honoured and excited to play the 10 year celebration for the much beloved bass coast music festival. it's a sold out show with matt the alien, librarian, barisone, and shah dj's. long life space toast!
a belated but hearty thanks to everyone who came out and took part in new forms festival 2016. it was a pleasure to put together two of the line up's for this year. the satellite gallery on friday night with lee bannon, strategy, x/o, rosen, wzrdryAV, and aspecial performance from mark van hoen. and the main room saturday night with untold, deft, swisha, hood joplin and c130. it's been nothing but positive and entusiastic responses on all fronts. happy this could happen in vancouver. special thanks to malcolm levy, scott w, emmy, rauiri, matt, and the whole rest of the team. cheers!
had a stellar time in the BC interior that last couple weeks.
KAMP was a really sweet time. i would totally recommend. really enjoyed soaking up the "kamp" vibes and making a few new friends. did a sound journey workshop which i thought went particularly well, and might make a point to do more of, and had fun with the mainstage set on saturday night. go team blue
BASS COAST is pretty much a local legend and now a garunteed sell-out each year. so solid. through and through. didn't catch a set i wasn't feeling. it was gift to deliver an umcompromising live set on the closing night. very thankful to be part of that fam. long live bass coast.
wanted to take the time to thank the team from the first annual pretty good not bad festival in victoria, bc.
great performances from laurel halo, loscil, sean evans, chris dammeyar, compzit, magnetic ring, emp interactions, liquid transmitter, and the local dancers and drummers who opened the ambient picnic. it was especially a treat to live collab with loscil. had a good time during my souns set as well.
HUGE thanks to vancouver symphony orchestra for having me this past weekend at their new music festival at the orpheum theatre. was a pleasure on so many levels. loved checking out so much work by local and canadian composers, many of who were in attendence. and having my dj work so well recieved that the symphony's conductor called me "quiet tasteful actually" on stage and some of the composers and players giving me compliments .. well, let's just say that carries a different type of weight than someone flashing their lighter at a rave (which, or course, is great too!). ..might be a mix or two that results from the affair as well. cheers! and til next time!
Very pleased to announce that i will be DJ'ing in the lounge at the Orpheum Theatre to close out each night of next week's New Music Festival. Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Kronos Quartet, Standing Wave, Rachel Iwaasa, and others will all be performing. New works from Jocelyn Morlock and more.
I did this last year and totally recommend. Take in the main concert, then have a drink after with me blending sounds/themes from the festival with modern electronic sounds.

out to VNM for their great ambient music festival this year nomadic streams. very well put together, well attended, well recieved, and such a fantastic collection of artists with a unique and special synergy. the title nomadic streams really clicked for me - every artist existing in their own very different and well-developed universes. the whole 3 days felt perfect, and it was a true honour to collaborate live with a cast of many people i've been long term fans of loscil, rafael anton irisarri, dj olive, crys cole, and people i'm newly fans of steve roden, marina rosenfeld, lawrence english.
thanks all. it was a pleasure.
