About this event

Artistes

Alex Samaras

Owen Stewart-Robertson

Bio

Tryal est un groupe Torontois qui interprète les chansons d’Alex Samaras. Leur premier album, Companion, rassemble des compositions pleines de charisme utilisant la sophistication de la pop électronique comme moyen d’exploration. Les arrangements oniriques et souples donnent lieu à une foisonnance toute singulière : les rythmes se dissolvent en des mélodies agiles, légères. Leur second album, DogGone, a mené Alex à écrire en solo des chansons qui parlent de malentendus, d’amitié, et de la difficulté à se connecter les un.e.s aux autres. Tryal, ce sont des ami.e.s qui comptent aussi parmi les meilleur.e.s musicien.ne.s de Toronto.

Tryal c’est : Alex Samaras (Beverley Glenn Copeland/Queer Songbook Orchestra), Christine Bougie (Bahamas/Otterville) Johnny Spence (The Weather Station), Evan Cartwright (Tasseomancy/U.S Girls), Josh Cole (Martha and Rufus Wainwright/Thom Gill).

Pour ce concert, Alex sera accompagné de Owen Stewart-Robertson.

Owen Stewart-Robertson

Bio

Tryal is a Toronto based band that plays songs by Alex Samaras. Their first release, Companion, is full of charismatic compositions that treat electronic pop sophistication as a springboard for all manner of exploration. Lithe dream-like arrangements give way to peculiar lushness; beats dissolve into weightless melodies. Their second record, DogGone, found Alex on a solo journey writing songs about miscommunication, friendship and the struggle to connect. Tryal is made up of a group of friends who also happen to be Toronto’s finest players.

Tryal is: Alex Samaras (Beverley Glenn Copeland/Queer Songbook Orchestra), Christine Bougie (Bahamas/Otterville) Johnny Spence (The Weather Station), Evan Cartwright (Tasseomancy/U.S Girls), Josh Cole (Martha and Rufus Wainwright/Thom Gill).

For this performance, Alex will be playing with Owen Stewart-Robertson.

Organizer Les Sympathiques

Organizer of TRYAL

Les Sympathiques is a nonprofit (RLRQ, C. C-38) collective of Montréal musicians, other artists, and supporters who believe that the best way to develop our practice is through performance and sharing with the wider community. Central to this goal is presenting music that we deem rich in artistic quality (i.e. music with depth in its technical, semiotic, and innovative aspects). Our members and participating artists hail primarily from the jazz, classical, and experimental scenes. Our goal is to be a catalyst and binding agent for our musical community; one which stimulates creativity through providing:

-a space and framework for quotidian performance,
-a forum for discussing topical philosophical, theoretical, and practical issues,
-and a conduit for sharing the fruits of this process with each other, and also with the public at large.

We believe that challenging and sophisticated artwork need not remain only in the realm of the concert hall, nor should valued public exhibition be conserved for the occasion of grand festivals. It is our position that a creative state of mind is often easier to attain in a casual and comfortable atmosphere, just as excellence is only achieved through process and continuous effort. Moreover, the quest for creative excellence gains a greater dimensionality and significance when it is undertaken collectively.
