An auteur in her own right, Sara Magnan, aka Magnanime, creates a techno-house hybrid rife with experimental nuances, embracing mistakes of technology and recycling odd noises into her perpetually evolving, beat driven repertoire. Her music takes inspiration from her cosmopolitan experience, in constant reinvention and metamorphosis and not without a sociopolitical side and authenticities – during her 2012 MUTEK performance, she let loose an unhinged techno pow-wow in honour of First Nations people and an outdoor show supporting Montréal’s Occupy movement.

The past year has been major for Magnan, seeing the official release of her 12” EP Don’t Wait for Me on Chicago label Siteholder – two original tracks of dynamic tech rhythms and processed vocals on the far edge of house, plus a remix by Akufen. Other recent tracks exude slow-burning intrigue and warped tape loop vocals, sustained synth riffs, staccato beats and an evocative sample arsenal.

Live, Magnanime’s forward thinking production process and enthusiasm for listener’s reactions shines, aware of her environment she manifests a dance music experience that is a kind of exchange with the audience.
