Event Description

The 6th Edition of Wonderment opens with ambient and electro-acoustic performances by

ELISA THORN (Vancouver BC)

Since graduating from the UBC School of Music in 2011, Elisa Thorn has become a much sought after addition to the Canadian creative music scene, known for her skilled use of extended techniques, electronic effects, and unconventional uses of harp. Her music, which combines influences of post-rock, jazz, classical and indie, is propelled by two artistic objectives: firstly, how to create music that is both abstract and accessible; and secondly, how to lead a band with harp in a way does not compromise sensitivity with it’s boldness, or aesthetic beauty with it’s curiosity. Interested in the intersection between composed and improvised music, she is involved with many projects including HUE, The Giving Shapes and Gentle Party, who released an album under the Phonometrograph label that was longer-listed for the Polaris Prize in 2017.

METEORIC TWIN (Galiano Island BC)

Meteoric Twin is an electronic music duo based on what is known as Galiano Island. They use altered voice, field recordings, modular synthesis, and rhythm to create ambient, other world music rooted in feminist sci-fi and sung in the constructed language Láadan.
