The summer rounds out with two performers who not only create music with a unique process, but who have spent a lot of time in the local music community cultivating and contributing!

Cheldon Paterson is a trail blazer in the Toronto creative music scene. As SlowPitchSound, Cheldon transforms captured audio fragments into lush sonic landscapes using a turntable, DJ mixer and electronic devices. His unique and captivating style of musical performance has been featured around the globe, touching down in Sweden, Great Britain, Netherlands, Australia, USA and Canada. He has split bills with musical heavyweights including Steve Reich, Tim Hecker, Kid Koala, Shabazz Palaces, Wildbirds & Peacedrums and Tinariwen to name a few. Away from the stage, Cheldon stays busy mentoring and teaching the art of DJing at Off Centre DJ & Electronic Music Production School.

Heraclitus Akimbo 9pm
After buying a guitar in a fit of panic when he realized he was turning thirty, Joe Strutt was once a barely semi-competent bedroom musician. But for the past few years, making music has been mostly pushed aside in favour of his work as a "citizen archivist," maintaining long-running music blog Mechanical Forest Sound. Documenting ephemeral moments, he has posted more than 3,100 live recordings, mostly of local, independent artists.
Last year, after the sudden passing of his father, he found himself in the possession of a beautiful guitar (an original edition Fender Starcaster) and some other sundry gear. In an attempt to learn how to use a Boss RC-2 Loop Station, he plugged it into his old Radio Shack keyboard and began noodling. The result of this was A Part of My Inheritance, an album of gauzy ambient sounds that was (to his surprise) released as a tape by Arachnidiscs Recordings in an "extra limited run" that quickly sold out two editions. Further sonic explorations have added found sounds, such as shortwave “numbers stations” and the mysterious online phenomena known as Unfavorable Semicircle.
