What I'm Listening To: November 2017

Adam Schoales

Here's a list of a few of the things that have been in constant rotation on my iPod -- err -- iPhone lately.

KIASMOS - Blurred
The latest EP from KIASMOS. If you loved their album, you'll love this. 

ADRIAN GORDON COOK - In The Hours
Full disclosure, I know Adrian and have worked on a few projects with him. That doesn't take away from the fact that his music is incredible, and he's one of the most talented people I know. If you dig Nils Frahm's albums, you'll definitely enjoy Adrian's latest work.

TODD BAKER - Monument Valley 2 Soundtrack
The sequel to one of the best iPhone games of all time also happens to have one of the best soundtracks I've heard in some time. Really great stuff here.

PHIL FRANCE - The Swimmer
Phil France might be best known as a member of another one of my favourite bands, THE CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA. His solo EP is very much in line with the band's offering so if you like their work you're bound to dig this.

JOHN MAYER - The Search for Everything
The latest from John Mayer, which deviates from his more recent pop-folk based albums, and much more in line with his earlier work with the John Mayer Trio. If you only know John Mayer's earliest adult contemporary stuff (Your Body Is a Wonderland, etc.) it might be time to revisit him.

TIFF Tidbits

Adam Schoales

Since starting at TIFF as a Video Producer back in June I've had the pleasure of working on a number of fun and interesting video projects. Here's a small selection of some of my favourites so far.

In January of 2017 TIFF's founder Bill Marshall passed away. This short documentary, which screened on opening night of the 2017 festival, pays tribute to our late founder with interviews from those who knew him best.

Legendary funnyman Jim Carrey popped by TIFF's Studio 9 during festival to discuss his influences, his childhood, and of course Andy Kauffman.

Two of England's finest actors, Kate Winslet and Idris Elba, popped by Studio 9 during festival for the inaugural episode of TIFF's Actor x Actor series.

Keanu Reeves talks Kathryn Bigelow and Patrick Swayze and their desires to push the limits while making the iconic Point Break

The TIFF 2017 Highlight Trailer recaps some of the best moments from the 2017 festival, and features appearances from The Queen, Lady Gaga, Stringer Bell, Sherlock, and most importantly, my favourite comedian. And, oh yeah, Drake.

A supercut of some of Messrs. Brydon and Coogan's best impressions from The Trip series.

TIFF Artistic Director Cameron Bailey sits down with legendary filmmaker Christopher Nolan to talk Dunkirk.

Canada's own Ellen Wong discusses Scott Pilgrim, Glow, and her love for Toronto.
