SÓNAR BY DAY / SATURDAY 14TH JUNE / SONARDOME
AKUFEN (FORCE INC., MUSIQUE RISQUÉE-CA)
From his sound lab in Montreal, Marc Leclair has been revolutionizing electronic music for over two years now, using a technique that he refers to as "micro-sampling". Funky abstract complexity, concocted from audio waste material.
TIM HECKER (MUTEK-CA)
Tim Hecker explores the limits of digital acoustics and terrorist software in a project that manages to maintain a balance between abstraction, rhythm and melody.
Scott Monteith settled in Montreal in 1995, and soon became one of the mainstays of the fertile local scene. Testimony to this are his computerized dub experiments for labels such as Force Inc. and ~scape where he has recently released "Wild Life Documentaries".
VINCENT LEMIEUX (MUTEK-CA)
This restless Canadian masterfully combines his curatorial work for the MUTEK festival with his deejay career, where he reveals his passion for dubby experimentation.
