Sound artist Mark Templeton and filmmaker Kyle Armstrong have collaborated on a film/record released as a 12” LP and DVD in tribute to Canadian media visionary Marshall McLuhan. The audiovisual elements include both original and sampled film and audio inspired by the media visionary. The LP and DVD was mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi and pressed on 140g vinyl.
2015 marks the 104th birthday of Canadian visionary Marshall McLuhan. With each passing year the revelatory nature of his prophetic vision becomes more evident. The global village is becoming a distinct reality in this technological age. McLuhan’s ability to predict the full impact of technology and media on our culture decades in advance is unprecedented. And his deep concern and warnings to us in these drastic changes in civilization are rarely heeded as we head full-steam ahead past the point of no-return, the consequences which are increasingly self-evident.
This is the complete thisquietarmy live performance that took place at Centro Cultural Sao Paulo in Brazil on June 23rd, 2013. The concert marked the end of the TQA Brazilian tour where he performed 14 shows through May & June 2013 to promote the split LP with Sao Paulo-based band Labirinto released on Dissenso Recordings.
For this “homecoming” Brazilian gig, thisquietarmy performs a special encore with two members from Labirinto: Muriel Curi on drums/electronics & Ricardo Pereira on bass.
The DVD compiles and crossovers video footage by Claud Peer & Rodrigo Florentino with thisquietarmy’s live visuals and the live soundboard audio recording from CCSP. The whole thing was entirely edited & mastered by Eric Quach back at TQA.HQ in Montreal, Canada.
The DVD includes 4 live photographs of the performance by Daniel Moura, and the package was designed, printed, hand-cut and assembled by Eric Quach/TQA Records. The DVDs are silver/black DVD-Rs, burnt as NTSC and should work on all new DVD players and DVD-roms.

I think it’s safe to say that space, and more specifically, the sun and planets, have been the inspiration behind a large number of musical projects over the years. While this work deals with some of this familiar subject, it does so with the emphasis on time and particularly by how it is marked by movement within the solar system.
The piece “Ecliptic Plane” was initially conceived as a gallery exhibit exploring the synchronicity of the planets and their moons. Once it was finished, it became clear that any release would need to be expanded to include a more complete picture of the solar system. Each track then came about through a combination of examining the properties of the subjects and a series of mathematical music experiments conducted in parallel.
The tracks “Ecliptic Plane” and “Resonant TNOs” extensively use the data from the planets, their moons and other objects to create their rhythms and harmonies. In the case of “Resonant TNOs” the musical scale was derived directly from the frequency ratios of the orbits of the titular objects themselves.
Whilst “Approaching/Receding Sun” and “Oort Cloud” are essentially impressionistic in nature, they are the results of mathematical experiments that have links with their subjects through mood and metaphor.

William Ryan Fritch (aka Vieo Abiungo) returns with a gorgeous fifteen track follow-up to 2011’s And the World is Still Yawning. Trying to classify Fritch’s sound by genre has become almost futile. He effortlessly weaves together a huge breadth of earthy beat-laden experimental, classical, and folk. This is the third full-length for Vieo Abiungo, and this newest installment comes in the form of a CD and DVD release titled, Thunder May Have Ruined the Moment.
Fritch enlisted the help of award-winning film director, Pete Monro (Days Together) to create several short experimental films for the DVD. The films offer up thick psychotropic visuals and hazy moss grown memories that seamlessly meld into barrage of twisted imagery and nature based decay. Though the music may sound at times like the product of electronic instrumentation, the entirety of the film and accompanying album’s music was created strictly using acoustic instruments played entirely by Fritch, and recorded primarily using analog tape machines. At times tranquil, tortured, or trembling with quiet joy, Thunder May Have Ruined the Moment is an album of light and shadow, the human experience given voice.
