On ideas

A Mass of Nothing

As many of you may know, one of my absolute favourite artists to arrive on the scene in the last couple of years is, without a doubt, Timber Timbre. His CBC Radio3 Session is a must listen.

It seems ironic that an artist named after a music tone would elude musical descriptors. Haunting, dramatic, swampy and ragged are not really music words per say, but they do get close to Timber Timbre, the musical project of Taylor Kirk.

Last year Timbre Timber release a collection of songs called ‘Out of this Spark’, which created a buzz in critic circles, making the Polaris Music Prize long list, and garnering Taylor an Echo songwriting nomination.

Back in November of 2009, we recorded this Session live off the floor of the legendary Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, Quebec.
