FORMS Festival: Laurel Halo with Jeremy Gara, Kara-Lis Coverdale, Brigitte Bardon't and more
Presented by THUMP
Heavy, mutilated strains of electronic music with influence from the sounds of Detroit, UK and Germany – Laurel Halo’s music is shapeshifting, moody and ecstatic, with rhythmic flashes mediated by modal simplicity. The Michigan-born and Berlin-based artist has released both instrumental and vocal-driven records on the London-based label Hyperdub.
Heralded as “one of the most exciting young composers in North America” by the Guardian and a “unique navigator of the electronic world” by NPR, Montreal-based Kara-Lis Coverdale is a fiercely independent voice in new music that champions omnivorous approach to sound. She creates colourful and dense arrangements that blur the line between the human and the data with a unique penchant for long-form melody, harmony, and sonic detail.
Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Jeremy has been a member of Arcade Fire since 2004. His first solo album, Limn, released in March 2016, is a melodic, dense, and noisy ambient record underpinned by a collection of organized improvisations and solo creative moments in response to familiar collaborative efforts.
Kristel Jax's pop concretè sound project based in Toronto. Live performances combine noise, drone, and melody through live radio manipulations, found sound, and kitsch vocals mimicking the operatic & Disney princess ranges.
