Canadian sound artist crys cole and Australian polymath Oren Ambarchi carve out an intimate and human sonic space across a diverse array of compositional approaches, sound sources, fidelities, and textures. Partners both creatively and romantically, this unique duo reimagines electro-acoustic music, not simply as “abstract” sound, but as a diary, a love poem, a dream.

Oren Ambarchi is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and musical polymath who has been releasing records with the frequency of someone who prefers studio time to sleep. His remarkably prolific and diverse oeuvre since the 90's has included releases such as Grapes From The Estate (2004), Audience Of One & Sagittarian Domain (both 2012), Quixotism (2014) & Hubris (2016). A voracious collaborator and musical explorer Ambarchi has worked with an endless stream of notable artists including Alvin Lucier, Keiji Haino, Jim O’Rourke, Ricardo Villalobos and many more. For the past 10-years Ambarchi has run the Black Truffle label, releasing his own projects and those of his close collaborators alongside important historic works. Ambarchi was the cover artists of the August 2019 issue of the Wire magazine (UK). His latest solo release is Simian Angel (Editions Mego 2019).

crys cole is a Canadian sound artist working in composition, improvised performance and sound installation. Generating subtle and imperfect sounds through haptic gestures and seemingly mundane materials, she creates texturally nuanced works that continuously retune the ear. Cole has performed worldwide both solo and in an array of collaborations, and has ongoing duo projects with Oren Ambarchi and James Rushford (Ora Clementi). She has been published by Black Truffle (AU), Penultimate Press (UK), Ultra Eczema (BE), caduc. (CA), Bocian (PL), Another Timbre (UK), Students of Decay (US) and Infrequency editions (CA/DE). Her work has been exhibited in Canada, Russia, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, the UK and Thailand.


Please approach one of the show organizers if you feel unsafe or uncomfortable by any behaviour at the show.

This event will take place on unceded Coast Salish Territories, specifically of the Lekwungen and WSÁNEĆ peoples. As we focus on building artistic and cultural bridges, we acknowledge the rich cultural history of the many peoples and rituals that have been affected by the ongoing process of dispossession and colonialism. We hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people.
