Colin Stetson + Supports

Following his two sold out dates at Café Oto on the 27th and 28th of October of 2013, Koreema Music Group’s live sector KMG Live is proud to present 2011 and 2013 Polaris award nominee Colin Stetson.

Colin Stetson was born and raised in Ann Arbor, and spent a decade in San Francisco and Brooklyn honing his formidable talents as a horn player. He settled in Montreal in 2007.

To date Colin’s has released three albums in his New History Warfare album cycle described as: “pure revelation” according to All About Jazz and “a hugely impressive achievement… a sound that could only come from one person on earth,” according to Pitchfork, securing nominations for the Polaris Music Prize and landing on year-end lists at Pitchfork, Tiny Mix Tapes, SPIN and The Voice. Colin’s astounding physical engagement with his instruments (chiefly bass and alto saxophones) produces emotionally rich and polyphonic compositions that transcend expectations of what solo horn playing can sound like.

Stetson is equally at home in the avant jazz tradition of players who have pushed the boundaries of the instrument through circular breathing, embouchure, etc. (i.e. Evan Parker, Mats Gustafsson) and at the nexus of noise/drone/minimalist music that encompasses genres like dark metal, post-rock and contemporary electronics (i.e. Tim Hecker, Ben Frost – both of whom have mixed or remixed Stetson recordings).

Stetson has performed and recorded with dozens of artists, including Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, The National, TV on the Radio, LCD Soundsystem, Tom Waits, Feist, My Brightest Diamond, Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Jolie Holland, Sinéad O'Connor, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Angelique Kidjo, Kevin Devine, Beanie Burnett, and Anthony Braxton..
