Knowing Looks

Under the moniker Knowing Looks since the mid-2000s, Prairie-raised, Toronto-based producer Jason Hopfner reconfigures classic minimal electro into enticingly-strange, sculpted soundscapes of beats, samples and glitches. Unafraid of deconstructing existing and often familiar music, from radio rock to Detroit house, Hopfner searches out ways to stitch sounds together to create thriving, bona fide sonic life forms. As Knowing Looks, in 2006 Hopfner produced the four-track EP, The Homeless Landlord on his own Grain Records, followed in 2008 with the EP Uzbekistan Love on Montréal label Musique Risquée, a 2010 release on West Norwood Cassette Library, and a 2011 EP on UK label WNCL Recordings. After performing at MUTEK in 2007 and 2011, Hopfner comes back to Montréal for a night of heady bass and mischievous experimentation.
