Recording: Dialectica

Artist: Dialectica

Song: The Provider [composer: Shannon Graham]

Recorded at Yonge-Dundas Square (Intersection – Day 3), September 2, 2017.

Dialectica - The Provider

In recent years, the Intersection Festival would normally consist of a paid concert, usually the night before the day-long extravaganza in Yonge-Dundas Square. This year, however, under the continued guidance of Burn Down The Capital's Tad Michalak the festival expanded to four events, including a pair of concerts at The Jam Factory. The day-long marathon in the concrete canyon of commerce remains at the festival's heart, though, exploring the frissons of experiencing strange and occasionally abrasive sounds competing with the city's mersh heartbeat.

This classical-meets-jazz sax quartet (consisting of Shannon Graham, Chelsea McBride, Olivia Shortt, and Samantha Etchegary) was a user-friendly way to ease the passers-by into the day's proceedings, with philosophical inquiries cloaked in tunes and mambos mixing with the scream of passing sirens.
