Proliferasian performs cutting edge music rooted in Chinese music and avant-garde jazz, representing the merging of two genres. The musicians explore the contrasting, complimenting, and sometimes contradicting natures of multiple influences. The result is a new musical species that proliferates and transforms continuously. Proliferasian may take inspiration from Asian music, literature, landscape, legends, or paintings, but its music will definitely break any preconceptions of Asian cultures.
Formed in 2012, Proliferasian consists of some of Vancouver's most innovative musicians: Lan Tung (erhu/Chinese violin & vocals), JP Carter (trumpet and electronics), Colin Edward Cowan (bass), and Kevin Romain (drums). Joining the band are guitarist Ron Samworth and cellist Finn Manniche. Proliferasian has performed at the Sonic Boom Festival, Vancouver Jazz Festival, Capilano University Concert Series, the Sound of Dragon Music Festival, and various local venues. This concert is co-presented by Sound of Dragon Society, Proliferasian, and the Coastal Jazz and Blues Society, and sponsored by the BC Arts Council and the City of Vancouver.
