aberkok ,

A gem of reporting on an important music niche.

Pete's interviews with his friends also happen to fill a crucial hole in music scholarship: the Toronto contemporary music scene. Keenly curious about people, Pete creates conditions for composers to speak astutely about their own practice. I particularly enjoy the troubling of conventional process tropes: do they like to notate their work, or do it on the computer? Straight to 2-track? In most cases, it's more complicated and interesting than that! All subjects have nifty ways of combining different modalities to get their music where they want it to go.

Friendly and passionate

Lovely to listen to. Pete and his guests are really friendly and share their passion for music beautifully.
