    Pleased as hell to have Josh Fraser back in Calgary for a set as his Citadel project. This project has been a going concern for the last few years, and we’ve had the chance to witness the project morph through a number of different flavours, never once the same, and it’s always really good. This is not a surprise, however, as Fraser has been cranking out top-shelf music for years; he was a key part of the sorely-missed Discord concert series, routinely offering brutal, cathartic explosions of sound as Suicide Bomber, and also was part of a very choice vocals-only duo called Fraser-Sereda, who released a classic disc a number of years ago on Unit Structures. The Citadel material has tended towards the less face-ripping end of the sonic spectrum, but hasn’t lost any of its emotional heft in the process. A rare chance to see a singularly excellent figure exploring a truly personalized soundworld.



    Very excited to be presenting a newcomer to the Bug Incision world, another member of the very fertile scene of experimental/outward-leaning musicians in Edmonton. Originally from our Northern neighbouring city, Anderson spent some time on the west coast before returning in 2013. Since then, he’s been refining his music, which he describes as “heavily processed field recordings to create richly textured, slowly evolving soundscapes and drone pieces.” Influenced by the likes of 20th century music heavyweights Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and La Monte Young, in tandem with the cosmically-inclined avant-jazz styling of Sun Ra and the highly personalized musical visions of Ornette Coleman, Anderson spins lush, expansive pieces from a very limited amount of source material, offering his own “sonic manifestation of philosophical ideas of space and time, and their intersection with human consciousness.” His music has been released on Edmonton’s Ramshackle Day Parade label, and he will be presenting this night’s work via 4-channel amplification system.

    Duet is a new group comprised of multi-instrumentalist Jack Sinclaire and drummer Andrew Lehman. The two have been appearing all over the place for the last year or so, wherever interesting music can be found, often appearing as bandmates in all-ages stalwarts Lunatique, and Sinclaire also appeared previously on the Bug Incision stage as one half of Returnals. This duo is a drums & no-input mixing board/tape loops setup, incorporating the liberal usage of rhythmic elements and snippets of music from various “world music” recordings.
