Jason Sharp & Adam Basanta (CA)

Signed on the emblematic label Constellation (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion), the composer Jason Sharp from Montreal has established himself as one of the most fascinating figures of the new Canadian music. With his famous giant baritone saxophone, he experiments with the boundaries between the body and technology by producing astonishing, physical and almost seismic low notes. He pushes his explorations even further on his last album Stand Above The Streams (2018), using the technique of circular breathing in long compositions based on a work on saturated sound.

Alongside the artist and sound designer Adam Basanta, he shapes the sound in real time using a custom MIDI interface that allows him to modify and amplify his heartbeats, breaths, as well as the sound of the instrument. An immersive instrumental experience between electronic music, electro-acoustic, free jazz and noise.
