    Suuns

    From the beginning, Suuns (pronounced “soons”, and translates as “zeroes” in Thai) have sought to do things differently. They formed in Montreal 2007, when singer/guitarist Ben Shemie and guitarist Joe Yarmush got together to work on some demos, soon to be joined by Liam, Ben’s old schoolfriend, on drums and Max Henry on synth. Their first two records, 2010’s Zeroes QC and 2012’s Polaris Prize-nominated Images Du Futur–both released on Secretly Canadian –were immediate critical hits, and Suuns soon found themselves part of a late ‘00s musical renaissance in the city, alongside fellow groups like The Besnard Lakes, Islands and Land Of Talk. Still, at the same time, Suuns feel remote from the big, baroque ensembles and apocalyptic orchestras that typify the Montreal scene. “We write quite minimal music,” thinks Ben. “They’re not traditional song forms, sometimes they don’t really go anywhere –but they have their own kind of logic.” Or as Joe puts it: “It’s pop music, but sitting in this evil space.”

    The Pack AD

    Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals—this is the Pack A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic and empowering, that it’s easy to forget it's just two people behind this brilliant and carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, the Pack A.D. swallows you whole inside their blend of heavy psych-pop/garage-rock. Their lyrics are entirely human and complex, tackling real issues with darkly humor or raving about sly crusades against stupidity. Becky and Maya are relentless and riveting, playing with the kind of freedom that makes everybody in the room vicarious rock stars, even if it’s just for the night.

    Duchess Says

    Duchess Says was created in late 2003 when four members of the Church of Budgerigars decided to collaborate together on a common musical project to promote a new kind of church and spread the message of the Duchess (or spiritual budgie). This Montreal band presents audiophiles with a collection of intense "moog rock" songs that pull influence from new wave and punk with artistic cues coming from cinema and visual arts. Duchess Says has the mandate to decontextualise the rock and to promote simultaneously their Church on the way.

What is MoSo?

MoSo is a combined event that is part conference and part music festival. It's based on the idea that like-minded people will come together and add their ripple to create a bigger wave.  This year, MoSo is taking things a step further by going well beyond our roots of technical and social media ideas.  Sure, we’re still about social media marketing and digital development, but we’re also diving into the deep end with graphic designers, writers, musicians, software developers, artists...anyone that considers themselves creative.  

 

MoSo is  a convergence of creativity.  Share, collaborate, and cultivate your ideas into something truly amazing.
