Bradyworks, in collaboration with the SMCQ’s Montreal/New Music festival (MNM), will present a new composition for 100 electric guitars in March 2015. The work, entitled “100 Very Good Reasons Why___”, celebrates the 100th birthday of legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul. To perform this new work, Bradyworks is looking for 80 amateur guitarists to complete its 100-strong electric guitar ensemble called Instruments of Happiness EXTREME. Guitarists should have an interest in exploring new musical ideas. The music, composed by artistic director Tim Brady, is well suited for guitarists with a few years experience, but does not require the ability to read music (though this would help), or to be a virtuoso player. All you need is a good sense of tempo and a steady beat, and the ability to play softly as well as to play loud!
