24/04/18 w/ Brandon Hocura (Seance Centre)

Join the Séance Centre, a multifaceted organisation helmed by Brandon Hocura. Primarily a label that specialises in experimental music, minimal composition and sculptured sound with releases from Beverly Glenn Copeland, MJ Lallo and Joanne Forman, the Centre also publishes small press poetry and short stories, deals fairly priced vintage stock and is the North American supply line for essential labels like Musique Plastique, Orbeatize and Stroom.

I was lucky enough to visit the Centre while in Toronto last November, where Brandon showed me piles of yet-to-be-digitised tapes, stretching from 80s regional compilations to esoteric fanzine additions, performance scores and DIY efforts. It appears he finally made some headway in this seemingly infinite task, compiling a 90 minute cassette oddity for our latest guest mix. These are next level obscurities. Hear the unheard…
