    Barcode Free Music promotes alternative forms of musical cocreation that are community-based and socially-engaged––bringing these projects to a wider audience.
    BFM is an artists' and musicians' collective that advocates on behalf of regional musicians who are extending the boundaries of their creative process.
    BFM focuses its energies on intergenerational musical projects that have a strong sense of social justice and on music that:
    • nurtures intercultural encounter(s);
    • that encourages all ages and diverse communities to cocreate;
    • that expands and redefines the frontiers of convention and experimentalism;
    • that emerges from and fosters public commons spaces;
    • that is genre-breaking and defiantly autonomous;
    • that champions freedom of expression;
    • that resists commodification;
    • and that cultivates improvisation, experimentation, and risk-taking.
    BFM works closely with community partners to support outside-the-box approaches to making more music happen, making that music more widely available, and advocating for musicians who work outside of conventional commercial contexts. We embrace stories and sounds that challenge, disrupt, and re-invent.
    We are a 100% not-for-profit collective whose values align with the text box quotes we have randomized throughout the site. All proceeds from sales help sponsor forthcoming projects. We encourage musicians whose creative processes align with ours to be in touch.

about

Spawned by the imagination of Canadian composer Mark Korven and a trail of musical exploration going back over a thousand years, the APPREHENSION ENGINE was “birthed” in 2016 by instrument maker and musician Tony Duggan-Smith—the result of a two-week lockdown in a small Toronto workshop following the mantra of ‘what if’ and ‘why not.’

This recording captures highlights from the three sets that were played by the SILENCE COLLECTIVE, a group of experienced improvisers who, meeting for the first time with Mark Korven, and completely unrehearsed, improvised the music heard here featuring an unprecedented new Canadian-made instrument that has received international acclaim.

The performers sat facing the audience and in front of a screen playing an experimental film created by Guelph musician and multimedia artist Jeff Bird. The film was based entirely on images taken by Duggan-Smith of his 92-year-old mother before she died, a living memory of a remarkable woman that the musicians were invited to respond to as an inspiration for the evening’s improvisations.
