Kenny Roux’s handmade, analogue electronics experiments reference an imagined folk history/future of electronic music, and enmesh the aural and the visual. His previous experiments include Speaker Switch Box, The New Suitcase, Tape for Two, and Signature Series. He is a former artist in residence at the Western Front and has performed at the Chroma Reading Series, Gnarnia, Saint George’s Marsh, Access Artist Run Centre, the 50-50 Gallery, Open Space, and in the Signal and Noise and the Open Circuits festivals. Currently he is working on a public
interactive audio installation in Vancouver.
Pedal Decay is the solo outing of Speedy Weaver a member of the Montreal based experimental music collective Set Fire to Flames. In his hometown of Victoria, B.C., Speedy performs with the primitive improv group IMP(S).
Speedy has been performing under the guise Pedal Decay for 6 years, mostly playing at small venues and galleries in Victoria. Pedal Decay is a vehicle (For Him, His guitar, and His electronics) to explore shifting/juxtaposing tonalities and the slow degradation of cyclical sound in motion.
