KOREA TOWN ACID
@ Burdock (1184 Bloor St. West)
CVN | CVN is Nobuyuki Sakuma, previously of Jesse Ruins on Captured Tracks. Noboyuki’s CVN project emits a searching quality in electronic music. His wide variety in sound choice, production style, and curiosity with engaging a wide variety of artists through his Gray Matter Archives series makes his output consistently compelling. CVN has been published with Orange Milk, Where To Now?, and angoisse. He is the curator of the mix series Grey Matter Archives and is editor at the music online magazine AVYSS.
KOEOSAEME | Koeosaeme is Ryu Yoshizawa’s solo project which pursues the fusion of programming and sound art. From 2004, he has been a member of the sound artists group “OFFICE INTENZIO” under Yellow Magic Orchestra’s Yukihiro Takahashi. In addition, he is in charge of live event backup support and recordings for Ryuichi Sakamoto, Yukihiro Takahashi, Kyoka and many others. He also produces music commercially for Lotte and Square Enix.
KOREA TOWN ACID | Toronto based free form beat manipulator Jessica Cho creates swinging dance rhythms that draw from disassembled minimalism, free jazz and the more avant-garde corners of techno. With a background as a classically trained pianist Cho brings a fresh prospective to the beat driven landscape, letting seemingly abstract rhythms linger and mingle with moody textures. Her tracks ebbs and flow as electronic pulses, beats, and clicks coalesce only to transform once again. Manicured peaks and valleys are dotted with hints of what’s to come. Sonic clues lost in a feeling. Check her newest LP “Mahogani Forest” on Cosmic Resonance Records!
KAT ESTACIO | Tkaronto (Toronto)-based Kat Estacio blends delicate, abstract electronics with the traditional gong music of the Philippines to produce an engrossing, mirage-like listening experience.
