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!

The jazz-pop-fusion group Jazzotopes, founded in Montréal in 2013 by Mari Sild, an Estonian singer, composer and pianist. The sound and lyrics of Jazzotopes are inspired by the Nordic nature, the beauty of our world, universal love and many things that the words can not describe... The songs are in Estonian, English and French. The group of Jazzotopes is an improvisational formation, always dynamic and full of surprises. One of the underlying philosophies of Jazzotopes music is the wish to protect our natural environment and live in harmony with the nature.
Others about Jazzotopes: "If you love jazz and are looking to hear an extra cool sound, then you really must listen to Jazzotopes. They can best be described as a Nordic Jazz fusion sound."
Hilary Neiman, Harvey Louis Neiman Foundation for Music and Development.
"Silky, wavelike... So full of Baltic good sorcery... Through her fingers she conveys something of the pastoral magic of Estonia and of its maritime energy... with the purity of the Nordic light..."
André Seleanu, Montréal art critic.

Franglais is nothing new to most Montrealers, and is a recurring subject of debate in Quebec press. Now, well-known French music publication Les Inrockuptibles has taken an interest in the recent crop of Quebecois artists rapping and singing in a homegrown mix of Canada's two official languages.
As Le Journal de Montréal reports, Les Inrocks interviews members of Alacair Ensemble and Montreal rap expert Laurent K. Blais, and leads off with an excerpt from Dead Obies' "Montréal $ud". Another of the genre's standard-bearers, Loud Lary Ajust, told the Journal in an earlier interview: "I don't think people in our generation really speak in Franglais. It's more of a Quebecois rap thing. I don't think French is in danger for young people today. We only sing in Franglais for aesthetic reasons."Read full...
