- With their USA tour dates kicking off tonight in Boston, Ought have shared a brand new video for Sun Coming Down standout "Beautiful Blue Sky." NPR Music premiered it this morning – head over there to watch it now.
- AUTOMATISME, JASON SHARP, SANDRO PERRI + LORENZ PETER TO PLAY THE CONSTELLATION NIGHT AT SUONI PER IL POPOLO IN MONTREAL, 16 JUNE 2016Following our announcements last week welcoming Automatisme, Jason Sharp and Sandro Perri’s Off World to the roster, we’re happy to report that all three artists will be part of Constellation’s annual label night at the most excellent Suoni Per Il Popolo festival on June 16th at La Sala Rossa.
- Over the past couple of years, Sandro Perri has been letting us in on a fascinating collection of strange and enchanting collaborative sound recordings that he's been involved with – rich in deconstructed melody, interplay between acoustic and electronic instrumentation, and pointillist and aleatory composition techniques. A bounty of private and unreleased tracks has apparently been accumulating for some time and we're very excited to announce that many of these will now begin to see the light of day: Constellation will be releasing three LPs of this material over the next few seasons, rounded up under the project name Off World. Click through for info, and to hear, "Wonder Farm," the first offering from the project.
- Automatisme is the electronic music project of Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec-based producer William Jourdain, exploring various intersections of drone, glitch, dub techno, ambient, electro-acoustic and noise. We’re excited to announce that his next album will be issued on Constellation this autumn. Complete official release info will follow in the coming months; meantime, we welcome Automatisme to the roster and share one of this artist’s most recent tracks, “Transport 3."
- We are very happy to welcome Montréal-based composer, improviser and saxophonist Jason Sharp to the label roster. We'll have info coming soon on the release of his debut full-length this fall, but in the meantime click through for a brief rundown, and to hear "A Boat Upon Its Blood (Pt 3)".
- Godspeed You! Black Emperor has announced three local shows in Montreal, September 19, 20 and 21, at Ville-Émard's Théâtre Paradoxe. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning!
- We were very saddened to learn of Tony Conrad's passing over the weekend; he died on Saturday April 9th at age 76. Conrad's legacy as a brilliant and widely admired artistic and musical innovator, iconoclast, educator and community activist is undeniable – as The Buffalo News obituary reminds us.
- NEW VIDEO: ESMERINE TRACK "The Neighbourhoods Rise" FROM LOST VOICES GETS STOP-MOTION ANIMATION TREATMENT BY AWARD-WINNING CLYDE HENRY PRODUCTIONSEsmerine present a lovely and innovative stop-motion video for Lost Voices opener "The Neighbourhoods Rise", meticulously crafted by Montreal's Clyde Henry Productions (who are also responsible for the album 's artwork). Loud & Quiet premiered the video last week but read on for our post that describes the making of the film and shares some production stills.
- While our recently announced Leap Year Sale includes all our full-length albums from 2013 to 2015, we’d like to take this opportunity to draw a little attention to the year just past in particular, which we feel was a real special one for Constellation, marked by one superb album after another by musicians who’d released at least one or more records previously on the label. We’re humbled, awed and proud; click through for a little roundup.
- Jordan McKenzie – artist, musician, co-founder of Elfin Saddle – passed away accidentally on 18 January on Hornby Island, British Columbia. We are shattered and profoundly saddened. Our hearts go out to his beloved partner Emi, and to his family and friends.
