Montreal Massacre

Sound Reaction to Violence Against Women

This week, I’m guest blogging for the Canadian Music Centre. It’s my fourth and final blog post in a series where I explore compositions by my colleagues that are on social justice themes or impactful contemporary events.

This month, I’m exploring Hildegard Westerkamp’s École Polytechnique, a riveting and emotionally jarring composition that takes us back to December 6, 1989 – the Montreal Massacre.

As this is my final post in my Library Residency, I would like to thank the CMC for providing me with this opportunity to explore the amazing works of my colleagues. Special thanks to Matthew Fava for providing his editorial talents and facilitation to my posts.
