Zero Point
Mainly coming from the jazz world, Zero Point's music is entirely improvised, sometimes giving the impression of a known melody or a sound mass, similar to what the spectral music can evoke. Or just like Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler and Eric Dolphy the musicians of this band can also be deeply anchored in the tradition of blues and bebop, which resurfaces in a pictorial way.
Their first album "Thoughts Become Matter" released in March 2017 was celebrated with a ten days tour across Europe and described by the New York City Jazz Records as "a dozen encounters beyond the ordinary" and "a refined brand of freedom which tastes like some contemplative medicine here to help soothe our souls" by the Downtown Music Gallery.
Daniel Carter – winds, piano
Michael Bates – bass
Deric Dickens – drums
Marius Duboule – guitar

Alexei Michailowsky a.k.a. Dr. Alex is a Brazilian synth-wiz and producer, and also a real PhD in Music (hence the "Dr"!) and a radio personality at CHUO 89.1!
After the grand premiere of the Synthetic Bliss project, he will be back to the Avant-Garde for one more night of Brazilian boogie grooves with a mix of classic tracks from the 80s as well as original music!
Dr. Alex will take you to a musical trip on the heart of Rio de Janeiro, where a touch of summer meets the Ottawa winter!

Paragon Cause
A musical production duo consisting of the vocals and piano/synth by Michelle along with the guitar and production by Jay.
With roots in Hip hop and classical music, Paragon mixes their live performance with production to create their own unique soundscape.
They often perform their music live using retro drum machines, syths and electric guitars. All sounds are produced and recorded live.
The Bright Road
The origins of pop-rock outfit The Bright Road date back to around 2010, when singer-songwriter Philippe Garceau started collaborating with musicians in Montréal, Québec. From those collaborations arose 2012’s Norway, an atmospheric album whose tranquil songs create space for reflection, peace, and solitude. David Brisson and Keven Juneau joined The Bright Road a few months after Norway was released, and the band attacked touring and songwriting with a new collaborative focus. After two years of writing songs together and being immersed in Montréal culture, Ocean was born. A symbol that accommodates all walks of life, the ocean is broad enough to welcome multiple stories and interpretations; even a new member: Léa Boudreau. For the band, it’s important for all listeners to let their own stories guide interpretations of Ocean. Garceau, Brisson, Juneau and Boudreau call music a "universal language" that communicates and brings people together in ways that words cannot.
Lizzy writes records and produces feel-good pop songs with emotional hooks, raw feels, guitars and synthesizers out of her Montreal home.
With Special Guest Mike James!
Mike James is a singer/songwriter from Ottawa. Jazzy folk tunes abound.
