about

'Gardens' was designed as an informal tribute to arranger/ producer/ composer Charles Stepney. Its titles refer to the Come To My Garden by Minnie Riperton which Stepney co-wrote, produced and arranged. No musical materials were borrowed, however.

The creative processes which birthed this album was funded by the 2011 Toronto Emerging Composer Award, which is administered by the Canadian Music Centre and generously supported by Michael Koerner and Roger D. Moore.

No effects processing was employed aside from simple dynamics, equalization, mixing, and spatialization. Other 'processing' is strictly through acoustic or electromechanical means.

Nick Storring's work has been performed by the Esprit Orchestra, Thin Edge New Music Collective, Quatuor Bozzini and the Madawaska String Quartet. He has been commissioned by Arraymusic, Montreal’s AKOUSMA Festival and he is currently composing a commissioned solo work for Eve Egoyan slated for debut in 2015. In 2013 he received the Canadian Music Centre’s Norman Burgess fund to compose a pedagogically themed solo work for intermediate-level harpist.

Storring has two other albums coming out this year on Orange Milk and Notice Recordings. Keep an eye out for those as well.
