The photographer, Samantha Hurley, is an old friend of mine, and she’s great. I had seen somewhere these very cool, very casual black and white photos of Sam Shepard, so that was the idea I brought to the shoot... and we landed somewhere else entirely. I also find something innately humorous about obviously posed, completely impractical “at work” shots. If anything, I learned that I’m no Sam Shepard. Incidentally, the two scores I brought to the shoot are my favourite tune in Cuphead and my least favorite, but I won’t say which those are. — Kris Maddigan ACD2 2779 Julie Boulianne mezzo-soprano Philippe Sly baritone Les Petits chanteurs du Mont-Royal Choir of the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul Jean-Sébastien Vallée direction 7 OPENER | Harmonics, Artificial and Accidental | DAVID PERLMAN 8 FEATURE| Kris Maddigan: Cuphead’s Musical Mastermind | CATHY RICHES 12 IN CONVERSATION | La Pietà at 20 – Angèle Dubeau | PAUL ENNIS 14 FEATURE | Evergreen Club Contemporary Gamelan: What Canadian Music Sounds Like | ANDREW TIMAR 15 FEATURE | Choral Crossroads: Canadian and Latvian Composers on Display in November | DAVID JAEGER 66 WE ARE ALL MUSIC’S CHILDEN | December’s Child | MJ BUELL 86 REARVIEW MIRROR | Wagner in the Age of #MeToo | ROBERT HARRIS ACD2 2788 JUST RELEASED!
