An impressive group of Manitoba musicians are getting a head start on the spring thaw this month with a trip to Texas. But it’s not all sunburns and barbeque for the 10 local acts making their way south; they’ll be showcasing and networking at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin. The prestigious festival will put some of Manitoba’s most exciting and innovative acts on stage in front of powerful international music industry professionals.

Now in its 23rd year, SXSW, which runs March 15-20, is one of the world’s biggest music festivals and conferences, featuring over 1300 acts from across the globe performing in every imaginable genre. Manitoba acts will have the opportunity to perform for some of the industry's top names as well as rabid audiences in several Austin venues.

For the first time, Manitoba Music will host a showcase of top talent from the keystone province at SXSW on March 17 at The Parish Underground. The line-up features breakout soul/pop duo Imaginary Cities, indie pop/rock outfits The Liptonians, Royal Canoe, The Details, and Hope Atlantic, and hip-hop act The Lytics, This show is the latest in Manitoba Music’s series of successful market development events highlighting homegrown talent, including three recent industry showcases in Toronto.

John Cage World Radio Premieres This Week!
on February 18,2011 by jared

Von Wichert, in cooperation with OgreOgress Productions, is pleased to announce that on the February 23rd edition of the Komodo Dragon Show he will be premiering 2 brand new recordings of avant-garde composer John Cage.  The following works will be broadcast, over the course of 4 hours, between 7AM and 11AM CST.

The first piece, Two3, was originally written in 1991 and runs for 121 minutes. Two3 is a suite for sho (traditional Japanese mouth-organ) and conch shells in 10 movements featuring Tamami Tono on the sho and Glenn Freeman on conch shells.

The second piece, 108, was also written in 1991 and runs 43:30. The piece is a symphony for large orchestra in 4 movements, performed by the Chance Philharmonic. 108 is written for the largest ensemble of any of Cage's Number Pieces. Its length of 43'30'' is an allusion - intentional or not - to the infamous 4'33'' (1952) that earned Cage considerable fame. 108 is in four movements and, when played by itself, more closely resembles a traditional symphony than any other piece in Cage's output.

The final piece, 110, is 108 played with any three movements of Two3, making a double concerto for sho and
conch shells plus symphony orchestra. More information on Cage's number pieces is available here. The pieces heard today will be released on audio DVD later in March.

The Chance Philharmonic is comprised of:

Christina Fong, violins/violas
Karen Krummel, violin/cellos
Michael Crawford, contrabasses
Ruth Bylsma, piccolo/flutes/alto flute
Sarah Bowman, oboes/english horns
Michael Kornacki, clarinets/bass clarinets
Vince Karamanov, bassoons/contrabassoons
Paul Austin, horns
Michael Bowman, trumpets
Robert Ward, trombones/bass trombones/tuba
Glenn Freeman, percussion
