For several years around the turn of the century I was director of the Contemporary Music Group at Carleton University. Every Friday morning I would unlock the door for a small group of music students and together we would practise each other’s compositions and work on improvisational techniques. We made lots of crazy sounds and had lots of fun. At the end of every school year we would take over the music department and present an evening of this wacky music in a heavily relaxed, slightly psychedelic atmosphere. We called it Live Magnetic Air, admission was free, and so were the drinks and snacks.
You can read my ticket story about the entire Live Magnetic Air experience here.
