Soundstreams shows have a unique ability to have both feet firmly in the here and now, while still honouring the musical past of Canada and the world. With this year’s focus on shows exploring ritual and memory, this ethos has never been more true.
DJ SlowPitchSound, well known to our audiences, had this to say about Electric Messiah, and what concerts like it mean to him:
Electric Messiah is all about taking something old and making it new through re-imagining songs, stories and sounds from the past into something fresh and exciting, while keeping hints for reference. It’s the closest thing I can think of to actual time traveling, a great way to bring diverse generations of music lovers together and refreshing to perform as a musician.
