The Idea of Canada - Part 1

Living Out Loud

"The Idea of Canada" is about competing ideas of nationhood; Originally aired in 1992 for the tenth anniversary of the death of Glenn Gould, it's a counterpoint of ideas which tries to express Canadians' competing beliefs about what this country is. It's an audio composition; part documentary, part music, with moments of chaos, quiet resignation, anger, hope and humour.
