Horror Inc. Société Des Arts Technologiques, Montreal QC June 5
Horror Inc. is the pseudonym of Montreal-based musician Marc Leclair, primarily known as Akufen and for his cut'n'paste-heavy hybrid of minimal techno and experimental house. Horror Inc., a project that has been a decade in the works, is less about micro-sampling and much smoother than the work under his more famous moniker. Based on the name, you could expect a tension-filled sound full of scary string samples and horror movie sound effects, akin to something like Goblin, but as it turns out that the name is somewhat misleading. With solid house beats, tasteful saxophone samples and a smooth, cinematic yet upbeat feel, Leclair started the evening right.
