Bradyworks Public Auditions for Electric Guitarists

Tue 28 Oct, 2014 - Calls for Submissions

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!

Qubebec show attendance starkly divided along linguistic lines

Wed 01 Oct, 2014 - Spotlight

Slow business in English-language show business? A recent study suggests this might be the case. As the Gazette reports, box office revenues were up last year for French-language music productions, while English-language music productions saw a decline in profits.

So, does this mean that Quebec audiences put their money where their mouth - or, possibly, their mother tongue - is? Interviews with staff at Evenko and L'Agence Spectra suggest the picture might not be so simple. Cyclical touring variations, a big growth in festivals, and the presence of megastars on the touring circuit all play a role. Read the full article for an in-depth explanation.
