"ON THE COVER: Evensong (2018) by Lou Sheppard, who recently made the 2021 long list for the prestigious Sobey Art Award. Congratulations Lou!
This issue contains a special 30-page section that explores climate emergency through the stories of nine sound and music artists, whose creative work expands our understanding of ecological loss and its environmental and emotional impact. The section was coedited by Musicworks contributing editor Monica Pearce and editor Jennie Punter.
Shifting the Narrative
The theme is extended with a profile of nature-facing Vancouver-Island electronic-music imprint Silent Season . . .
. . . and a story about Victoria-based Scrap Arts Music, where invented percussion instruments built from industrial scrap play beautiful, energetic compositions.
We're grateful to the coast-to-coast community of contributors, artists, and supporters who keep us connected and inspired year round. Please consider supporting creative writing about adventurous music with a subscription to Musicworks or buy a single copy from our Shop. The digital version is currently available from Magzter.
Also in this issue: We interview three music artists who are also active "connectors" in their communities, creating innovative programming and contexts for experimental music artists to present their works and ideas.
Ashley Au (Winnipeg) is a genre-fluid bassist, emerging opera composer, and multitasking arts worker who became director of Cluster New Music and Integrated Arts Festival in 2020.
James Goddard (Montreal) is an adventurous saxophonist and independent concert promoter, who this part years has been sharing resources to help get artists streaming for their fans and spearheading Suoni TV, a livestreamed concert series housed in Sala Rossa that is now in its second season.
David Psutka (Toronto) is a producer who takes a free-form, often collaborative approach to making music through his label Halocline Trance and solo projects, such as composing 100 miniscores for Karen Karen Vanderborght's SnapChat documentary Grey Matter AV."
