Mai Mai Mai was born on a little island of the Aegean Sea around 30years ago. Since childhood, he followed his parents around Europe and the Near East, assimilating the different cultures, atmospheres and sonorities of the places he was involuntarily taken to. Short periods of time which were intense enough to leave indelible traces. This project is the transposition of those experiences into music and sounds: a mix of drone and ambient, steamy rhythmics, field recordings and sound-scapes which lead us to ancient and arcane ages, on the border between east and west. After wandering for so long, he’s now living in a little village on the Ionic Coast, in the South of Italy.
Aun is an electronic music duo that comes by the mysterious name AUN are based in Montreal, Canada: musician Martin Dumais (guitar, electronics and more) joined forces with fellow musician and video artist Julie Leblanc to form the duo that is now well-known for their guitar-based dark ambient and experimental music. Since AUN’s appearance on the music scene in 2007, the band has since released numerous albums, and has performed internationally at several major festivals and venues. Covering a variety of styles and genres such as industrial, shoegaze, kosmische, their work has gradually evolved from their early psychedelic/doom sound into more refined ambient soundscapes that are less heavy and severe. Their music could be described as revelatory or (paradoxically) illuminating. It is meant to be listened to closely and attentively like a meditation, in order for its multiple layers and sound textures to be appreciated.
Thisquietarmy is the experimental guitar-based project of Eric Quach from Montreal, Quebec, Canada – active since 2005. Revolving around improvised guitar-based drone music, he takes his sonic experimentations further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk, shoegaze, krautrock, post-rock, black metal and doom metal to them. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive and engaging dreamscapes. His live performances are mostly presented as a real-time score to hypnotic ethereal visuals, which he creates himself for each performance.
