Lisa Butel and Brent Cross are sound artists living in Vancouver, BC. The couple create experimental music using live vocal looping, vocal sound manipulation, improvised and live sound synthesis and sample collage and prepared guitar. Their live performances are energized and directed by their love of improvisational aesthetics that they have absorbed and crafted over years of involvement in the Vancouver’s NOW Society’s Improvisational workshop series. Their music bends and drifts, rages and diminishes, layers and undulates and is original in each performance. Butel brings the analog world of live vocals front and centre to the music and delivers vocals from operatic to guttural and machine-like to demonic growls through complex and multiple loop cycles .
