V.Vecker (aka Keith Wecker, b. 1983) is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He has been a member of the Vancouver experimental scene since 2006 and has been touring North America since 2009. He releases his music through his imprint Vancouver Free Jass + Drone Society and was a founding member of the Emergency Room. V.Veckers’ work is inspired by the commonalities he found in free + spiritual jazz, electronic, noise and drone music. His music can resemble a melting pot of any of these genres at a given time. His current work is based around saxophone loops and synthesizers working with a heavy interest in producing atmospheric experiences. Leading with free and improvisational ideas counter balanced with an interest in more formal compositional methods and electronic musics lead to a cross section of genres resulting in music familiar yet original.
V.Vecker has participated in New Forms Festival, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Living Things Festival, and the Improvisation Summit Portland. He has shared the stage with Wolf Eyes, Sarah Davachi, Chris Corsano, Hauschka, Jessica Moss, Nadja, Sun Araw, Thundercat, Zs, Anthony Braxton, and Glenn Branca.
Ruth Davidson (Moraine) and Jonathan Sherman (Falling Up Stairs) will be performing a duet of spontaneous compositions for cello and drums.
Orgone Donor is Dustin Williams (Tarsier Eyes) Riley R (The Sheen), and Alex Wolf (Twin Sibling, Guillotine Eyes) who will be performing improvised electronic music with guitar pedals, synthesizers and tape machines.
