TOR (CANADA) + ZERO THEORY + MORE
Join us for an evening of immersive and engaging electronica, presented by Irukandji Collective.
TOR is a Vancouver-based music producer and DJ, who made his musical intentions clear in 2012 with his debut album - 'Drum Therapy'.
Known for his signature warmth and beat-driven atmospherics, Tor draws upon the deeper experiences and emotions that have informed his journey. Following a career that has seen him produce remixes for Clozee, Frameworks, Rüfüs Du Sol, Max Cooper, Odesza, Emancipator, Edamame & Fejka - TOR has found focus after slowing down and establishing roots, finding centre and introspection in a new living space.
His most recent album 'Oasis Sky' is a vibrant exploration of melody and rhythm, featuring bittersweet piano and warped keys, alongside sliding bass and clattering hi-hats. Parallel to these new expeditions in synthesis and sound design, sampling continues to play an important part in his process. Throughout the album, Tor has pulled from an eclectic palette: textures and snippets from Finnish folk hymns, spiritual jazz, prog rock, ‘60s Rwandan field recordings, and early ambient & experimental records. Since Oasis Sky’s release, it has gone on to accumulate over 15 million streams - earning the ultimate accolade of 'Electronic Album of the Year' at the prestigious Juno Awards in 2022.
This exclusive debut performance in Far North Queensland is not be missed...
