Sonic improvisation: experimental sounds from Civvie and Trio Telfær
While some might think that jazz school is just jamming all day, students also study subject areas including composition and arranging, songwriting, jazz history, theory, musicianship, pedagogy, film scoring, recording, sound mixing, and production.
Some jazz pros never actually step foot into a post-secondary institution, however, and go on to become successful – if not legendary. Is it beneficial, then, to go to jazz school to find work and be successful in the field?
Pop-up RAW:JazzFest venue combines architectural and sonic innovation
Sometimes music can sound a little bit less like ‘music’, and more like an exploration of space, textures, and tones. Abandoning the classic chorus/verse, or head/solo structure for songs can offer artists brand new room to play and to create.
Winnipeg artists Civvie and Trio Telfær have stepped away from structure in favour of music that is constantly changing – relying on the tradition of improvisation and on picking up new sound-making strategies in the creation of their unique music.
An innovative new concert series is making its debut at the 2019 TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival, and this time, the venue is equally as groundbreaking as the all-star lineup of performers.

The Comet is Coming - Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery
It takes a village to help put on one of Winnipeg’s largest music festivals, and the TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival’s 300+ volunteers are essential to the event’s success year after year.
UK trio The Comet is Coming – Shabaka Hutchings on saxophone and clarinet, Dan Leavers (aka Danalogue) on keyboards, and Max Hallet (aka Betamax) on drums – shape an intergalactic adventure through rich synths, distorted drum machines and the alternately soothing and stressful sound of Hutchings’ sax.
If the point of this album is to implore the listener to trust in something greater than themselves, it more than accomplishes its goal.
