60 is set to start at 8pm.
