Jonathan Scherk

Jonathan Scherk (CA)

The sparkly, computer driven, introspective landscapes of Vancouver producer and sound artist Jonathan Scherk have been steadily gaining traction within Canada’s thriving ambient underground scene over the last half decade. Since releasing his debut tape of serenely oscillating synths and gentle syncopation under the moniker 80(sun) back in 2010, Scherk has been putting his textural, loop oriented style to practice through collaborations with a number of fellow B.C. musicians. His hypnotic sequencing found a home as part of the sample based electronic trio Plays:four, which opened for Oneohtrix Point Never and Pantha Du Prince in 2012. Scherk approaches his music as a consideration of the correspondence between technical process and aesthetics, where technique and interpretation are engaged in parallel. As plans to release a catalogue of material firm up, Scherk brings his waves of percussive clicks, acousmatic euphoria and glitchy nostalgia to the festival.
