“To see Pallett live is to be equally dazzled and mowed over — looping violin lines in real time, singing and playing and stomping pedals and band leading and dryly joking, all at once.” – Pitchfork

“Pallett’s live shows have always been his showpiece” – The Line of Best Fit

Owen Pallett is a composer, violinist, keyboardist, and vocalist. His violin-looping live project spawned several records under the moniker Final Fantasy, including 2006’s He Poos Clouds, which won the Polaris Prize. He currently makes universally acclaimed records under his own name, including 2010’s Heartland, and most recently, 2014’s In Conflict (released by Secret City Records and Domino Recording Co.)

Pallett has written string, brass and orchestral arrangements for numerous bands, including Caribou, The National, Taylor Swift, R.E.M., Pet Shop Boys, Franz Ferdinand, Duran Duran, Robbie Williams, The Last Shadow Puppets, The Mountain Goats, Beirut, Grizzly Bear, Linkin Park, Snow Patrol, Titus Andronicus, and Arcade Fire. He has scored several films, including Richard Kelly’s The Box, with Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, and The New York Times Magazine‘s Emmy Award-winning Fourteen Actors Acting. Owen recently completed the film scores for Anton Corbjin’s Life and M Blash’s The Wait, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on the original score of Spike Jonze’s latest film, Her.

Pallett’s violin concerto written for Pekka Kuusisto, co-commissioned by the Barbican and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, was performed as part of the 2013 New Creations Festival. He has also composed works for the CBC Radio, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Luminato Festival, and the Kaufman Center as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival. Owen recently collaborated with choreographer Robert Binet, on the ballet Unearth, which premiered as part of Innovation presented by The National Ballet of Canada at the Four Seasons Centre, Toronto. As a soloist, he has performed with the Brooklyn Philharmonic, Symphony Nova Scotia, the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Noord Nederlands Orkest, yMusic and the Britten Sinfonia. He was a member of the original ensemble enlisted to perform David Lang’s death speaks at Carnegie Hall.

Owen is, at most times, joined on stage by drummer Robbie Gordon and bassist Matt Smith.

ECHO ARTIST TALKS: GORD BOND
Thursday, February 23 • Mills Hardware (95 King St. E., Hamilton)
Doors 7pm, Talk 7:30pm • Free

The Echo Artist Talks series continues on Thursday February 23, when the Hamilton Arts Council’s Visual Arts Committee welcomes Hamilton-based painter Gord Bond to Mills Hardware. Bond recently presented his solo exhibition of new paintings, Almost Human Nature, his recent exhibition at Dundas’ Carnegie Gallery. 

Gord Bond was born in Hamilton, Ontario, where he still lives and exhibits his paintings today. While doing an undergraduate in Science at McMaster University, Bond’s love of drawing and painting compelled him to switch majors to the Fine Arts. Bond received an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree at McMaster University in 2012. Upon completion of his Undergraduate Degree, Gord immediately applied and gained acceptance to York University to work towards his Masters in Fine Art. Since completing his Masters in 2014, Bond has continued to create paintings focusing on his interest in the human figure coupled with an urge to experiment with form, colour and mark-making.

Echo Artist Talks is a project of the Hamilton Arts Council Visual Arts Committee that provides a forum for both local and visiting artists exhibiting in Hamilton galleries to share their experiences with the local community. Hosted monthly at Mills Hardware in downtown Hamilton, each talk includes a Q&A session and opportunity for informal networking before and after the talk with a cash bar available on site. Doors open at 7:00 in advance of the start of the artist’s talk at 7:30.
