Event Description

Using the Octatrack as a live sampler, portions of vocal, electronic and amplified sounds will be captured and looped. Without any pre-prepared samples, by using resonators, filters, and extreme pitch shifting, a field of drones, pitched textures, and string-like sounds will be created in real time.

The trio's new CD titled “The Wake For William H Bonney” — just released on Infrequency Editions — will be available at the performance.

>>Lance Austin Olsen: Amplified objects, etc.
The fragmentation of memory is a reoccurring theme in Lance Austin Olsen’s work. In fact, his body of work in both sound and visual artworks not only function as an ongoing diary, but also a constant folding and reevaluation of events from his life and immediate social landscape. Lance was one of eight composers recently released on the Another Timbre label “Canadian Contemporary Composers” series.

>>Erin Cunes: Voice
In her work, Erin strives to honour the fragility and imperfection of the human condition, using her voice as a simple expression of sound. Seeking out process driven, experimental projects which inspire her to transform the way she approaches performing and teaching. Erin obtained a Bachelors degree in vocal performance at l’Universite de Montreal, studied with Selena James at The Victoria Conservatory of Music and began to delve into the realm of experimental music and extended voice work with Richard Armstrong at The Banff Centre.

>>Dan Godlovitch: Electron Octotrack
Daniel Godlovitch is a composer and sound designer active in a wide range of genres. He has performed minimal improv with Lance Olsen and Jamie Drouin, played modular synthesizer in the Krells, scored two works for contemporary dance group Broken Rhythms, provided live sound design for Paper St. Theatre, and released experimental dance music under the alias okpk. Outside of musical projects, he is a digital instrument designer, and founding member of the Pretty Good Not Bad Festival and the URTH concert series.
