Vicky Mettler solo song project, based in Montreal, QC. It combines guitar, voice and electronics into weird song forms that stagger between structure and improvisation. Kee Avil evolved from playing the guitar with broken cymbals and drumsticks into creating strange beats glued together by samples of screws dropped into crystal bowls. A debut EP was released on Black Bough Records in March 2018.

Audiovisual project by musician/ artist, Lily Taylor and new media artist and educator, Sean Miller. Together they present music that explores sound textures, drones, minimalism, noise, and improvisation with generative video projections.
