Destroy Vancouver is an experimental music and sound art series curated by John Brennan and Elisa Ferrari. Coalescing around improvised forms of music and sound art, DV combines a broad range of experimental music genres and sound art aesthetics and brings together international improvisers with local and national sound artists and avant-garde musicians.
- CHRIS CORSANO is a drummer who has been operating at the intersections of free improvisation, avant-rock, and noise music since the late 1990s.
- ERIN SEXTON is a Canadian artist who grows crystals, builds antennas, and observes events. Her installations and performances are playfully minimal, exploring how we experience matter and space-time. She works with knots, electromagnetics, site, sound, and various physical processes.
- EVAN PARKER was born in Bristol in 1944 and began to play the saxophone at the age of 14. Initially he played alto and was an admirer of Paul Desmond; by 1960 he had switched to tenor and soprano, following the example of John Coltrane, a major influence who, he would later say, determined “my choice of everything”.
- SCANT INTONE is the solo project of Canadian artist Constantine Katsiris dedicated to experiments in modern audio. The output varies from stark minimalist tones to densely complex textures with a sound palette that incorporates elements of field recordings, radio frequencies, hand-drawn waveforms, raw data, and digital sound synthesis.
