A Question of When – When It Happens To You (New Vinyl) (Limited Edition) (Orange Vinyl)

Low stock - 1 available


New sealed copy. Limited edition on orange coloured vinyl.

A Question of When is a largely anonymous multi-media artistic collaboration between members of previously-established musical acts. It delivers an immersive and tactile experience of cinematic, ambient, angular, and hypnotic — yet infectious and hook-driven — music, spanning the emotional spectrum from beautiful, tender, and empowering to violent, abrasive, and terrifying.

Without a history of its own, based solely on the merits and depths of its artistic vision, A Question Of When was awarded funding from the Ontario Arts Council to produce its debut LP, When It Happens To You — before having an online presence or having even been publicly announced by its members. Recorded on 2-inch analog tape and released across physical and digital formats from vinyl to Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 surround sound, When It Happens To You presents a question of when‘s expansive and ambitious artistic vision on a 5-song journey through the 5 stages of grieving, accompanied by experimental, non-linear visuals. In tackling challenging subjects such as identity, suicide, substance use, and intergenerational trauma, A Question of When compassionately and critically narrates and personalizes the political, with responsible provision of consulted-upon social and mental health support resources.

The out-of-music experience is a key ingredient to a question of when‘s immersive whole; not just in how its art is presented but who is meaningfully involved in its creation across continuums of ethnicity, gender identity, sexuality, and ability. In alignment with A Question of When‘s mission of equity and inclusion in the arts, When It Happens To You was righteously engineered, mixed, and mastered by women.
