    Jon Hassell: The regenerative mantra (Interview)

    In painting, pentimento can be described as the ghostly reappearance of previous forms or features that have been altered or erased, and then repainted on the canvas. This is what Jon Hassell applies to music, at least in his recent two-volume Pentimento series on the Ndeya label, Listening to Pictures (2018) and Seeing Through Sound (July 2020). A master of superimposition, the trumpeter, composer and electronic creator invites us more than ever to practice “vertical listening”, to use his own expression. Contacted at his home in Los Angeles, the octogenarian provides clues to explain the astonishing freshness of his art, constantly regenerated since his early youth.

    Jon Hassell: The indefatigable explorer (Part 3)

    Trumpet player Jon Hassell has had a marked influence on the music of the last half-century. It’s true that Hassell has a sound and has created a musical universe that is instantly recognizable, which is the mark of the greats. But who exactly is he and, above all, what has he done to stand out in this way? To answer this question, PAN M 360 has retraced his journey.

    Jon Hassell: The indefatigable explorer (Part 1)

    Trumpet player Jon Hassell has had a marked influence on the music of the last half-century. And not only on other trumpeters, like Arve Henriksen, Nils Petter Molvaer, Mathias Eick, Erik Truffaz, and Paolo Fresu. In the world of electronic music, for example, from Aphex Twin to Oneohtrix Point Never, many musicians are indebted to him for the paths he opened up. So much so that he can be considered one of the innovators and tireless explorers, along with Miles, Coltrane, Jimi Hendrix, Anthony Braxton and John Zorn. Nothing less!

    REFRAIN: As fests are tested

    REFRAIN, ou le Regroupement des festivals régionaux artistiques indépendants, was born in the midst of quarantine, in April 2020, when many festivals were shaken by doubt, distraught, not knowing if their events would take place. It was at that time that Patrick Kearny, general director of the Santa Teresa festival, had the idea of founding an associative structure to promote small and medium festivals in Quebec.

    Ennio Morricone, 1928-2020: Addio, maestro, e grazie

    Profoundly innovative and enormously influential, Italian composer Ennio Morricone is simply the most important name in music for motion pictures – a name now uttered most disconsolately, following the Maestro’s passing on July 6, 2020, at the age of 91. He left us with hundreds of film scores to his credit, spanning all genres (and production budgets!) and marked by many musical moments that have haunted the memories of generations of film and music lovers.
