INHABITANTS
Formed in 2004, Vancouver's Inhabitants have ascended to become one of Canada's most prominent creative music ensembles. In 2009, Inhabitants were nominated for a Juno Award for 'Instrumental Album of the Year', a National Jazz Award for 'Electric Group of the Year' and a Western Canadian Music Award for 'Instrumental Recording of the Year'. Their singular approach defies genre, melding jazz, rock, noise and free improvisation with new perspective. Trumpeter JP Carter, guitarist Dave Sikula, bassist Pete Schmitt and drummer Skye Brooks find a rare cohesiveness in Inhabitants, cultivated from years of musical collaboration in groups like Fond of Tigers, Copilots, Carsick, DarkBlueWorld, The NOW Orchestra, Tony Wilson's 6tet, and the Aeroplane Trio. Inhabitants continue to push forward into new sonic territory with "A Vacant Lot", their third full-length on Drip Audio. Spacious and expressive, the new album explores the dynamic relationship between chaos and form through experimental sound, intuitive group interplay and instrumental composition. There is new diversity in the music; rich textured landscapes augmented by electronics and feedback are contrasted with moments of intimate acoustic minimalism. A reflective mood pervades the new landscape Inhabitants occupy on A Vacant Lot, their improvisations and compositions permeated with an uncommon, yet alluring lyricism.

WE JUST STOLE A CAR
Experimental Vancouver-based ensemble presents it's third major project, entitled CHAT TAMBOUR, a "gangsterimental" "post-gamelan" alternative outfit that utilizes a new system of performance which allows any performer, conductor, or even audience member to influence the way in which material is performed. There are no set rules for which pieces are performed, in which order they are presented, in what manor each section of each piece is played, or if each piece is played in it's entirety. These decisions are made entirely in the moment with the help of specific hand signals and cues. This allows the each performance to be completely unique and tailored to the room and atmosphere in which the group is performing.

Daryn Cassie: piano
Dave Chokroun: bass
Dominic Conway: sax
John Mutter: guitar
Kevin Romain: drums
