Evan Tighe, Montreal-based drummer and composer, is an active member in several of the city’s vibrant music communities. As an obsessive listener and avid sound-explorer, Evan will be curating his September If You Got Ears residency with a focus on listening - exploring a wide range of abstract and noise-inflected music with a strong focus on the improvised music tradition. He will also be wrangling up some local noisemakers for select interviews, general sound-musings and the odd in-house performance.
