BRICK QUARTET (MTL/NZ)
The Brick Quartet consists of three musicians from Montreal, Canada—Vicky Mettler on guitar, Raphaël Foisy-Couture on bass and Jacob Desjardins on drums joined on tour this fall by New Zealand saxophonist Jeff Henderson. The group stems from an impromptu recording session in September 2013, which was later released as an album titled ‘Built like a Brick Shithouse’. The music brings together sounds from jazz, European free improv, blues and western folk music with dismantled rock rhythms and jagged noise.
“It’s punch after punch under a heavy strobe, until all that’s left is a willing pulp of flesh now able to understand that there’s few musics are ferocious and independent as jazz. Those left to still call its name do so with a passion that is unmatched. Henderson, Mettler, Foisy and Lachance are but a chosen few.”

Sonar encapsulates the shifting field of local sound art explorations: the term originated as an acronym meaning “Sound Navigation And Ranging”.
Reflecting connections to multimedia and performance based practices, and fuelled by support from a DIY underground music scene, Edmonton is now a base for sound artists exploring the technical and conceptual boundaries of this interdisciplinary medium.
Sonar will feature a diverse range of sound projects through recordings, interactive sound environments and sound installations referencing noise, electroacoustic, experimental and minimalist sound art practices.
SONAR: Sound Art Explorations by Edmonton Artists is curated by Kristy Trinier.
