A fixture in various and overlapping local music scenes, Nick Storring has created looped cello dance pop, austere textures for Picastro's sleep rock, and free-ranging improvisation in The Knot and I Have Eaten The City. But for the past couple years, he's also been making a mark as an composer, with his 2011 Toronto Emerging Composer award from the Canadian Music Centre leading to material that is now being released on his new Gardens album. Joe Strutt spoke to Storring to discover more about his musical green thumb.
Our pals Most People are heading east this weekend - making the drive all the way to the coast to participate in Wavelength's first-ever Halifax Pop Explosion showcase! The long-running festival is one of the Canadian indie nation's best annual parties, and we are very excited to participate. Toronto has seen Most People mesmerize audiences everywhere from Feast in the East to Silent Shout to Wavelength's own NICE partay and our recent Island Show; Pop Montreal got a taste this past month, and now it's Halifax's turn.
