Montréal-based composer and new media artist Greg Debicki (Woulg) produces emotive glitch music by combining the dissonance of grunge with the rhythmic complexity of IDM and jazz. Using a bundle of custom software and hacked hardware, Woulg experiments with subversive methods of sound design, exploring the creative potential of destruction, distortion and glitch. Woulg’s soundcapes guarantee a heightened listening experience: minimalist melodies and stirring synthesized tones always on the verge of careening wildly out of control. An open-source advocate, Woulg releases his output on like-minded labels such as Outlier Recordings and Enig'matik. At EM15, he’ll present Hollow, a live performance with generative, sound responsive visuals that takes festivalgoers on a trippy, diagrammatic odyssey into the fabric of techno. Journeying from dark, four-to-the-floor to cerebral IDM and back, Hollow takes after mind-melting visual cues devised by the likes of masters and festival alumni Ryoichi Kurokawa, Carsten Nicolai and Ryoji Ikeda.
