Hubbub is an experiment by three seasoned improvisers at the intersection of acoustic and electroacoustic music. Combining theremin, glass harmonica, electric cello and micro-percussion with extended vocal techniques, Hubbub constructs sonic textures that range from delicate tonal explorations to bouts of madcap storytelling.
Vocalists DB Boyko and Christine Duncan, building on their previous collaboration known as Idiolalla, are joined by percussionist and cello improviser Andreas Kahre, in a trio that is really a quartet: Hubbub’s sound is created in and by the space’s sonic architecture, and offers a unique amalgam of acoustic and acousmatic elements.
Hubbub’s music is informed by the pleasure of spontaneous sound making, collective improvisation, new music, jazz, electroacoustic composition, and perhaps most of all, by the late American composer Pauline Oliveros’ concept of deep listening.

Electric Eclectics co-presents with Arraymusic a live online concert by Toronto’s legendary improvising collective CCMC.
The CCMC was founded by Peter Anson, Graham Coughtry, Larry Dubin, Greg Gallagher, Nobuo Kubota, Allan Mattes, Casey Sokol, Bill Smith and Michael Snow. Three of the founding members (Graham Coughtry, Nobuo Kubota, and Michael Snow) were members of Artists’ Jazz Band, a seminal Toronto free-jazz ensemble. In 1976, the group founded The Music Gallery as an artist-run centre where they performed twice-weekly. The group was formally associated with The Music Gallery until 2000. Members of the group were also founders of the Music Gallery Editions record label, which issued CCMC’s first six albums.
The group remains active to the present day, though through its various incarnations Michael Snow has been the group’s only constant member. The group currently performs as a quartet of Snow (piano/Octave Cat synthesizer), John Oswald (alto sax), Paul Dutton (soundsinging, mouth harp) and John Kamevaar (electronic percussion/electroacoustic sounds).
