Jessica Moss, live at Winnipeg New Music Festival 2017
From

From central Canada, hear recordings from the 2017 edition of the annual Winnigpeg New Music Festival, curated by composer Matthew Patton. Listen to music in the continuous mode from Canadian composer and pianist Lubomyr Melnyk (of Ukrainian origin), who is now based in Sweden. This performance was recorded live at “The Bay” in Winnipeg, the basement of the Hudson's Bay Department store, which is said to be haunted.

Then hear music from Montreal violinist and composer Jessica Moss, also recorded at The Bay, her multi-movement work, “Entire Populations.” Moss has, for years, been part of the cult post-punk band Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra. In this work, she combines violin and electronics, along with minimalist vocals to create “elegiac durational music at the intersection of neo-classicism, soundtrack, electronic, art-punk and avant-folk.” (Constellation Records)

Plus, hear a work by William Basinski, recorded at the Centennial Concert Hall, built around the repetition of recorded sound, which changes in subtle ways over time.
