The Record Of The Week Club is a weekly recording session featuring musicians from diverse musical backgrounds. Never knowing who their co-creators will be -- an incognito and disparate group of musicians meet at MCM Studios in Winnipeg, Canada every Wednesday evening. Over the course of one evening they are charged with the task of getting to know each other, arranging, rehearsing and recording a piece under the guidance of Mike Petkau. The song is immediately mixed and uploaded and made available for download that same night.
Jazz drummers are being paired with punk guitarists and opera singers; classical violinists are being paired with taiko drummers and DJ's, folksingers are being paired with sound collage artists and trombonists. The combinations are endless. And to top it off, we've invited local filmmakers to document the process.
Samson was paired with Inuit throat singer Nikki Komaksiutiksak, and Curtis Walker of electronic act Blunderspublik to write, record and mix a song in one evening. The results are titled "Keewatin Arctic" and you can stream or purchase the song at RecordOfTheWeekClub.com.
