Guelph's High Priests of the Unholy Drone™, Snake Church bring their soul-atomizing long-tone experimentalism to a noise ordinance hearing near you. Revs Michel Mucci (https://mmucci.com/) and Ben Grossman (https://macrophone.org/) seek to rewire your synapses through carefully crafted microtonal tuning systems, vibrating strings, oscillating circuits and, sometimes, just a loud-ass solid-state improv or two. https://vimeo.com/204986661 https://soundcloud.com/ben_grossman/sets/snake-church .. Michael Peter Olsen is a Toronto-based cellist, engineer, producer, film composer and grammy-nominated songwriter whose experience spans the Canadian music scene and beyond. He has recorded and performed on over 100 recordings including Drake VIEWS, Arcade Fire Funeral, K-OS Joyful Rebellion, Jim Guthrie Now More than Ever and The Hidden Cameras The Smell of Our Own. Outside of the realm of pop Michael has always had a keen interest in contemporary electro-acoustic and experimental composition, using his degree at UofT as an opportunity to play some weird shit. Always interested in new ways to look at his lifetime instrument, he recently completed a collection of solo works for electric cello and various collaborators called “Yearning Flow” to be release soon. www.uncomfortablesilence.com - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COMiNG SOON: THE PiNG: ..
