If you listened in today from 12-2pm, you would have heard the soothing sounds of Benoit Chaput (with the behind the scenes help from Myriam Gendron) streaming from our studios. The pair delivered a myriad of folk and underground music, perfect for a cloudy and calm afternoon. Unfortunately, it was their last day hosting If You Got Ears here at CKUT, but you can always catch the previous episodes from this month on our archives.
Next month’s residency is with Jen Reimer and Max Stein, who will be dedicating their residency to incorporating many different musical textures with the sounds of the city~~
Today was a good day here at CKUT, beautiful weather and great programming combined to create an awesome vibe. Benoit Chaput hosted If You Got Ears (which airs every Wednesday from 12-2pm) and presented us with some quality folk tunes and other selections. Benoit is hosting If You Got Ears this month with Myriam Gendron, a talented musician, who although unfortunately can’t make it into the studio live is a driving force in the show. September is coming to a close though, so don’t miss their last episode next Wednesday or you’ll be full of regret~~
The dark, droning, quirky massacre that is Drainolith’s “Hysteria” has obtained a certain aesthetic that can only possibly be described as Montreal underground. The combination of Alexander Moskos’ wild array of unique talents has produced a genre-smashing ensemble sound culminating in an album that is simply marvelous across the board and especially perfect for the CKUT scene.

Montreal-based music producer PHI (Patrick Haggart Ippersiel) has crafted an electronic journey with his sophomore album Progression. Underneath the pretty piano in the opening track is a tension that remains until the last note of the record, swelling and receding but never quite going away. It’s this tension, combined with the slick production, that ties the album together as the songs flow effortlessly across the spectrum of electronic music. PHI draws from a diverse catalogue of styles without coming across as indecisive, resulting in an effortless, laid-back sound. The overall feel of the record is more like a contemplative night-time drive than a sweaty dance club, though Searching would not be out of place at 2am on a packed floor. Continue reading
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
