Another month, another edition of Switched on Ssynths at House of Targ; this one really took aim at the 1980s, with some serious Front 242-style sounds from Iceland's Dada Pogrom and synth-pop from Montreal's Automelodi. Ottawa's own Hard Science (a.k.a. Arturo, who you might recall from earlier blog posts drumming with My Dad Vs. Yours) started things off with his Hard Science project.
Xavier Paradis has been in the music business for a while; he was releasing electronic music back in the 1990s as Arnaud Lazlaud. He recrafted himself as Automelodi and continued with the synthetic sound. His set featured an unnatural amount of smoke machine use, so the following photos are all a little hazy ....
Dada Pogrom brought some home videos and monk outfits to garnish their minimalist techno with.
And so on!
Another fine selection of sounds.
