Pink Floyd meets GY!BE = Absent Sound
Absent Sound, are powerfully eclectic & engaging musicians. The experimental rock band explores neo-krautrock,
record skip dub and heavy psychedelic post-rock.
The band are best experienced live where they wield a musical arsenal, creating huge dramatic worlds of sound
with colossal guitars, hypnotic, off-kilter record scratch beats, tape loops, synths & organ drones.
They have shared the stage with Lee Ranaldo, Damo Suzuki, The Besnard Lakes, Do Make Say Think, Feist, Braids,
Fly Pan Am, Mono, Growing, Tania Tagaq, DD//MM//YYYY, Fucked Up.
Absent Sound have created the very successful bi-annual sonic, multi-media, costumed event, ElementSircus, Winnipeg Psych Fest, and the annual
20 Guitar Circular Wall Of Angelic Sound which have drawn hundreds of very loyal crowds over the years.
