Throughout November Small Scale Music has graciously hosted If You Got Ears, and they’ve delivered quite the experience. Small Scale Music is based right here in Montreal and focuses mostly on improvisational and experimental music. It was this kind of sound that Raphael Foisy, the host of this month’s show, brought to the table. Raphael plays bass in the bands Brick Quartet, Bord à Bord, Ninja Simone and in different improvised music settings. He combined elements from all these unique musical experiences in each of his shows, each of which which you can catch on our archives.
Tune in to Sam Shalabi and Alex Moskos in our studios this December for the next instalment of If You Got Ears (which is going to be bananas). Every Wednesday from 12-2, listen in~~
Yesterday’s If You Got Ears was again hosted by the wonderful Raphael Foisy for Small Scale Music, and this time he was joined by French native Émilie Mouchous, a sound artist based in Montreal who creates her own instruments. She has hosted special programs here at CKUT since 2008, collaborating with Andrea-Jane Cornell on multiple occasions. During this show she co-hosted If You Got Ears to bring Montreal some pretty cool sounds and rhythms.
Émilie Mouchous explores sound through radiophonics, homemade electronic instruments, and improvisation. She incorporates vocals, web art, formal sound, and movement into shared sound spaces. Her work is highly praised and has been featured at festivals around the world, such as BENT Festival NY, Kunstradio in Vienna, Radio LX festival de arte radio in Lisbon, and Suoni per il popolo, AKOUSMA, and Mutek here in Montreal.
Tune into If You Got Ears on Wednesdays from 12-2 pm for more!
