Show Notes

Clarinetist and experimental/improvisational artist Amanda Forest is on the show!

We talked about her new improvisational electronic project, ‘Paintchip Prompts’ (it’s rad, you should check it out), the clarinet not being the “dusty old relic” I thought it was, delving into electronic sounds during the pandemic, and much more!

Now with improved audio!

Re-release: Dead Ranch (2014)

On June 8, the Winnipeg music scene lost a friend. Chad Alsop, guitarist/vocalist of sludge/metal/hardcore/whatever-core act Dead Ranch passed a few days after sustaining serious injuries. (You can read more about Chad in this [beautifully-written post on Dead Ranch's Facebook page](https://www.facebook.com/deadranch/posts/2046928851999929)). In addition to his contributions as 1/4 of one of Winnipeg's best bands, Chad was also a familiar face in Witchpoliceland. He appeared on the podcast with Dead Ranch twice (most recently back in April) and was a key member of our first-ever Big Mix-Up band at the Park Theatre in 2016. When Chad first appeared on the podcast in spring 2014, Witchpolice was still starting to get off the ground, so a lot of newer listeners likely haven't heard it. It was recorded in former co-host Jon's basement (a/k/a The Blanket Fort), and it followed the old 'song selection' format the show used to have. We'll be back next week (or maybe even sooner...I might double-up on episodes this week if I have time) with some fresh content from 2017, but for now, enjoy this one from the archives. RIP Chad. You'll be missed. (Support Chad's memorial fund: ) ...

WR145: Dark Forest

It's a change of scenery this week! Instead of talking to musicians, Sam hung out with some of the minds behind Zell-Koj Studio's excellent made-in-Manitoba horror flick Dark Forest. Producer/writer/director Roger Boyer, producer/camera/editor Craig Guiboche and actor Dennis Scullard (who plays the bloodthirsty maniac) sat down to talk about the indie movie biz, the process of getting a project from an idea to the big screen (Dark Forest played at Winnipeg's Towne 8 cinema) and much more! ...
