Tune in to Jazz Euphorium on August 24th 2011. Lawrence Joseph will be hosting the programme
live from the Sala Rossa where the Murray Street Band will be blowing the roof off in celebrations
of the ensemble's 25th anniversary.
Founded and guided by drummer/artist extraordinaire John Heward,
the Murray Sreet Band celebrates improvisation in its most free and intuitive forms. Over the years
the MSB has served as both a training ground for some of Montreal’s most accomplished improvisers,
and a setting for established musicians to explore their more experimental impulses. Members of the
MSB have come from backgrounds in puck, rock, jazz, world music, new music and everything betwixt
and between, unified only by a willingness to stretch their music horizons collectively and sympathetically.
Over the years the MSB has grown from a midsized ensemble to its present strength of over ten members,
making it one of the largest free improvising ensembles around.
LISTEN to the program, the first hour features recorded music by John Heward
and the second hour is live from the Sala Rossa

Come out to the magic sound mountain on Saturday July 23.
for a sound installation beneath a canopy of trees in the forest
beside de Belvedere Kondiaronk Lookout atop Mount Royal. Follow
signs for the Magic Sound Mountian or follow the sounds of whispers
and reverberations coming from 10 discrete diy speakers places
in the forest. Ten sound artists will be presenting single and multi channel compositions.
There will be two presentations one at 3pm the other at 7pm
PROGRAMME OF AUDIO PIECES:
Invisible Audio: Nature is becoming invisible and is replaced by visible disposable products. For the piece, speakers will be put in and around a fake tree placed in the middle of nature. Fabricated or Real ? Machinery or Humanity? Questioning the role of us as a community where nature is becoming a commodity in neighborhoods to suit the trends and needs of the current generation. "are we taking a step back? forward? cycle." This piece was created by t+l (television longplay). Tony and Liz are instruments from the magic sound box. They are sound artists mixing electro acoustics, music, spoken word and radio together. Check it out.
Forest Singing: The forest sings, and as it shifts from natural to digital, can you tell who is out of their element? By Nathaly Arraiz describes herself as being between a sound artist and a sound tech; she likes to observe, interpret and create.
“3 dialogues” (excerpts): This is a demonstration of some of Generic Media Group's work in the field of nonspecific audio. Hundreds of dialogues from various films were analyzed to create a statistical model of contemporary conversations. From this model, excerpts from 6 dialogues were rendered. Generic Media Group provides services for those in need of nonspecific audio, video and text. Current projects include setting up clients with internet radio stations that offer unlimited access to guitar solos, sad music and domestic dialogues.
Suð: Internal natural buzzings. Fjóla Evans is a cellist and sound-arranger living in Montréal, Canada.
piwiwounnnwooowoounnnng Field recordings of native North American forest creatures mingle with foreign species. Bird song, whispers, spring peepers, Cicadas cicadas, electronic interventions, wind in the trees,and tambura. 4 channel piece, by andrea-jane cornell. Andrea-jane makes ambiances ferroviare-aquatique, clochettes-tiques, oiseau hydrophone, grenouilles grouillant with objects and field recordings.
Rules of Nature: An excursion in the wilderness, a walk in the woods: what freedom, what a complete detachment from the structure of our everyday lives. But is this really how it feels? Our behaviour in these "wild" spaces is often so controlled that our actions are even more organized and limited than usual, by Dominique Ferraton. Dominique spends much of her time wandering in empty lots, knitting mittens, winding film in old cameras and creating sonic quilts made of found sounds and field recordings.
Priscault Sounds: Cette pièce a été composée et pensée par les jeunes musiciens ( àgés de 8 à 17 ans) du Camp musical de Lanaudière. Nous avons travaillé avec leurs sons, leur musique, leurs voix et leurs histoires - leurs sons et musiques forment une de trame de base, et leurs voix, leurs histoires viennent ponctuer le tout. Emanuelle Majeau-Bettez est une pianiste originaire de la région de Lanaudière, Charles Beaudoin est pianiste et compositeur originaire de la Montérégie et Félix Schneller est un compositeur qui se dirige désormais vers la philosophie. Tous trois ont travaillé avec les jeunes musiciens du Camp musical de Lanaudière pour la composition de cette pièce.
Echoes from the Lincolnshire Poacher/Somewhere in the Western Desert: Two pieces in one. This piece uses field recordings, recorded instruments, recordings from The Conet Project, and a poem written by E.Y. Barnard, Lieutenant entitled there was the richness.... The poem was taken from Poems from the desert (1944), a collection of poems written by fighting men in the Eighth Army. The poem was translated and recited by Jacinthe Dupuis (French), Ali Gorji (Arabic, not included in final edit), and recited in English by Neil Griffith; they all deserve a huge thanks! Alanna Cecelia Jean MacNevin enjoys finding sounds and source materials that delight her and utilizing these materials to explore the process of making a variety of art.
