Montreal-based art collective and label Kohlenstoff ended its residency at CKUT this week.
The label, which has already released 20 records, seeks to increase the visibility of local composers who produce, but don’t limit themselves to electro, noise, ambient and musique actuelle.
Every Wednesday for the past month, If you Got Ears saw a variety of hosts play music from Kohlenstoff’s catalogue, and welcome live performances from the collective’s artists, such as Dominc Thibault, Political Ritual, Hazzy Montage Mystique, and JF Bleu Ensemble..
Next month, If you got Ears welcomes interdisciplinary composer Kara-lis Coverdale. Coverdale performed at MUTEK this past May, where her immersive and digital installation garnered the public’s attention. When she is not exploring post-sacred sounds and musique concrete, she is an organist and music director at St. John’s Church, in Montreal.
Hi radio buddies,
Hope you are doing well & staying cool — if your town is anything like Montreal, it’s about a million degrees outside. I’ve been drinking a ridiculous amount of cold brew and eating too much ice cream as coping mechanisms, but I feel pretty great about it. Whatever gets you through, y’know?
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
We’re super psyched to be bringing new local label Egg Paper Factory into the CKUT master studio to host & curate The Montreal Sessions for the month of August. Founded in 2014 by Josh Boguski, Alex Bourque, Raff McMahan and Alex Lavoie, the label aims to showcase a finely curated collection of Canadian experimental music in a variety of styles. Since its foundation, Egg Paper has released 13 albums on cassette in limited run, including critically acclaimed records by Un Blonde, Telstar Drugs, and Whitney K. The label has also hosted a series of concerts, and will be hosting a showcase during POP Montreal in September. Their residency, which they’ve ceremoniously dubbed Egg Radio, will feature on-air interviews with Canadian bands, artist profiles, as well as premieres of new music from the label. The show will also feature comedic skits from the hosts, and regular segments featuring the hosts’ favourite music from the Canadian and international music community respectively. Catch it every Tuesday in August from 3-5pm EST.
