Cloud Circuit



Poetrysound ensemble Cloud Circuit finds inspiration in communication gli//tc;hh()h, brok()n spee?()-eech, and contact lost. Its motors are the grey areas of connection, those lost threads, dropped signals, failures of technology, and outages at the edge of night. In performance, Cloud Circuit’s approach is collaborative and improvisational; its sound composed, dissected, and refracted.


Deanna Radford channels her poetry as deconstructed word events, Jeremy Young plays sine tones in flux and amplified surfaces, and Cloud Circuit’s extended ensemble includes Philippe Vandal on sax and electrons and on occasion, Alexandre St-Onge on bass glitches.


Having shared the stage with David Grubbs, Ora Clementi (crys cole & James Rushford), Christopher Tignor, Flying Hórses, Skin Tone, Alex Zhang Hungtai, Paul Dutton, Lea Bertucci, and others,  Cloud Circuit is scheduled to release its debut EP, Bur sting brea k’r in partnership with Archive Officielle Publications in the electric lights of spring 2020.

Le groupe de poésie-musique Cloud Circuit trouve son inspiration dans les rup/tures de communications, les paroles bri-sées, les zones grises de connexion, les pertes de signal, les échecs de nos technologies et les pannes nocturnes. Improvisées et collaboratives, les performances de Cloud Circuit façonnent, dissèquent et réfractent des amalgames sonores.


Deanna Radford performe des mots déconstruits et Jeremy Young, des ondes sonores et des surfaces amplifiées. La version augmentée du groupe inclut également Philippe Vandal au saxophone et aux électrons, ainsi qu’Alexandre St-Onge à la basse et aux électroniques.


Cloud Circuit a partagé la scène avec de nombreux artistes dont David Grubbs, Ora Clementi (crys cole & James Rushford), Christopher Tignor, Flying Hórses, Skin Tone, Alex Zhang Hungtai, Paul Dutton et Lea Bertucci. L'ensemble publiera son premier EP, Bur sting brea k’r chez Archive Officielle Publications une soirée magnétique d’automne 2019.
