CCMC ’90 Double Cassette

These cassettes document a unique phase in CCMC’s history. These recordings – recorded between October 1989 and October 1990 – feature original members Snow, Mattes and Kubota, joined by sound poet Paul Dutton and John Kamevaar (synthesizer, pre-recorded sounds). Dutton, who is still a member of CCMC today (a trio with John Oswald and Michael Snow), was once a member of Toronto’s legendary Schwitters inspired sound poetry quartet The Four Horseman. He joined CCMC in 1989, bringing a new dimension to the group’s sound with his guttural grumblings and Mongoloid droning, leading them into weird outer-space ethnographic territory. This double cassette release is further evidence of how this radical Cabal of Canadian Music Creators always manage to sound peerless, orbiting a universe entirely their own.

    Mysterious CD-Rs have been appearing in records stores across Toronto for the last few years, all housed in photocopied Letraset sleeves with a $0.00 price sticker on the front, all under the moniker Kanada 70, the nom-de-plume of Craig Dunsmuir (Glissandro 70, Max Gross). Culling from several of these releases between 2006 and 2010, all […]

    Named after the Brian De Palma film about the intimacy and invasive nature of sound recording (in his case a metaphor for filmmaking), this EP finds Toronto’s VOWLS eavesdropping on Pop music. The a-side Burlap swaggers around a drum machine beat that sounds like a New Order 45 played at 33rpm, with thick psychedelic layers […]

  • VOWLS Plays Monterey Pop (Remastered)
    March 25, 2011 | 11:27 am

      About the Film Inspired by Ron Hardy’s disco re-edits, Michael Marranda’s revised literary texts and Richard Prince’s appropriated photographs, this video is composed entirely from footage taken from D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary on the 1967 Monterey Pop music festival. Instead of using the iconic footage of the performances, VOWLS chose to focus on the audience, […]
