Jean-Sébastien Truchy has performed in Montreal since 1996. His work is inspired significantly by the idea of emptiness, in its implications with respect to duality, the world and (semiotic) signs. He aims to create music that challenges the notion of concept in both the musical
and philosophical language, in order to destabilize his audience and confront them with the daily concepts that manage, direct and define our lives. JS Truchy creates music characterized by the use of electronic instruments and vocals both sung and processed. The result is a sort of organized chaos of texture filed with beauty and fulfillment. He also runs the label Los discos enfantasmes.

Charles Barabé has been interested by pop music, free jazz, contemporary compositions, improvisation and noise; and now he tries to combine all those influences in his compositions. His work is a reflection on the emotional scars (in a personal and collective way) and the shadows of the past. Despite rare live performances, he is active in the cassettes community and runs a cassette label, called La Cohu, since 2012.

Samuel Bobony (Black Givre) is a musician who creates explosive pieces which combines drum, sampling and synthesizer manipulation performed as real time live compositions. He is an active participant of the Montreal music scene playing with Avec le Soleil Sortant de sa Bouche (Constellation Records) and Héliodrome (Endemik Music) as well as being a long-time collaborator with Jeunesse Cosmique.

Burden is Caitlin Hutchison, Doreen Girard, and Shelagh Pizey-Allen. Formed in Winnipeg, MB in 2011, their collaboration emerged out of working together at Negative Space, a collectively-run venue and art space. Burden creates composed and improvised works for the amplified piano soundboard, exploring physical properties of the piano: tension, tuning, and resonance.
