Stingray Classical Artist in Residence: Jean-Michel Blais – “Improvisation 2”

Watch Montreal-based artist Jean-Michel Blais perform “Improvisation 2.”

The Polaris Music Prize short-listed musician creates post-classical piano music that blends his classical skill and precise pop sensibility with synthetic accompaniment.

In 2019, while the Stingray Classical Artist in Residence at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre, Blais performed an intimate workshop illuminating his personal philosophy of improvisation.
