In what we hope is music to your ears, C2 Online — Montréal 2020 (October 19-30) is adding a new initiative to its digital programming: Sunset Sessions. These sessions are a series of live-streamed, intimate performances from acclaimed Montreal musicians as well as in-depth conversations with them moderated by prominent music industry figures.
The first Sunset Session will kick-off October 20, 4:30-5:45 pm, with a performance by Montreal’s own Random Recipe, presented by RBC, at Espace C2 atop the Hotel Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth. C2 Online pass holders will be able to catch the live stream of them performing their eclectic blend of melodic pop and hip-hop on C2’s online event platform.
The session will feature musical performances and conversations between the band’s lead vocalists, Fab and Frannie, and Laurent Saulnier (Vice President of Programming and Production, L’Équipe Spectra, and a long-time music journalist). The discussions will focus on the challenges and opportunities for more inclusive representation. The group explores these themes as well as those of feminism and positive sexuality on their 2018 album Distractions, and more recently in their thought-provoking video for the song HEY BOY, a collaboration with street artist MISS ME that features many female and non-binary Montrealers.
From the health crisis to the Black Lives Matter movement to the recent wave of denunciations of sexual misconduct, there is no doubt that the past few months have shaken Quebec’s cultural industry to its core. The conversation with Random Recipe will touch on how creatives can positively effect change through their artistic choices.
Random Recipe’s Sunset Session offers a unique opportunity for industry leaders to learn how creativity can be leveraged for positive change, all while enjoying an exclusive performance by a beloved Montreal band. Note that the conversations will be held in French.
