Post Dark Ambient vancouver scene??
I was just curious if there was a scene in Vancouver for Dark ambient music. (This includes harsh noise/martial industrial/neo-classical/visual experimental). When I lived on the island, there were often shows like this and usually the bands (like Funerary Call, Sistrenatus, Flatgrey) were coming from Van, but since moving here I have found no trace of any of this scene. Whats the deal?

I believe there exists such a scene. There used to be a couple of people (Keith and Colin) on the old BR board that would advertise shows along those lines. I don't think they've showed up here yet. In fact, the Cobalt has been known to put on the odd noise show.

Could always check stiffjosh's stuff with Noise Tribe Zero... and an old buddy and co-worker does regular shows with his project, Ejaculation Death Rattle.

I saw this thread, but didn't post because really all I have to add to it is, "there is no dark ambient scene in Vancouver. At all."

There is a infinitesimal noise scene, but that's noise not dark ambient.

There is an even more infinitesimal industrial scene, but again that's industrial not dark ambient.

There are moments of dark ambient that you can find amongst the material of the three (?) industrial bands left in vancouver, but that's about it.

It's depressing really, but dark ambient shows are anathema to the idea of a 'live' setting anyways. Ask anyone who's seen Sunn O)))

...not the best reply. but it's a start:

http://noisefanatics.com --> Canada forum...
http://chondriticsound.com/forum/viewfo ... ef9fcb1691
..although, a lot of shows don't get posted here (i think they use carrier pigeon to send casette tape invites to their friends or something)

I don't really want to start a debate, but the term "industrial" means something else in europe and some parts of north america (including victoria).

ok, only about half as many bands as the Tendonitis fest, but I believe this show on Wednesday (June 10) will be using both stages. I'm not familiar with all of the bands but at least half of them are noise or ambient noise. yellowthief is a riff-busy band that should try get on some metal bills imho. Also, I just snagged a "dj" spot.

FAKE SLEEP has finally returned, with its next incarnation happening at VIVO on Friday July 31st. This version will include performances by:


FREIDA ABTAN
United Dairies recording artist + occasional Nurse With Wound collaborator from Montreal

"Freida Abtan's music is a strange cinematography of metaphysical conundrums and invisible events. Contained herein is time frozen, inspected, and unwoven into infinite threads of unusual shapes and proportions. Abtan's subtle flourishes are impressive, magical and transportive, sometimes simultaneously fantastic and terrifying; their vivid fidelity and unequivocal crispness weave particular narratives with no small degree of confidence. From the beginning her work is organic, sounding less like music and more like probing the deepest recesses of haunted caverns and finding hidden worlds tucked away there." - Brainwashed.

EMPTY LOVE
analogue drones from East Vancouver

REFLEKTIONS
dreamboat polyphonic movements

SECRET PYRAMID
solo vibrations from half of Solars

THE ROBOT RIM
reclusive hum from an abandoned basement


Doors open at 9 pm with the first band on at 9:30 sharp!

-

Saturday, August 1, 2009
8:00pm - 11:00pm
Little Mountain Studios
195 East 26th Avenue (at Main)

BROWN

electro-acoustic soundscapes from Portland's J. Brown,
perhaps better known for his work in drone-metal group
Tecumseh, who've released excellent LPs on Important
Records, Anarchymoon + Black Horizons.


SQUIM

Olde English Spelling Bee recording artist from Portland.
Squim's last LP 'Zephyrus' made a number of top-ten lists
last year, including highly influential radio stations WFMU
and WNYU. Keith Fullerton Whitman described Squim as
possessing "Fennesz-ian clarity" balanced with "misted
atmosphere and granular environmental noise; very nice"


A STORY OF RATS

Seattle's Garek Druss, of Dull Knife + also of Tecumseh.
time-bending polyphonic tones, repetitions, distortions.
following last year's incredibly well-received collaborative
LP with Boise's Pussygutt, described by Crucial Blast as
"the most shadowy + mysterious of albums, a vinyl-only
outre doom epic; weird and darkly evocative" new ASOR
LPs out on What We Do Is Secret + Olde English Spelling
Bee in the next few months.


AHNA

Vancouver-based two-piece, ceaselessly shifting through
one wildly inventive permutation after another, yet always
remaining distinctly recognizable in execution; from violin-
based dronescapes to crust-inflected power-violence to
bottom-end heavy doom or noise sublimations.
