Here’s the full day's lineup of live performances:
3PM | Jade Statues
5PM | A-Ro
6PM | Downtown Ambassadors
DTA performs live improvised chillout/triphop jams. Allan Rodger plays on the bass, keys and Mini-moog while K-Rec captures Allan Rodger’s loops on the fly using Ableton Live with an APC40 and drops samples with his Yamaha SU700.
7PM | Zoo Owl (Toronto)
8PM | Heroshe x Night Work
Connecting through Chapelsound, Night Work and Heroshe decided to start producing/jamming together to gain a better understanding of each others production techniques and share each others musical interests. Using synthesizers, samples, and a drum machine, they forge a sound that blends Night Work’s interest in the UK electronica sound and Heroshe’s fascination with hip-hop/jazz.
9PM | Blocktreat
Brandon Hoffman meshes field recordings, clunky sampled percussion , and effects-drenched mandolin to create a meditative mosaic of sound. His approach is as nostalgic as it is progressive. Hoffman was recently a guest performer and lecturer at the University of Colorado, and can be heard regularly on CBC Radio 2′s the Signal with Laurie Brown. Follow Blocktreat on Soundcloud.
