The RECORDING Project – 1 Year, 20 Artists, 10 Videos, 50k

Abbotsford, BC – CIVL 101.7 FM at the University of the Fraser Valley is proud to present The RECORDING Project, financed by the Community Radio Fund of Canada with a $50,000 grant awarded in 2018.

CIVL spent an entire year collecting interviews and in studio performances from 10 notable touring artists, pairing each with a local artist from the Fraser Valley.

Each week for ten weeks, CIVL will release a new 10 minute video on social media, and a companion interview and performance from a local and touring artist each, broadcast on 101.7 FM and archived for download.

UFV students, CIVL volunteers, and our community radio staff members worked with M.Hutt and Casey Kowalchuk films to bring exciting performances from Juno award winners, Polaris Prize short listers, international educators, local upstarts, and some fun faces from the Canadian media landscape as well!

The schedule of releases goes as follows, with week 1 currently upon us, and each new episode debuting on FM every Sunday, and the videos coming out on social media on Mondays:

Week 1: Stephen Carl O’Shea (You Say Party) and Veronique Noelle (Alt/Punk/Electro)

Week 2: Ed the Sock and UFV Prof Eric Spalding (Comedy/Acoustic)

Week 3: Mob Bounce and JML/Known (Hip Hop)

Week 4: Bird City and David Ivan Neil (Folk/Songwriter)

Week 8: Narcy and Saint Soldier (Hip Hop/Pop)

Week 9: Zaki Ibrahim and Kristin Witko (RnB/Soul/Pop)
