Your father, he is dead
I see him in my head
Majical Cloudz is music band from Canada. Rooted in solo material written by Devon Welsh between rural Ontario and Montreal, he joined with Matthew Otto in February 2012 to collaboratively produce and perform. Their performance is deeply expressive — strong vocals sit on top of washes of white noise, filtered synths and sparse thuds. The songs are intensely lyrical, oriented around themes of death, patience, family, and desire. Their live show celebrates the joy in sadness and the value of a shared musical experience. (last.fm)
Emily kai Bock is a photographer and video director coming from Canada. She applied for film school and got through one semester as she was too busy with projects outside of school. Making those music videos was more of a priority for her, and so she had to choose between the two. She has already collaborated with big names of the music scene. Bock’s work has a dreamy, filmic quality, and a surrealistic style —the troubled figure skater in Grizzly Bear’s “Yet Again” or Doldrums’ Airick Woodhead pushing a shopping cart through the Mojave Desert in “She Is The Wave”. She also directed a video for Coca-Cola last year, while she has being nominated for the Prism Prize.
