Two of Canada's most esteemed artists, composer Andrew Staniland and poet/illustrator Robin Richardson joined forces to create an evening's worth of song and illustrations for Sparks & Wiry Cries inaugural commission, entitled Earthquakes & Islands.  Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Art Song Society, the ambitious work was brought to life for a sold-out audience by soprano Martha Guth, baritone Tyler Duncan alongside pianists Erika Switzer and Michael Brofman.  

Future performances of Earthquakes & Islands will take place across Canada in 2017 as part of the country's 150th anniversary celebration.
