Murray Lightburn – whose day job is fronting indie rock band The Dears – is also a great photographer and we share a love of analogue. He brought three or four of his vintage film cameras, including a Rolleiflex. I brought a few of my vintage machines in a large suitcase, including an AKAI reel-to-reel and an oscillator robot. Over the course of four hours we shot near the iconic lighthouse on the pier in the heart of Old Lachine. It was brutally cold and the wind was like a knife. I was standing directly on the rocks on the water’s edge wearing heels. The tape from the reels began blowing off the reel into the camera (making for some great shots), and then eventually all over Lachine. We got a few looks from passersby. And there are some outtakes of the session that capture my emotional state as I casually froze to death. — Nicky Lizée The Choir of the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul presents LUX a collection of sacred songs FEATURES 7 OPENER | Back to the Future | DAVID PERLMAN 8 FEATURE | Artful Glitching: Nicole Lizée | WENDALYN BARTLEY 12 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS | Rock and Rage: director Richard Rose | JENNIFER PARR 14 FEATURE| Seminal Schoenberg: the Second Viennese School | DAVID JAEGER 16 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS | Finding the Balance: pianist George Li | PAUL ENNIS 70 REMEMBERING | Celebrating Cathy Elliott | JENNIFER PARR 71 WE ARE ALL MUSIC’S CHILDEN | MJ BUELL 91 DISCOVERIES | Old Wine: Bernstein Remastered | BRUCE SURTEES ACD2 2771 O Come All Ye Faithful Once in Royal David’s City A Spotless Rose Lux Aurumqueand Just released!
