CAGE with Dan Bédard

CAGE is a cyberloop band. An algorithmic composer interacts with five musicians live on stage. The software, named M, improvises grooves and controls the band’s shared space according to predetermined probabilities. In turn, the musicians improvise with what they’re given, thus closing the loop. The band’s name is a nod to the experimental composer John Cage. Welcome to the crossroads of musicality and technology.

La Slague's Evolution

La Slague was established in 1964 by the Centre des jeunes de Sudbury. After many years of success, La Slague went dormant, and then reappeared for a time in the mid-1980s as a community-based volunteer organization. With La Slague’s renaissance in 2006 as part of the Carrefour francophone, a third generation of concert promotion activities was afoot.
