Patch Pulse: Somnifacient Signals and IDHAZ

On July 10, Patch Pulse presents another night of audiovisual collaborations by multimedia artists. Tune in for special live performances by electronic musicians bending space and time through sound and image.

Pierce and Matthew from Somnifacient Signals will travel while stationary, collecting and processing images, videos, sounds and field-recordings back and forth between the Alps and Montreal where they have been waiting and working.

Combining elements of Gameboy, MPC, synth, and R&B style vocals, IDHAZ creates soundscapes and beats to immerse into. IDHAZ will open with visuals by fellow true indigo cofounder rose cherami, splashing sand from the leaky side of a beach town.
