Yep, you read it: Montreal’s very own Nick Kuepfer will be joining us in the studio for today’s Montreal Sessions, armed with a guitar and tape machine to summon his beautiful and otherworldly sounds. This special live performance will mark the end of the Constellation Records-curated month of the Montreal Sessions, and we couldn’t think up a more stunning way to wrap up the series.
From the Constellation website:
Nick Kuepfer is a guitar player who weaves nylon string and electric guitar pieces with live-sampled tape loops, recordings of animals, and drones from various sources. His predominantly wordless music ranges from subtle and static to frantic and abrasive, with a methodical, vigilant sense of experimentation guided by the search for consonance and dissonance with the sounds of “nature”. He began performing solo, under his own name, in 2009 and occasionally invites guest players to join him.
