Chandelle Rimmer & Tom Van Seters
Canadian jazz musicians Chandelle Rimmer and Tom Van Seters are both well versed in the Canadian jazz scene, having shared the stage with numerous distinguished musicians over the past 25 years. Both Tom and Chandelle are faculty members in the Department of Music at MacEwan University, and recently released their first collaborative project, Stillness Falls, through the university’s record label, Bent River Records.
When they first started working together, they decided that they wanted to collaborate not only as performers, but also as composers. They were delighted to discover that in many ways it was easier than writing music in isolation. Sharing in the responsibilities for a composition’s creation and development freed them up in a way that often led to wonderfully unpredictable outcomes.
