This presentation will highlight collaborative processes utilized by the Duo Gillis Cunningham (DGC) in the production of their 2020 album release, Sonic Eclipse. The DGC, featuring Drs. Glen Gillis (alto saxophone) and James E. Cunningham (didgeridoo and electronics), has been composing and performing together for more than twenty years. Their music combines sounds from instruments, ancient and new, in contemporary electro-acoustic settings. Although the collaborative process has long been a staple of their original compositions, DGC has recently expanded their collaboration to include other sound artists and musicians such as DGC producer/recording engineer Matt Baltrucki (Hoot Wisdom studio, Boca Raton, Florida), recording engineer Wayne Giesbrecht (Media Production, University of Saskatchewan), and studio drummer and percussionist Satnam Ramgotra (Hollywood, California).
