Kara-Lis Coverdale is most well known for her work in electronics, but her performance at Grace Cathedral will draw from over a decade of her employment by the church as organist, while fully embracing the non-compromising artistic presence Coverdale is known for, drawing sounds out of the organ that re-frame the instrument and its repertoire with distinctive approaches to tactility, register, and shadow form. She will perform new work titled “State, Form, Interconnectivity,” from her ongoing specialized repertoire in transcendence, embodiment, and transcription of emotion.
Kara-Lis is a Canadian born composer, musician, and producer with Estonian heritage. She began studying piano with the Royal Conservatory of Music at 5 and has held positions as organist, choir and music directors across Canada since 13. Coverdale completed degrees in musicology and composition, writing a Masters thesis on the construction of timbral realism in mediated and recorded music, also studying composition, media and piano. She is recipient of Canada’s “Promising Young Artist” Award presented by Ann Southam, and has held residencies with GRM Paris, EMS Stockholm, FUGA Zaragoza, and more. Kara-Lis has performed live all over the world at institutions such as The Barbican, Theatre du Chatelet, AGO, MAC Montreal, Teatro Circo, Kraftwerk, and Elbphilharmonie.
