Andrea-Jane Cornell Performs Live on CKUT Tonight, 9-11pm

image

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 
FM
 band 
is able 
to 
reproduce frequencies 
between
 30Hz
 and
 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 
in 
the
 lower
 end
 saturate 
the 
signal
 and
 prevent
 other
 sounds 
from 
being 
transmitted clearly.
 For
 example 
when 
transmitting 
frequencies 
in 
the
 lower
 end
 of
 the 
spectrum,
 the 
large 
shape 
of 
the
 soundwave 
seem 
to 
saturate 
the
 centre
 frequency,
 leaving 
little 
to 
no 
room 
for 
other
 frequencies 
or
 signals 
to 
pierce
 through.

July’s Montreal Sessions: Randolph Jordan’s 21st Century Schizophone

July on The Montreal Sessions join film and soundscape chef Randolph Jordan for the 21st Century Schizophone, an eclectic meditation on the weird and wonderful consequences of the electroacoustical transmission of sound. The show takes its cue from R. Murray Schafer’s concept of “schizophonia,” referring to the various disorientations found within auditory environments increasingly saturated with technologies of sound reproduction, and will present a wide array of material that critiques, comments upon and celebrates the interventions of sound technologies in our daily lives.
Tune in and you will hear soundscape compositions, film sound collages, epic psychedelic remixes, basement ballyhoo and some chatter featuring the work of artists within the Soppy Bag Records collective and beyond.The first episode will feature Gerstyn Hayward’s A Family Thing, an hour-long piece of composite radio theatre drawing material from film melodrama, science-fiction, noir, horror and many points in between, arranged as a rumination on the medium of radio while exploring the theme of absence in families that have been disrupted by the departure of a single member.  And there will be a handful of surprises along the way.
