The Invocation music series comes full circle this February, working once again with the incredible Rebecca Foon, aka SALTLAND. The series was birthed, almost fully formed on a cold February night in 2015, headlined by a performance from Rebecca inside a (now defunct) gallery space on College st. We are thrilled that the very first headliner of the series will be helping us ring it in the 5th year of Invocation.

From Constellation Records:
SALTLAND is the project of cellist and composer Rebecca Foon, who has been a fixture of the Montréal music community for two decades, since moving to the city from her native Vancouver in the late 1990s. She co-founded the Juno Award-winning contemporary chamber group Esmerine in 2002 and was a core member of the celebrated cult post-punk band Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra from 2001-2008 and the experimental instrumental collective Set Fire To Flames.
Foon began composing solo work in 2010, featuring multi-layered cello and hushed, stark vocals that explored the intersection of drone, neo-classical, improv, dream-pop and minimalism.

For her second Saltland album A Common Truth, Foon set out to create a more rigorously solo work, using her cello as the predominant source for all the music and sounds on the record. Working with producer/engineer Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes), Foon combines both unadulterated and processed cello to forge the entire sonic landscape – the notable exception being violin and pump organ contributed by special guest Warren Ellis (Nick Cave, Grinderman, The Dirty Three) for the album’s four instrumentals.

Climate action is of particular importance to Rebecca Foon as she has devoted much of her life in recent years to working for decarbonization, land conservation, renewable energy and urban green strategies – as a member of the Canadian cooperative consultancy Sustainability Solutions Group, as founder of the Peruvian-based rain forest conservation charity Junglekeepers, and as co-founder of Pathway to Paris, an international concert series bringing together musicians, writers and environmental activists to help raise consciousness and create action in support of a robust international climate agreement.

SYZYGY is an a/v duo whose music is a hypnogogic landscape of ambient sound, incorporating field recordings and video from the natural environment combined with processed conventional instruments.
The duo features Colin Fisher who is a Toronto based multi-instrumentalist/composer/improviser active within various communities and aesthetics. His solo work explores what he feels the essential power/potential of music is that exceeds classification and finds itself in listening deeply to ones biological organism and its connection to greater creation.
Ilyse Krivel is a sound artist, photographer, videographer, and writer from Toronto. Through her creative work she aims to illuminate the ephemeral and mysterious forces that flow between the cracks of matter.
