THISQUIETARMY
Eric Quach to pionier kanadyjskiej sceny muzyki eksperymentalnej i jednocześnie jeden z najbardziej rozpoznawalnych artystów, tworzących w estetyce drone/ambient. Ale w jego improwizowanych setach słychać także echa noise’u, shoegaze’u, post-punka czy nawet doom metalu. Przy pomocy gitary i elektroniki artysta kreuje oniryczne, repetytywne struktury odwołujące się w równej mierze do muzycznego minimalizmu, jak i do gęstej industrialowej rytmiki. W ciągu ostatnich kilkunastu lat wydał blisko 50 płyt (m.in. w tak uznanych wytwórniach, jak Consouling Sounds, Denovali Records, Aurora Borealis czy Alien8 Recordings) oraz zagrał kilkaset koncertów na całym świecie.

THISQUIETARMY is the music project of Montreal-based artist Eric Quach, a pioneer of the Canadian experimental music scene. Revolving around improvised guitar drone and by combining textural & structural elements of ambient/noise, electronic/shoegaze, post-punk/krautrock, black/doom metal, thisquietarmy creates a wide range of dynamic soundscapes which oscillates between repetitive dreamy minimalism, multi-layered noise textures and electronic industrial beats.

Following up the critically acclaimed industrial black metal album, „Anthems for Catharsis” (Consouling Sounds, 2015), heavy drone opus „Métamorphose” (Grains of Sand, 2017), sci-fi synthwave revivalist „Democracy for Dust” (Midira Records, 2017), thisquietarmy follows with „The Body and The Earth”, a heavy full-band post-drone album on Consouling Sounds (October 2018).

Since 2005, thisquietarmy has put out close to 50 releases on more than 30 different labels such as Consouling Sounds, Denovali Records, Aurora Borealis, Alien8 Recordings, Shelter Press & three:four Records.

Black Emperor’s drummer Aidan Girt as a drum/guitar duo (Some Became Hollow Tubes) and with 16mm filmmaker Philippe Leonard as an A/V duo (Alchemic Rites) performing at film festivals such as Mono No Aware Cinema Arts festival (New York), Filmmaker Festival (Milan) & Analogica Festival (Bolzano).
