An evening full of ambient drones and experimental electronics!

Mathieu Sylvestre explores the strains between natural soundscapes and artificial/electronic
sound sources. The main focus is to merge antinomic sounds and push in boundaries using atypical
treatments in field recordings with modular synthesizers with tapes or loopers. The importance of precise details along waves of harsh frequencies bring a physical and appealing magnitude in the process.

Houses of Worship is the collaborative project by Eric Quach (thisquietarmy) and Jim Demos
(Hellenica). On “Migration” you will find 12 tracks full of smooth experimental tracks,
featuring electronic soundscapes and guitar drones, melting together into something that
could be described as post-Fripp-Eno drones.

Eric Quach
Quach’s prolific output includes more than 50 releases under the Thisquietarmy moniker since 2005, on established indie labels around the world such as Consouling Sounds, Denovali, Aurora Borealis, Midira, Shelter Press, Alien8 & Tokyo Jupiter. He also collaborated with members of Voivod, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Noveller, Amenra, Nadja, Locrian & more. Based in Montreal, he completed over 30 major tours across North/South America, Europe & Asia, performing over 600 gigs in 40 countries, including
festivals such as Red Bull Music Academy, Biennale Nemo, Le Guess Who?, Incubate, Amplifest, Mutek, FIMAV and Suoni Per Il Popolo.

Jim Demos
Demos grew up in the west-end’s industrial part of Winnipeg among rusted train yards and crumbling storage facilities. He now lives and works in Montreal, and performs under the Hellenica moniker since 2012, in which he usually fuses dark ambient type instrumentals utilizing elements of drone, doom, chant and spaghetti-western guitar melodies.
