Amy Horvey, Nicole Lizée, P-Love and Ben Reimer will premiere a new piece by Nicole Lizée entitled Sasktronica. The piece will create a Saskatchewan-based retro-futurism where Sask-based relics, sonics, visuals, semiotics, and experiences are assimilated to create a rave.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Catchment

Catchment

Inhabiting the borderlands of improvised and composed music, Amy Horvey’s second album Catchment is an exploration of the geography of Saskatchewan, constructed on sound objects and sonic artifacts recorded in and around Saskatoon. This independent release is based on collaborations with composers and musicians Cassandra Miller, IGoldschneider, Jeff Morton, Valerie Hall (organ), and Steven Reed (recording engineer).

Recorded at PAVED Arts Saskatoon and edited/mastered at Robot Homestead.

This album was produced with the support of the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
