We’ve got a very special episode of If You Got Ears lined up today: CKUT alumni Andrea-Jane Cornell will be improvising a work she calls ‘Fall to Pieces’, incorporating accordion and a whole table full of pedals and effects. She’s sitting in the music office beside me as I type, droning lovely sounds out of her accordion, and if this acoustic warmup is any indication this performance is gonna be real special. Tune in today, noon-2pm live at 90.3FM in Montreal or online at ckut.ca
Had a super busy but great weekend – CKUT celebrated its 25th anniversary on the FM dial with a party for the ages (complete with a community orcHERstra playing a percussion-heavy, punked-out version of a cult fave Italian opera jam), had a great visit with a lovely former CKUT intern from Germany + her bff as they cruised through Montreal, and was wowed by the tales of a few colleagues at a real nice short story reading/performance series on Friday evening. The whole while I’ve been trying to amp up my immune system as I fend off a wicked cold and prepping for a show tonight with CKUT pals AJ Cornell & Eyle of Pine (y’all remember AJ, right?) – both excited and nervous to share a stage with those two.
Gonna be in NYC over the weekend so if you’re around and wanna hang, give me a shout.

Lots of weirdness in the studio today as we segued metal into noise into musique concrete into dance into a killer set from Montreal’s raucous and irresistible Public Transit (who are playing a show at Casa on Tuesday alongside avant garde stalwarts AJ Cornell and Enfant Magique)

Local blooze-rockers BODYSHAKES tore it up a week or two back in one of the Rutherford Physics labs, and we were onsite alongside TVM capturing the madness.

We’ve got a very special episode of If You Got Ears lined up today: tune in from noon till 2pm when local sonic wizard Frank de Gallo, of Hobo Cubes (among other) fame, joins our May curator Ryan D. in the studio for a live performance. Since Frank is a bit of a musical chameleon, it’s not even fair to give you a heads up about what kind of sounds to expect: you’ll have to listen in and find out for yourself what kind of audio tricks he has up his sleeve this time around.
