“It’s like the deconstruction of the song, y’know”


Concept 9 – En Dansant avec Vigneault

Montreal-based percussionist Pierre Béluse founded Concept Neuf in 1978, the group focused on percussion arrangements of popular music.  As the title suggests this track takes its cues from Québecois legend Gilles Vigneault.

Justin Beiber – U Smile (shamantis rmx – slowed 800%)

Over the last few years the Stratford Ontario born Bieber has skyrocketed to the upper echelons of the music business with his light R&B inflected pop music. Digitally Slowed down what was once highly accessible pop becomes ruminative post-rock.

Brian Joseph Davis – All You Get From Love is 22 Love Songs

Brian Joseph Davis is a Brooklyn-based artist. His work in sound art has featured cacophonous combinations of hit singles and parodistic combinations of film tag-lines. 22 Love Songs is just what it sounds like.

Grant Green – Sometimes I feel like a Motherless Child

Grant Green was one of the great jazz guitarists. He appears on this recording accompanied by Ben Dixon on drums and Big John Patton on organ, an unconventional trio.  Despite the propensity for jazz organ to bring out the muzakality of jazz, this rendition of Motherless Child remains somber.

Charles Gayle – Amazing Grace/ Go Down Moses / Motherless Child

This is a strangely (for Gayle) restrained free-jazz medley from 1997’s Delivered. Once again the sad beauty of Motherless Child shines through and through.

Halim El-Dabh – the wire recorder piece

Recorded in 1944 this is an excerpt from the piece “Expression of Zaar” an attempt by the composer to capture the true sound of the Egyptian spirit-summoning Zaar ritual.  The title alludes to the fact that it was recorded using a wire-recorder the sounds were than manipulated.

Terry Riley – You’re Nogood

A live performance, recorded in 1968, combining Moogs and tape reels of Harvey Averne’s “You’re NoGood”.  Riley chops and screws before anyone had even thought to apply those terms to music.

Thin Gaze – Never Change / Black Collar / Strathcona@Nite / Geisty / medley

Vancouver-based musician Thin Gaze offered up some of his crooked re-contextualized West Coast Croon-n-B live in-studio

The Offset: Spectacles – Back in the Hole

Part of the burgeoning DIY “indie” culture movement in China.  The Offset: Spectacles insist on performing Cantonese No-Wave in Shanghai. 

Happiness is… – Pointy Shoes

Happiness is… is a solo project from Kingston artist and SouB? Ringleader MichaelDavidge. His performances and audio interventions have involved everything from re-interpretations of cinematic scores, to a new arrangement of an Erik Satie piece. As Happiness is… he combines tape loops and skronk saxophone to hallucinatory


Caymans – How to print money

A much-loved trio out of Ottawa, they play warped rock and roll.
