In many ways, the work of Vancouver-based singer and sound artist Ian William Craig defies description. While he works primarily with sound as a composer and classically trained vocalist, he’s also an award-winning printmaker, writer, and photographer.

His music, too, eludes strict classification. He is known for using broken tape machines, and his songs are a swirling, alchemic blend of majestic, manipulated vocals, well-constructed keyboard melodies, and a wash of gentle drone.

Recently, Craig has become fascinated with the notion of what the process of memory might physically sound like. By placing his own body at the centre of this exploration, he has begun to create sonic spaces that present physical deterioration as the source of the sublime.

Catch Ian William Craig on May 10, 2019 at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre (850 4th St. SE). Doors open at 7:00pm with the show at 8:00pm.

Enter before noon on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 for your chance to win a pair of tickets.
