Alissa Vox Raw
Often with no more than a loop pedal and her voice Alissa Vox RAW creates rich tapestries of sound from a multitude of organically built harmonic parts, interwoven together to create full music beds. Old styles of soul, doo-wop and blues with a contemporary twist are reinterpreted through new technologies. A variety of other instruments (i.e. electric kalimba, electric guitar, synth, and percussive instruments) are also sometimes used and expressed in new ways to create a unique sound that is both edgy and ethereal.
The Chameleon Project
As Toronto’s agents and instigators of the local live jam, fusion & electronica scene, The Chameleon Project (CP) have been the city’s host to, and shared the stage with, such acts as The New Deal, Lotus, Charlie Hunter, EOTO, Dub Trio, Garage Mahal, Biodiesel Bassnectar and countless others. CP has 2 full length album releases, 1 EP and a special DJ vinyl remix pressing to it’s credit and has appeared at premier North American festivals such as Camp Bisco (Mariaville, NY), Freedom Festival (Toronto, ON), Evolve (Antonish, NB), and the NuJazz Festival (Toronto, ON) to audiences numbering in the tens of thousands.
Armed with a bass-heavy material, daring improvisations and mind-bending tonal colors the Chameleon Project has crafted a unique sound over its 10yr history. Skillfully weaving elements of dub, jazz, disco, and psychedelia into an intoxicating brew, the Project has been regularly astounding audiences by taking listeners to sonic places, yet uncharted in the realms of dance music.
Currently the Chameleon Project is recording their 3rd full length LP due for release in 2014.
