“Crushingly horrible, hilarious, and stupid” w/ Raven Chacon and John Dieterich (Endlings)

A special session with Endlings (Ravon Chacon + John Dieterich [of Deerhoof]). Endlings have performed a work specially for Unusual Music Exchange in partnership with CJTR, Dunlop Art Gallery, and YYZ Artists Outlet. We listen to the work and discuss how it was made. We also get into some unusual ideas about beauty, translation, and discovering the unknown.
