About

Taktus Duo

Taktus marimba duo is known for their groove-based re-envisioning of classical and contemporary music. Their original marimba arrangements of minimalist music have been described as “virtuosic” (Gapplegate Music), “impeccable and articulate” (The WholeNote Magazine), and ”daring” (I Care If you Listen). Their most recent album, Mirrored Glass, released in January 2020, received critical acclaim from reviewers: “Harrison and Smith sensitively render the complex interplay of solo and accompanying voices with virtuoso panache” (WholeNote) and “the details and nuance will keep you coming back for more” (East Mag). Mirrored Glass also earned a spot on the CBC’s “Top 20 Classical Albums of 2020” and a nomination for “Instrumental Recording of the Year” at the ECMA’s. Taktus has performed across Canada in classical chamber concert series, new music venues, and indie music festivals. Their recording of Glass Houses No. 13 was choreographed by the Artistic Director of the Toronto Dance Theatre, Christopher House, and featured in dance performances across Canada and internationally.
