Morgan Packard + Joshue Ott (US)
CANADIAN DEBUT Long-time friends and collaborators Morgan Packard and Joshue Ott have an innate ability to take risks others would be too fearful to even attempt, in doing so their musical and visual live show is bold, fascinating and utterly compelling. Morgan Packard’s exquisite audio experiments are set to equally moving visuals created by Joshue Ott. Ott is the creator of superDraw, a home-made software application which manipulates simple line drawings to create something beautiful and far removed from the original input. Classically trained producer Packard utilises his own undoubted processing skills to fuse a host of sprawling genres while retaining coherence throughout. Deftly using his self-made software techniques, he pits fragmented elements of techno, breakbeat and micro-house against more conventional material such as saxophone and accordion; piecing all the details together so successfully that he ends up with electronic music that is anything but.
