A sound artist, musician and producer based out of London, UK and Toronto, Thomas Cade’s glitch-laden, lo-fi melodic tapestry skirts ambiguous boundaries between technical, cerebral and somatic experiences. A renegade gear whiz who assembles polyrhythmic atmospheres with an array of synthesizers, loopers, MIDI controllers and guitar-based effects processors, Cade’s curiously meditative soundscapes blend acoustic and electronic components to fascinating ends. Greenwich Mean Time (2013), his debut LP for Vancouver imprint Hybridity Music, drills the listener into submission with its beat-up vocals, moody tempos and suspenseful, bass-heavy grooves. Of late, Cade has staged interactive soundscapes at Toronto’s Nuit Blanche, noise art and A/V performances at Vancouver’s New Forms Festival.
