An Alternate History of Canadian Electronic Music (1956 – 1981)

Posted by Rob on October 11th, 2018


As special programming for the 20th edition of send+receive the festival invited American artist and archivist Keith Fullerton Whitman to curate a program of obscure Canadian electronic music. Digging through crates, libraries and more Whitman sourced original vinyl copies of all of the works that were brought together for this incredible 3-hour playlist.

Beginning this weekend the playlist will be presented as a three-part series on CKUW 95.9 FM. The radio feature runs twice weekly – Wednesdays & Sundays

  • Part 1: October 14, 5-6pm and October 17, 9-10pm
  • Part 2: October 21, 5-6pm and October 24, 9-10pm
  • Part 3: October 28, 5-6pm and October 31, 9-10pm

Some additional dialog by Keith Whitman will be included in these programs. Special thanks to all of the narrators and to Daniel Emberg and Victoria King for organizing this.
