An Alternate History of Canadian Electronic Music (1956–1981)
Curated by Keith Fullerton Whitman (US/AU)
October 4 – November 3
Poolside Gallery, Video Pool Media Arts Centre, 221-100 Arthur Street, 2nd Floor
Free | Wednesday–Saturday 12:00–5:00 PM
During the course of this three-hour program, the listener will be drawn into the deepest recesses of early electronic music in Canada, focusing on obscure and transgressive pieces found outside of the usual academic lanes, all from the nascent days where psychedelia, sound poetry, experimental film and emerging audio and video technologies were all being explored with equal aplomb. The work of composers and musicians such as Wayne Carr, Robert Bauer, Lloyd Burritt, and Marcelle Deschênes will be explored, along with seldom heard pieces by storied figures such as Micheline Coulombe Saint-Marcoux, Rudolf Komorous, Ann Southam, Alain Clavier, Michel Longtin, and Norman McLaren.
We invite you to spend some time in our listening lounge space created specially for this occasion at Poolside Gallery through the generous sponsorship of EQ3. This playlist will also be presented as a Sunday series on CKUW 95.9 FM through October and November beginning on October 14.
This project was curated and coordinated by American artist and enthusiastic music researcher Keith Fullerton Whitman. From 2003 to 2015, he helmed the highly specialized experimental music distributor Mimaroglu Music and since 2016 has run online distribution Broken-Music.
Presented in partnership with Video Pool Media Art Centre and CKUW.
