about

The Pop Metheny EP is a collection of works inspired and informed by the written music of jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. It is a playful transcription of ostensibly complicated and harmonically advanced music, rendered simply and with humour, intended to demonstrate the potential for anyone and everyone to involve themselves in creative music making regardless of their level of training or education in the particular complexities of jazz music or otherwise.

"They seem to be having a real struggle with this because you can’t try things out. You can’t do that anymore. Everything we do now is a world premiere. This is incredibly irritating. not so much for the thing, but the thing of you ask for people not to do it and then they still do it. My situation I think is mostly one of real good luck. It didn’t come easy to me at all it still doesn’t I mean, um um, I’m not at all the type guy that picked it up and all of a sudden I could just play everything."

RRO

RRO is a four-piece electronic band with members based in Saskatchewan, Ontario, and Quebec.
