The first annual Sound In Motion festival saw the likes of multi-talented Montreal-based artist Jean-Patrice Rémillard--who makes music under the moniker of Pheek--rounding out the first group of acts for the festival's opening night.
We had the opportunity to capture a short interview with Pheek minutes before his set, in which he outlines some of his attitudes regarding live performances and his new approaches to the live show. JP also discussed with us his experiences with the ever-growing "bridge" between Montreal and Toronto in the electronic music community; a creative force he believes to be driven by repression from government arts cuts and other factors. To JP, these unsustainable times foster the highest levels of creativity; an unsustainability which is celebrated by he and his peers.
Check out our behind-the-scenes look at Pheek's live performance from Sound in Motion 2012. In addition to being a top-quality musician, Pheek is also a mastering engineer, and the man behind Montreal's Archipel Musique -- an important player in Canada's musical ecosystem to say the least.
