Tamayugé Live on Chaud Pour Le Mont Stone January 11, 2018

Tamayugé, the duo of Tamara Filyavich (electronics) and Maya Kuroki (voice) joined Francis Letourneau on Chaud Pour Le Monte Stone on January 12, 2018.

The performance is a great example of the kind of work they've been doing around the city; combinging raw electronics and post-lingual vocal improvisations.

Chris Corsano & Mette Rasmussen Live on New Shit

What happens when two of free jazz's most talented names face off live in the CKUT studio? Mette plays sax and Chris plays drums, and he result is a beautiful cacaphony. It's the spirit of punk and the deft skill of jazz tradition. It's those fast high notes, spilling rapid-fire from the saxophone, overtop of clattering toms and minute bursts of cymbal crash. Rolling into the second piece, things get nice & sprawled-out, the sax blowing at less of a breakneck speed but adopting a richer texture before moving back into fast (and we mean FAST) territory. 

It's unquestionable that Corsano and Rasmussen are two figured who have already carved out significant artistic niches for themselves; now, as a duo, they prove even further why the world should be paying serious attention to their sounds.

Nick Kuepfer live on The Montreal Sessions

Longtime CKUT favourite Nick Kuepfer works his magic yet again, summoning a whole range of otherworldly sounds out of tape loops and effects. While he's graced CKUT ears with in-studio performances in the past, this one is extra special -- it comes to us courtesy of the curatorial genius behing the Island Frequencies concert series, who took over the Montreal Sessions for the month of October 2014. While the whole month was a stunner, this performance in particular stood out to us: the warbly sped-up loops pitted against jittery electronics left us disoriented in the best way possible. It's not for the faint of heart, but what good music is these days?

Myriam Gendron Live on New Shit

Making her recording debut with the words of Dorothy Parker set to acoustic guitar, Myriam Gendron explores the depths of what can be done with strings and voice. It is honest and disarming, varying between light-hearted strums and melancholic folk influences that mirror the bittersweet wit of Parker's own works. Gendron falls squarely into a tradition of earnest folk songwriters: her music is unassuming yet heartfelt, possessing a quiet beauty that reveals itself to listeners over repeated plays. We have the feeling Parker would be just as satisfied with Gendron's work as we are.

Joshua Zubot & Luke Loseth on If You Got Ears

Josh Zubot is Montreal's man-about-town for violin. Playing everything from free jazz to bluegrass, you can find his name in the credits of countless local projects: Subtle Lip Can, Ensemble Supermusique, Land of Kush, and the list goes on... 

But now, Mr. Zubot is giving the violin a different spin. Enter Luke Loseth: the multi-instrumentalist behind Holobody and all-around electronics wizard gave Zubot's violin the special treatment with a healthy dose of live processing. The two musicians had never met before, and in true experimental fashion were put in a room and given the sole instruction of "make something." The resulting piece finds the traditional instrument being taken in a wholly different direction, with layers of effects bending its pitch and timbre into a finale of noisy cacaphony.

Hazy Montagne Mystique on Underground Sounds

A fusion of voice and electronics, ancient songs and modern technology, Hazy Montagne Mystique blends an array of synthesized noises while never losing its lively and deeply human essence. Whether it's the processed rhythms that bear striking resemblance to the human heartbeat or the otherworldly vocal tones that appear and disappear instantly within a song, there is something unique about the way HMM bridges the gap between the organic and the mechanic. You could call it ethereal but that doesn't quite do it justice. Perhaps it's best to just open your ears good and wide and let the music take you where it will.

Echo Beach on CKUT's If You Got Ears

Echo Beach, aka Montreal sound sculptor extraordinaire Julie Matson, is no stranger to CKUT. She's joined us for performances on Venus and Modular Systems in the past, and now she's back with a couple new gems from a live in-studio on experimental program If You Got Ears. Throughout both songs her signature rich tones are omnipresent, buzzing around hushed vocals and hovering suspended yet wholly encompassing. Subtle movements in pitch and timbre create an array of textures cut through by playful synth bleeps. Open your ears and let it wash over you.

Steve Jr. Live on New Shit

Steve Jr. make a hell of a lot of noise for a duo. Ever since getting their latest self-released tape here at the ol' CKUT, folks have been going crazy over their heavy psych jams. Together, Corbin and Gleb meld crushing yet infinitely catchy riffs with pounding drums and wailed vocals and the result is a truly impressive wall of sound. We were thrilled to have them join us for an in-studio performance during New Shit, even though their volume shook the room enough to make CDs fall off shelves. We forgive 'em.
