Commanding Canada’s Dark, New Wave

After studying classical violin in her youth, Marie Davidson became so enamored with analog electronic music that she dropped out of school to pursue it. Formerly a member of several Montréal-based bands, Davidson's singular solo work has since appeared on a variety of indie labels, including the critically acclaimed Minimal Wave imprint, Austin, TX's Holodeck Records and DFA Records as a member of Essaie Pas. Armed with an arsenal of synthesizers, drum machines, sequencers, portable recorders and pedals, Davidson now blurs the lines between techno, Italo disco, synth pop, house and more. At SonarDôme this year, Marie Davidson will present her Bullshit Threshold project, a self-described “unique and disturbing show in ten acts.” The show blends theatrical performance, video projections and dark humor with Davidson’s singular style of electronic music.
