The final issue of our 40th anniversary year features first-person stories, collaborative creativity, and a hint of chocolate! Open wide as Darcy Spidle, aka chik white, describes his obsession with the puny, ancient, pancultural instrument known as the jaw harp and his avant-garde performance style. Chart the challenges and emotions of clarinettist/writer Heather Roche as she develops a new piece for solo bass clarinet with composer Luke Nickel. Tag along with trumpeter Lina Allemano into the free-jazz communities of Toronto and Berlin, and encounter the fiercely individual musical forms of composer/chocolatier André Cormier. Discover saxophonist Joseph Shabason’s conversational modes, the sonic collages of Thanya Iyer, and the mind-blowing effect of a field of competitive bagpipers. Learn about the historic graphic score, performance, and recording project initiated by Edmonton’s Ociciwan Contemporary Art Collective, which saw collaboration between local musicians and Navajo composer Raven Chacon.
On the CD: Nine new or previously unreleased tracks from artists in the Winter 2018/19 issue.
