CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: April 4, 2017

unnamed

Greetings friends,
Last week I was lucky enough to catch a sold-out Leonard Cohen tribute where a whole crew of Montreal artists played renditions of their fave Cohen tracks. It was a pretty special experience, perhaps even more so given that the whole night was a fundraiser to buy a piano for local youth centre Dans La Rue. Many of our programmers, including Li’l Andy (above) and Katie Moore, participated in the event; what a great reminder of the talent we are lucky to have in the city – not to mention right here at CKUT.

Scapes: the Montreal Sessions, April Edition

ckut

During the month April, Jean Cousin, aka Joni Void, will be hosting The Montréal Sessions on CKUT, every Tuesday from 3-5pm, leading up to the release of his forthcoming album Selfless on Constellation Records.

For the Montréal Sessions, Joni Void presents Scapes: a “series of conceptual musical selection experiences.” Immersive mixes that aim to transcend genres and traditional radioplay, instead sounding more like a lucid dream broadcast.

These thematic sonic journeys include: Voxscapes, a vocal-based mix of songs that are almost entirely a-capella/only use voice; Livescapes, a compilation of Montréal live recordings, with a first hour dedicated to recordings made at La Plante/The Plant, an alternative space in which Jean resides and organizes events; Dronescape, focusing on drone and ambient music, including a live performance with other members of La Plante; Cityscape, a soundscape of Montréal with local field recordings and songs that directly reference the city; and finally Filmscape, a collage of diverse film samples, and soundtracks. These episodes will also feature some of Jean’s own music, from his different monikers/projects, even including some unreleased material.

Tune in and Join the Void.
