Ingvar is a one man band, born in Athens, Greece. Drawing from swedish influences Ingvar creates topographies of atmosphere and ambience. It started in 2010, stealing time from the main occupation which is architecture. It started with 1 ep and 1 album and the second ep came in 2016 called Human Nature. Since then, Ingvar now resides in Stockholm, pursuing the creation of a second album.
The project 'Human Nature' tries to discover what human deeply means. Drawing inspiration from philosophy and sociology, every song takes on an attribute of human nature.
Human nature is to be conscious and to desire. We are rational and social creatures, but we become who we are in society. We construct a self by bridging doubt by faith— in ourselves (aesthetic self); in others (ethical self) or in God (religious self), but this is only artificial and an illusion. Being in harmony with the environment and with all species is the core of the human nature. The human is always in between choices. Always having doubts whether to choose right or not. In truth, whatever you choose, you will have done the right choice. Dealing with the outcome, whatever that is, is what makes you stronger as a human.
The human is clinging to hold on to situations for various reasons. Learning to let go when that is needed, is what makes us better as a human. Being humble and conscious to our existence, we become a medium of energy and contemplate together with the world around us. Connect with the world and we become wiser as a human. From stardust we have come and to stardust we will return. The very essence of the human nature is that of the universe. Be one with the universe and you shall become consistent as a human. The very substance of human nature is love. We all come from the same source, treat everyone as your own and we become kinder as a human.Believe or do not believe is a trivial matter. To some, god is a higher power, to others the soil that feeds them. Whether you believe or not, the only important thing is to find and be true to yourself and we become complete as a human.

grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist from Fredericton, NB. He has produced works for Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Form CDT, Morris Palter, and Division 85 Films. His work and performances have been described as “rich & curiously cool landscapes”, “sensitive, sophisticated & powerful” and “transfixing”. Specializing in classical minimalism and electronic music, grej seeks to merge these worlds to create truly unique sounds, rhythms, and textures.
Chasing the Path was commissioned by Hanna Kiel (Human Body Expression) and was presented under the same title by DanceWorks in March 2018 in Toronto, Ont. The piece investigates the beauty and pain of memory.
Grej explores the relationship between classical/contemporary music with electronic sound design. Starting from a pure acoustic world featuring piano, cello, percussion and organ, the thematic material journeys through various stages of distortion and manipulation until reaching a cryptic synth-driven climax.

“The river that everything drags is known as violent, but nobody calls violent the margins that arrest her.”
This quote from Bertolt Brecht is the best way to portray FLEUVE, the devastating new album of belgian outfit THOT. After a decade of challenging its music across several albums, EPs, videos, alternative versions, remixes and european tours, the gang lead by Grégoire Fray is going to bring a breath of fresh air in the industrial-rock and post-rock genres. Produced by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna) and engineered in live circumstances, FLEUVE features 9 songs built around a powerful drums/bass/guitar trio, on which passionate vocals, heavy synths, clarinet laments and bulgarian choirs melt together perfectly. Thereby, FLEUVE is a luminous ode to the european continent and its cultural history, to nature’s immuable inspiration, to women and transcendance.

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
