Chantale Laplante invites Andrea-Jane Cornell to perform on Chaud pour le Mont Stone, Thursday December 4th 21h to 23h — that’s tonight, y’all. Here’s a little teaser of what to expect when our own music department expat takes over the airwaves with her personal kind of sonic exploration…
Andrea-Jane will be probing the airways in an improvisatory manner using an accordion, radio static, electric ground hum, and hyper amplification. Fluctuating frequencies in the 20 – 30 Hz range will be used as an interfering accompaniment in the continuation of her research on the interactions of low frequency sound signals transmitted over the FM carrier wave. Technical texts about the FM Carrier wave explain that the
15kHz with a certain degree of audio fidelity. In experiments carried out on WGXC in Acra and Hudson NY while in residency at free103point9’s , Andrea-Jane Frequencies
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.
