THE MURRAY STREET BAND TURNS 25!

Tune in to Jazz Euphorium on August 24th 2011. Lawrence Joseph will be hosting the programme
live from the Sala Rossa where the Murray Street Band will be blowing the roof off in celebrations
of the ensemble's 25th anniversary.
Founded and guided by drummer/artist extraordinaire John Heward,
the Murray Sreet Band celebrates improvisation in its most free and intuitive forms. Over the years
the MSB has served as both a training ground for some of Montreal’s most accomplished improvisers,
and a setting for established musicians to explore their more experimental impulses. Members of the
MSB have come from backgrounds in puck, rock, jazz, world music, new music and everything betwixt
and between, unified only by a willingness to stretch their music horizons collectively and sympathetically.
Over the years the MSB has grown from a midsized ensemble to its present strength of over ten members,
making it one of the largest free improvising ensembles around.

LISTEN to the program, the first hour features recorded music by John Heward
and the second hour is live from the Sala Rossa

MAGIC SOUND MOUNTAIN - JULY 23, 3PM AND 7PM


Come out to the magic sound mountain on Saturday July 23.
for a sound installation beneath a canopy of trees in the forest
beside de Belvedere Kondiaronk Lookout atop Mount Royal. Follow
signs for the Magic Sound Mountian or follow the sounds of whispers
and reverberations coming from 10 discrete diy speakers places
in the forest. Ten sound artists will be presenting single and multi channel compositions.
There will be two presentations one at 3pm the other at 7pm

PROGRAMME OF AUDIO PIECES:

Invisible Audio: Nature is becoming invisible and is replaced by visible disposable products. For the piece, speakers will be put in and around a fake tree placed in the middle of nature.  Fabricated or Real ? Machinery or Humanity? Questioning the role of us as a community where nature is becoming a commodity in neighborhoods to suit the trends and needs of the current generation.  "are we taking a step back? forward? cycle." This piece was created by t+l (television longplay). Tony and Liz are instruments from the magic sound box. They are sound artists mixing electro acoustics, music, spoken word and radio together. Check it out.

Forest Singing: The forest sings, and as it shifts from natural to digital, can you tell who is out of their element? By Nathaly Arraiz describes herself as being between a sound artist and a sound tech; she likes to observe, interpret and create.

“3 dialogues” (excerpts): This is a demonstration of some of Generic Media Group's work in the field of nonspecific audio. Hundreds of dialogues from various films were analyzed to create a statistical model of contemporary conversations. From this model, excerpts from 6 dialogues were rendered. Generic Media Group provides services for those in need of nonspecific audio, video and text. Current projects include setting up clients with internet radio stations that offer unlimited access to guitar solos, sad music and domestic dialogues.

Suð: Internal natural buzzings. Fjóla Evans is a cellist and sound-arranger living in Montréal, Canada.

piwiwounnnwooowoounnnng Field recordings of native North American forest creatures mingle with foreign species. Bird song, whispers, spring peepers, Cicadas cicadas, electronic interventions, wind in the trees,and tambura. 4 channel piece, by andrea-jane cornell. Andrea-jane makes ambiances ferroviare-aquatique, clochettes-tiques, oiseau hydrophone, grenouilles grouillant with objects and field recordings.

Rules of Nature: An excursion in the wilderness, a walk in the woods: what freedom, what a complete detachment from the structure of our everyday lives. But is this really how it feels?  Our behaviour in these "wild" spaces is often so controlled that our actions are even more organized and limited than usual, by Dominique Ferraton. Dominique spends much of her time wandering in empty lots, knitting mittens, winding film in old cameras and creating sonic quilts made of found sounds and field recordings.

Priscault Sounds: Cette pièce a été composée et pensée par les jeunes musiciens ( àgés de 8 à 17 ans) du Camp musical de Lanaudière. Nous avons travaillé avec leurs sons, leur musique, leurs voix et leurs histoires - leurs sons et musiques forment une de trame de base, et leurs voix, leurs histoires viennent ponctuer le tout.  Emanuelle Majeau-Bettez est une pianiste originaire de la région de Lanaudière, Charles Beaudoin est pianiste et compositeur originaire de la Montérégie et Félix Schneller est un compositeur qui se dirige désormais vers la philosophie. Tous trois ont travaillé avec les jeunes musiciens du Camp musical de Lanaudière pour la composition de cette pièce.

Echoes from the Lincolnshire Poacher/Somewhere in the Western Desert: Two pieces in one. This piece uses field recordings, recorded instruments, recordings from The Conet Project, and a poem written by E.Y. Barnard, Lieutenant entitled there was the richness.... The poem was taken from Poems from the desert (1944), a collection of poems written by fighting men in the Eighth Army. The poem was translated and recited by Jacinthe Dupuis (French), Ali Gorji (Arabic, not included in final edit), and recited in English by Neil Griffith; they all deserve a huge thanks! Alanna Cecelia Jean MacNevin enjoys finding sounds and source materials that delight her and utilizing these materials to explore the process of making a variety of art.

*NB workshops presented in only one language will have whisper translation towards english and french.

SCHEDULE

BLOC 1 (10:00-11:30am)

"An Introduction to the theory of tech security" with Koumbit (FR). An introduction to basic concepts in computer security, demonstrating key issues and threats. The goal is to be able to make informed choices in computer security and to keep abreast of key threats and best practices. The target audience is people with minimal computer experience.

"How to build a sound system" with Montreal Sound Team (EN, FR). Besides the fact that setting up live sound is an amazing, fun and powerful skill to have, it's also important that more people in the activist community have this knowledge. For years, a small handful of people have been setting up sound for demos, rallies and fundraisers. But what happens when those people leave town or burn out? Let's spread the knowledge! Join Soundteam for a workshop on rad sound reinforcement.

Bloc 2 (11:45am-1:15pm)

Live Radio: Workshop by CKUT 90.3fm (EN/FR). This workshop will take place in the hall on the first floor. Part one will include training in live radio setup and production followed by the live radio show running from 2-4pm.

"Basic Tech Security: the why and how of secure communication, anonymization and data storage by Anarchist Tech Support," includes installing software on people's computers (EN). In the digital age, intelligence gathering is generalized and automatic. Whether or not you are a person of interest ot those in positions of power, your emails, instant messenger conversations, search terms, and browsing history are being permanently recorded by the likes of Google, Facebook, Bell, and other. Information held by profit-driven corportations can be accessed by agents fo the state at almost any time, eithere through legal action or (more often) simply by asking. In the context of struggle, it is imperative that we control our information because it can quickly be used against us. At the same time, we must not give up one of our best weapons: the ability to communicate quickly and effectively through electronic means. This workshop aims to help secure communications without giving up efficacy, make our communitites and our lives more impervious to data mining and surveillance, and make our struggles more effective.

FM Transmitter Building Workshop-with Radios Populares (EN, FR, SP). Pull back the veil on radio transmission and mass communication by building your own FM radio transmitter. We will pull out our soldering irons and assemble all the parts necessary to start up a live broadcast.

Bloc 3 (1:30pm-3:00pm)

Screenprinting for the Revolution-presented by Sidetracks and the Ste. Emilie Skillshare (EN, FR) Come to this screenprinting crash course and learn how you can use screenprinting as a tool for revolution. We'll learn about screens, emulsion, image preparation, paper and fabric printing, basic image registration and all the rad projects you and your affinity group can do.

Bloc 4 (3:15-5:00pm)

"Radio and Resistance: Latin American Solidarity Model" featuring Radio Populares (based in Chicago, US) (EN) Throughout Latin America, Radios Populares works in solidarity with communitites struggling for social justice to amplify voices and affect social change. We will discuss the improtance of having communities determine development according to their needs and priorities, as will as using grassroots media outside mainstream outlets to inform and empower communities.

BRIAN -VS- BRIAN ON THE B SIDES



Brian Eno - Cultural Guru, Musical Alchemist, Non-Musician.
Tune into the B-Sides on April 4th 4-7am Listen to the ARCHIVE
Take the Survey - who do you like better Brian Eno or Brian Ferry?

It's not with ease that anyone foolhardy enough to tackle a *Brain(*I'll leave this typo
in tact. Some would argue that he is a musical genius!) Eno bio conjures up a description
of his expansive career…And, you'll see no such bravery here.

His most renown role as a rock star, albeit brief, was the flamboyant sound technician in the
Bryan Ferry lead, Roxy Music. Since his departure in 1973, Eno's had his hand in just about
everything. Possessing, a voracious appetite for music, Eno' s produced everything from,
no wave, free jazz, to pure unadulterated pop. One of his longest standing projects early in
his career on the Obscure label stemmed from Eno's relationship to contemporary experimental
musicians such as Michael Nyman, Gavin Bryars and Cornelius Cardew as well as
the influences of Steve Reich and his experiments with phase shifting.

The father of celebrated Montreal-based DJ and music historian Andy Williams, Fritz was on one of the first ships (The Santa Maria) of Jamaican migrants which sailed to England in 1957. In our extended interview, he spoke about the socio-economic conditions that early Jamaican migrants to the UK were forced to live under (baaaad baaad housing, lack of jobs), the club scene in the Midlands, fashion, and of course, reggae music!

Not only an artist with the celebrated hip-hop ensemble Nomadic Massive and a regular contributor to Community Contact, Quebec's major English-language black community newspaper, Nantali is an alternative educator using hip-hop culture as a contemporary educational tool. While institutional education tends to stick to set curricula and rigid social codes, Indongo, co-founder with Maryse Legagneur, of the “Hip Hop No Pop”program has been invited to tour high-schools and CEGEP campuses and teach workshops on more relevant topics to youth today, including the history of hip-hop, sexuality and language.

Nantali will join us live in the CKUT studios to discuss West Indian diasporas in Montreal, and using music as a tool for education and social change.

RADIO IS DEAD? PROTEST HOUR: KEEP CKLN ON THE AIRWAVES, MON, JAN 31, 2-3PM & MON, FEB 7, 2-3PM


Today, the program's name, Radio Is Dead?, is sadly and aptly appropriate, as we dedicate our broadcast to our sister station in Toronto - CKLN 88.1 FM. We stand in solidarity with CKLN in the face of the Canadian Radio, Television and Telecommunications Commission's decision to revoke Toronto's first campus radio station's license. This Friday, the station was given two weeks before being forced to shut down operations. In 2007 the CRTC renewed CKLN's license for seven years.
