I just got back from a rad weekend hanging with some pals in Toronto, including fellow CFUV expat/Dale Speaking rep Justin Lanoue. It was great! Toronto often gets a bad rap from other Canadian towns but it’s a pretty fun city to visit. It felt great to chill out on some nice patios, eat great food, and explore some new neighbourhoods. I also devoured an ungodly amount of delicious ice cream, which makes the trip an automatic success in my books.
Hope you’re having a great August too!
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
As part of our ongoing experimental radio residency If You Got Ears, local sound wizard Kara-Lis Coverdale is taking over the CKUT studios every Wednesday in August from noon till 2pm. Coverdale is a composer, musician, and producer who makes multi-layered electronic music rich in melody and spectral intrigue, interrogating divisions between beauty and brutality, physical and virtual, human and machine. Her residency focuses on innovation musics that challenge the languages and borders of tradition to offer unique gateways into worlds we haven’t yet experienced. Want to learn more about her work? Check out this Guardian article, and be sure to catch the audio from her residency on the CKUT archives.
