Montreal Music Scene Throws a Change-Up

In Gigs, Montréal on March 27, 2010 at 2:45 pm

We all know about the super exciting lineup of concerts scheduled for Montreal this spring. Yeasayer, JJ, XX, Titus Andronicus, Japandroids, the reopening of the roof at Friendship Cove, etc. There is much promised for music lovers on the island we call home this spring.

Hidden away by the tidal wave of anticipated shows though are some of the little odd ones, the ones that I think can be most fun in the right mood and with the right crowd. In this category of little odd concerts I intend not to miss is Defragmented, being performed at l’envers (aka that loft place at 185 Van Horne) on April 9. Defragmented is performed by Finnish composer and inventor of analog instruments Marko Timlin and US based ‘flute and feedback duo’ thenumber46 (Suzanne Thorpe and Phillip White). Honestly, I have no idea what to expect from this, but with an explanation like “Both Timlin and the number46 employ improvisation and non-linear analog systems to create music in which a delicate balance exists between the human and machine” on their website, I am certainly intrigued.
