The Fall 2020 issue comes fully loaded with guitars! Tlicho Dene interdisciplinary artist Casey Koyczan connects culture, technology, and nature in his future-forward installation art, and performs live-looping guitar as NÀHGĄ. Guitarist/composer Amy Brandon surveys the history and influence of guitar events and electronic-music studios that sparked new ideas in Canadian guitar composition in the 1970s. Experimental pedal steel virtuoso Susan Alcorn talks about moving from country-music to improvisation, activism, and her latest collaborations. Berlin-based Canadian guitarist, composer, and genre agnostic Aidan Baker discusses his deconstructive style, appetite for collaboration, and DIY ethos. We profile Montreal audio experimentalist Markus Lake (aka Markus Floats) and Montreal lo-fi stylist Catherine Debard (aka YlangYlang). Discover Mohawk experimental guitarist Eliza Kavtion; Vancouver bowed-guitarist C. Diab, a new virtual collaborative project to create music for Arkora ensemble; and a new biography of jazz-guitar innovator Sonny Greenwich.
On the CD: 11 tracks of new and previously unreleased music from artists in the Fall 2020 issue.
Music is helping people get through hard times. We hope this issue will do that for readers with curious ears.
