To mark its 30th anniversary
To continue the festivities of its 30th anniversary, CISM will launch this fall a vinyl compilation of 11 new tracks as well as a retrospective book published by Ta Mère.
Les chants du 30e, the compilation
|With the compilation Les chants du 30e, CISM wants to mark the passing of time – to remember, also to highlight where it is going. Les chants du 30e brings together the pieces of Trois Accords, Bon Enfant, Shreez X Tizzo X Soft, Corridor, Safia Nolin, Laurence-Anne, Brown Family, VICTIM, MUNYA, Joël Martel, and a surprise artist.|
|The CISM team received some of these artists at Madame Wood studio, others recorded at their own studios. The final product is a representation of the sound horizon of what is broadcast on their airwaves before, now, all the time.” The project intended to tap into what has been formative for the station’s sound, juxtapose it with what defines it now – or even, what it might strive for in the future. But the important thing here is the heart: of that, there is en masse, as much love as dedication. Benoit Poirier, Music Director of CISM|
The compilation Les chants du 30e will be available from October 1 online on Bandcamp and in vinyl format at the station (2,332 boul. Édouard-Montpetit) and at the record store Le Vacarme (6,250 Saint-Hubert).

“Hello. I am Alexandre Fontaine Rousseau. I’ve been a volunteer at CISM for twelve years. That’s exactly one-third of my life. Just thinking about it, it makes me dizzy. And CISM turned thirty this year. If we add the years during which the station was not broadcast on the FM band, it is even more than that. For the occasion, I decided to go talk to some of the people who, over the decades, have forged the sound of 89.3 FM. People who work there for hours and hours, week after week. Through their individual stories was drawn that of the station. Through their passion, I try to talk about mine. Alexandre Fontaine Rousseau
The latest artifact of CISM’s 30th-anniversary celebrations, Il est strictement défendu de boire en studio: 30 ans de bénévolat à CISM will be published by Éditions de Ta Mère and will be available in bookstores on October 19th.
