«her voice can move mountains” – CBC Radio 3
Born in Calgary, FOONYAP is a classically-trained violinist and vocalist with an incomparable sound. Previously collaborating with Woodpigeon and Art Bergmann, her latest solo release ‘Palimpsest’ is a therapeutic reconciliation with her sheltered Chinese-Catholic heritage and the intense classical music training of her childhood. A haunting and challenging experimental-folk album, ‘Palimpsest’ has “a signature sound that alternates between vibrating lullabies and primordial heart-explosions,” (Discorder), drawing comparisons to Björk, Braids, Lhasa, and Kate Bush. Described by The Fader as “a tense and bespoke mixture of swampy electronics, strings, and vocals that flash with a bold volcanic brilliance,” the album has captivated audiences across Canada and was named #6 in the Top 30 albums of the year by the Toronto Star.
FOONYAP’s performances captivate audiences with looped violin, mandolin, and voice creating “textured complexities” that showcase her “gifted and powerful voice” (The Reflector).
Alder & Ash (Montreal)
This show marks the release of Alder & Ash's second album: Clutched in the Maw of the World, as well as the rerelease of their first album on Lost Tribe Sound.
Alder & Ash is a counterpoint of two extremes. The music lies in stillness, introversion, and penitence. It lies in violence, cacophony, and angst. Alder & Ash plays solo cello with loop pedal to create improvised minimal classical music, with influence of doom metal, ambient, post-rock and noise.
