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.

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.

Former LE FLY PAN AM bassist/Los Discos Enfantasmes founder Jean-Sébastien Truchy plays live on CKUT's If You Got Ears. In the studio, JS' operatic tenor shook the room, inside the headphone mix: lynchian soundscapes, eerie and beautiful.

In the decade that he has called Montreal home, Nick Kuepfer has ventured through a wide range of sonic territory: from playing with infamous noise rockers AIDS Wolf to layering minimal guitar compositions with ambient drones, his contributions to the city's musical community are stunning in both their quality and diversity of sound. Keeping with his tradition of collaging unlikely sonic textures, Nick's live performance during the Constellation Records-curated Montreal Sessions found him alternately plucking and bowing an acoustic guitar over unearthly tape loops. At once rich and subtle, this piece will reward those who listen closely.
