thisquietarmy is the experimental guitar-based project of Eric Quach from Montreal, Quebec, Canada – active since 2005. Revolving around improvised drone music, he takes his sonic experimentations further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk, shoegaze, krautrock, post-rock, black metal and doom metal to them. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive and engaging dreamscapes. His live performances are mostly presented as a real-time score to hypnotic ethereal visuals, which he creates himself for each performance.

thisquietarmy has also collaborated extensively with Aidan Baker (Nadja), Monarch!, Scott Cortez (Lovesliescrushing) and Yellow6, and has several side-projects (Destroyalldreamers, Mains de Givre, Parallel Lines and Ghidrah). He sometimes perform under the moniker hi my quiet tsar for his synth-drone/noise project.

With already such a large body of work released and over 200 performances all over Canada, USA & Europe, thisquietarmy is a forward contender as a pioneer of the experimental music scene emerging from Canada.


AUN are a Montreal-based band that melt the boundaries between psychedelic, electronic, ambient, industrial and doomgaze music. AUN have performed at the Mutek, WGT, FIMAV, Swingfest festivals, and are now set to appear at the 2012 Roadburn. They have released numerous praised albums with such labels as Alien8 Recordings, Important, Cyclic Law and now with Denovali.
