The artists in the Fall 2019 issue expand their perspectives through innovative collaborations and combos—they just can’t get enough! Serbian-born Canadian composer Ana Sokolović creates fantastical, imaginary world in operas, chamber music, instrumental, orchestral, and interarts works. If you don’t know madcap transcendentalist, animal-friendly avant-gardist, and earworm composer Charlie Morrow you will after this issue. Prodigiously talented Egyptian singer-producer-instrumentalist Nadah El Shazly’s makes transcendent music from a host of unlikely influences. Prodigious African American New Age legend Laraaji joyfully performs and records around the world. Nova Scotia guitarist Amy Brandon combines composition with other forms of musical invention, drawn from her improvisation and electronics work. Vancouver’s William Kuo, a 2018 Gaudeamus Award nominee, brings limitless sonic and sculptural imagination to his practice. Yellowknife-based electronic music artist Sami Blanco and Ottawa’s Juno-winning Silla and Rise are creating innovative, rhythmic soundscapes. Montreal’s Mystery & Wonder Records delivers handmade, in-your-face music.
On the CD: Fourteen new or previously unreleased tracks from artists in the Fall 2019 issue.
