Jerusalem In My Heart:

Jerusalem In My Heart makes their long-awaited return to London since playing Aeolian Hall in 2013! Jerusalem In My Heart (JIMH) has been a live audio-visual happening since 2005, with Montréal-based producer and musician Radwan Ghazi Moumneh at its core. Moumneh is a Lebanese national who has spent a large part of his adult life in Canada and has been a fixture of the Montréal independent music community from his early days as a guitarist in various notable 90s bands to his tireless activity as a sound engineer and producer over the last decade. Moumneh is also active in the Beirut and Lebanese experimental music scenes, where he spends a few months every year.

No two Jerusalem In My Heart events have ever been the same: configurations have ranged from 2 to 24 participants, with varying degrees of theatrical stage action alongside a film/video component. Moumneh's vocals and purposefully blown-out sonic sensibility have been the consistent thread, but the music of JIMH has never repeated itself either – one of the reasons Moumneh has resisted any official documentation or definitive recording of the project over the past eight years. At long last, in 2012 Moumneh cleared time and mental space to record a song cycle that cements the foundations of JIMH as an intensely vocal-driven musical project.

Scattered Clouds:

Scattered Clouds' sound is dark, experiential and post-apocalyptic. It layers artificial enstasy with bouts of unsteady euphoria and romanticism. Brooding rhythms and precise noise from this experimental 3-piece underline film noir imagery and auto-fictional narratives.

Wormwood:

Wormwood is an electro-acoustic duo comprised of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Christina Willatt and multi-instrumentalist/producer Andrew Wenaus based in London, Ontario. They bring together IDM and vocal pop. The project aims to capture feelings of anxiety and ecstasy in response to the contradictions of contemporary pop culture: beauty and mystery, simplicity and chaos, pleasure and angst, responsibility and fantasy, equality and the hauntings of celebrity. A combination of melodic lyricism with bursts of rapid-fire rhythmic precision, their music is a conflation of traditional songwriting combed through and capturing bursts and bits from the mediascape of excess. Their 2013 debut album Sunfloating (self-released) and 2014 EP Microdot (Punctum Records) were both received with critical acclaim. They recently appeared on the Touched – Music for Macmillan Cancer Support compilation alongside Bibio, Autechre, Plaid, Nils Frahm, Machinedrum, Zachary Gray, O’Haara, and A Souvenir, among others. Their most recent album, O, (A Person Disguised as People) was released on 19 August 2016. Having performed in Canada and the United States they combine live instrumentation, computers, and electronics. The band is currently collaborating with Koine Ensemble for live performances and plans to develop an interactive live performance for ballet and contemporary dance in Toronto.
