Art’s Birthday was originally proposed in 1964 by artist Robert Filiou as a celebration of all things Art. Ever since that fateful year, arts organizations all over the world celebrate Art’s Birthday with parties and performances. CKUT has produced special programming in celebration of Art’s Birthday since 2007.
According to our calculations, Art will be turning 1,000,047 this year, and once again CKUT will be ringing in the occasion with a variety of stunning performances. From the serious to the silly, the night will be a celebration of Art in all its varieties.
This year’s installment will feature Carodiaro, Esther Splett, Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, McGill-based acapella ensemble The Chromatones, and the legendary CKUT Circus Work Shirt.
See y’all at Casa del Popolo (4873 St-Laurent) this Sunday.
Doors are, 9:00 music at 9:30.
8-10$ — a fundraiser for CKUT!
On Thursday, September 26th the CKUT Circuit Workshop brought its array of homemade and home-modded electronics to the stage of Brasserie Beaubien for a performance as part of this year’s Pop Montreal. For those of you who caught the show, you’ll know how magical the sounds were; for everyone else, we encourage you to check out the recording below and soak in the noise. Keep an eye out for future performances as well, as the workshop is often out & about conjuring sounds in Montreal’s underground. Open ears will be rewarded.
In this piece, the CKUT Circuit Workshop is Elena, James, Lawrence, Marc, Pietro, Sima, Yen-Chao.
