National Music Centre Artists In Residence: Winter 2017

Thursday 05th, January 2017 / 12:07
By Colin Gallant

CALGARY — The National Music Centre recently released its list of Artists in Residence at Studio Bell for winter 2017. This latest wave of studio guests trends more towards acts with a 20-something audience and has an impressive amount of Calgary connections. Our briefs are below, with more complete bios available through NMC.

Amir Amiri is perhaps the most immediately obvious fit for Studio Bell: he’s a specialist in an obscure instrument: the difficult to describe santur. His expertise in the Iranian classical instrument paired with his drive to fuse its powers with contemporary electronic elements couldn’t be in a better setting.

CORINTHIAN

About half the issues we put out in 2016 made some mention of Corinthinan (human name: Evangelos Lambrinoudis). Between his debut under the moniker, work running the Deep Sea Mining Syndicate imprint and being one-half of duo Sanctums, Lambrinoudis looks to be one of the busiest artists in Calgary – technically, he’s also the only artist based out of the city participating in the residency.

LUKE DOUCET

Doucet has been a celebrated songwriter for years but found an apex with his duo project Whitehorse (alongside wife Melissa McLelland) this year. From accepting the JUNO for Adult Alternative Album of the Year (whatever that means, as he pondered at the press conference for the event) here in town, to headlining the Calgary Folk Music Festival, can we just give him his White Hat already? Join Doucet at Studio Bell on January 12th for a public workshop.

LISA LIPTON

Lisa Lipton is a multi-disciplinary artist that smudges the boundaries between performance and media. She’s performed many times in Alberta, including at Calgary’s Sled Island and dual-city fest M:ST. She’s also done residencies throughout Alberta and has been four-times nominated for the national Sobey Art Award.

SAFIA NOLIN

Safia Nolin is in residence as part of a partnership between NMC and ADISQ, an integral professional association in Quebec’s music industry. The choice demonstrates NMC’s outreach to other major institutions across the country and Nolin’s SOCAN- and Polaris-nominated folk pop is a well-chosen addition to the program.

WOODPIGEON and KATHRYN CALDER

Woodpigeon is the musical project of former Calgarian Mark Andew Hamilton. While he now resides in Montreal, the early days of Woodpigeon’s start in Calgary are well-remembered by the city’s music community. Collaborating with Hamilton is Kathryn Calder, a solo performer and member of The New Pornographers. Who knows what the two will cook up together?

NMC’s winter 2017 Artists in Residence will all conduct public workshops during their stay. Announced so far is Luke Doucet on January 12th.
