Edmonton Sound Scene

Upon arrival in Edmonton, I vowed to jump into the city’s music life, and the experimental/sound art scene in particular. I’d contacted my earlier acquaintances in the area, Shawn Pinchbeck and Gary James Joynes, to let them know I was here for any future happenings.

I was initially invited by my friend Gerry Morita from Mile Zero… Read more →

Holiday gifts from Listenoften!

I’ve always felt it easier to give than get, because there’s very little I want or need over the holidays except good cheer and fun times.

Sounds like…

Every two years in St. John’s, there’s a week-long summer event that sounds like bliss to my ears and gives meaning to the music I craft — Sound Symposium. If I’m not participating as an official artist on the program, I usually make a point of attending some featured performances and ASSUREDLY get to The Ship Pub for the featured… Read more →
