Silence is dedicated to presenting sounds and musical practices that are diverse, challenging, sustainable and accessible through concerts, workshops and improvisation sessions. Silence serves as an incubator for practitioners and listeners alike.

Silence is unbiased in regard to genre, culture, class, and tradition; we foster risk-taking, innovation and experimentation in all forms of music and sound, as well as other artistic expressions presented in the space.

Guelph’s own Hymns57 is a soundscape venture project. Working with field recordings and samples. Manipulating live tape loops all while using guitar and a multitude of effects to create lush, blissed out sonic tapestry. Beginning with a single loop and building on top, each layer weaves a new dynamic and aural tether to these soundscapes. Formulated to immerse you, under a blanket of sound that leads your ears astray


Poly Trap Super Six

Poly Trap Super Six is a collective of psychedelic musicians, video artists, and visual artists from Toronto, Canada. An exploratory concoction of ambient psychedelia, often times weaving itself into improv territory and reaching the outer limits of cosmic soundscapes before returning back to it’s roots and nestling you into the warmth of their enormous palette.



The Odessa

The Odessa is a duo comprised of Erik Culp (Ambisonic, Mind Of A Squid, Hollowphonic, The Atomic Cosmonaut) and Brandon Munro (The Basement Revolver, The Burning Hell, Nick Ferrio, Ptarmigan, Candle Cave Ensemble, Tin Vespers and various jazz configurations) Together the duo of the Odessa create cinematic post-rock passages that include exhilarating combination of written and improvised music.
