Bruce Petherick Bio

Playing the Piano

Bruce Petherick is a musician, and a creator of Acoustic Spaces living in Calgary, Canada. He has performed music around the world playing various styles from Classical, Jazz, to Musical Theatre. Having always distrusted the idea of the technical virtuoso, his music has matured into a more subtle yet still complex style. His music is based on slower pulses but not restricted to simple harmonic or textual gestures.

In 2016 he attended the Banff Centre for the Arts for a workshop entitled “The Art of Stillness”. During this workshop he made connections with multi-disciplinary artists from around the world and has recently started collaborations with some of these artists exploring stillness, and the Japanese concept of Ma. The first recordings of his Acoustic Spaces were released in 2015, first with “5 Words of Love” and with his extremely successful recording “Raindrops”. A new recording “Winter Stillness” is scheduled to be released in mid-2017
