International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Thisquietarmy is an experimental guitar-based project created by Montrealer Eric Quach. Revolving around improvised drone music, he pushes his sound experiments further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk/shoegaze, krautrock/spacerock and black/doom metal. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive and engaging landscapes. Since 2005, Thisquietarmy has released nearly 50 albums on more than 30 different labels and has accumulated nearly 600 performances in some 40 countries.

Philippe Léonard's artistic career is undoubtedly linked to media arts. Working with film, photography and video, his theoretical and aesthetic reflections focus on the complex temporality of still and moving images, the spectral dimension of physical spaces and extended documentary practices. Since 2009, his works have been presented in numerous festivals and galleries around the world. Director of 16mm films for the concerts of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Philippe Leonard formed the A/V duo Alchemic Rites with Eric Quach, an experimental alchemy project between cinema and sound.
