Thank you SO MUCH hillbilly for your kind and thoughtful words. You've been a great partner in this, interacting and always sharing positivity via the Interactive. Music is indeed a great healer, especially when you can make it yourself.

hb, I choked up reading your message. Thank you for sharing this with me. You are my fav CKCU listener!!

10:16 AM, May 12th, 2023
Adriana!! I have a soft spot for you and your show, as I feel you have brought something very special to CKCU and our listeners. You have been an outstanding programmer, volunteer, community member and friend! We appreciate you so much and I am very proud of you. The door is always open for you, to return as a host, a guest, co host, anything! Take care of you! We love ya!

Awww, Adriana! I'm shocked and saddened to hear Hexon Bogon will be wrapping up. Having tuned in almost every week, I will truly miss the program. Your selections and interviews have been amazing, I've discovered _so_ much new music. Hexon has been a wonderful transition (and fit) for this time slot after the many years of FMC; those were some big shoes to fill, and you have done so perfectly. Such breadth and insight, locally and globally. Wow! Thank you! And all my very best wishes!

Candace, love you too! Thank you for sharing all that. You are definitely a friend and a good one at that. You've also been an incredible mentor and for that, I thank you. I'm glad that the door will be open for me. This is comforting to no end.

jackc, I'm sorry it was a shock and I'm sorry that it has saddened you. I didn't want that AT ALL! I truly have enjoyed sharing my love of music and interviews with bands. When I approached our program manager Dave about moving time slots, I had debated it with myself for a while as I didn't want to offend John! FMC was definitely a staple at CKCU for so long. Thank you so much for your words. I hope you'll follow Ottawa Experimental Music over on Facebook. I'll continue sharing music and interviews there.

WTF ?! Adrianna, NO ! I know you didn’t come to this decision lightly but it’s such a blow. I’m super bummed.

10:34 AM, May 12th, 2023
Wishing you health and rest.

Again, Chi-Miigech. You are welcome at our campfire, any time. i and i believe you already have our co-ordinates, so i will not spill them here. And the cookie box you kindly dropped off is full of luscious pencils, conte, some paints, and other creative toys. Peace & Beats

Hi Regis, In the past, we've had many a discussion about this very thing but in the end it was always, no way, the show must go on. This time, it's on doctor's orders and I have to listen. It doesn't mean forever, just for now. I'm bummed too.

Chi-miigwech PeterB. Indeed, you've been so welcoming, thank you. I can't take credit for the cookie box. I don't believe it was me but whoever did do that was lovely.

I bet Mr. Lightfoot & Mr. Warhol would luv this cover! Gord is listening intently & Andy is filming it......

11:00 AM, May 12th, 2023
Adriana Ciccone (host)
hb, I concur! I could be wrong, but I think this was a cover that the band played at their concerts and it was supposed to be on their Black album but wasn't added. If that's the case, Gord would have heard it. I hope that's the case. Nothing more incredible for an artist than to have a band cover a tune you wrote and cover it so well.

Ottawa Drone Day! Drone Day is an annual celebration of drone, community, and experimental sound, dreamed by MCLF of Weird Canada in 2014 and vibrated into existence by communities and droners worldwide one day every spring since. These events are all drop-in style; the Eventbrites are sold out, but feel free to come and stay for as long as you'd like. The more, the merrier! ???? Drop-In Midi Lab May 26th | 5 -9 PM EST DARC Workshop Room | 67 Nicholas St Registration is not required. Join us for an open MIDI lab hosted by the Digital Arts Resource Centre for a chance to explore digital soundscapes with controllers and plugins. This lab includes exploration space courtesy of Cicada Sound, who will have stations set up for exploration and “2 player” co-op analogue gear and effects. ???? Intro to Electronic Music Production May 27th | 12 - 2 PM EST DARC Workshop Room | 67 Nicholas St FREE/PWYC Join us for an introduction to electronic music production in Ableton Live with DJ Seiiizi. In this in-person workshop we’ll examine the interconnectivity between digital and analogue sound sources in Ableton Live by experimenting with synthesizers, microphones, and midi. ???? KLANG: Generative Music Production May 27th | 2 - 4 PM EST Zoom FREE/PWYC KLANG is an online workshop that looks into the basics of generative music production using Ableton Live’s built-in devices and effects (including some of Max for Live’s default devices in Ableton). In this workshop, we’ll use Ableton Live’s instruments and effects to set up a series of behaviours and rules for our music to follow. By defining which parameters we want to alter, we can have our music exist and evolve in an ever-changing state. These rules can vary depending on what parameters we want to control, such as probability factors in audio and MIDI clips, instruments, and effects.
