Khôra is an experimental music project of Toronto resident Matthew Ramolo aimed at blurring the lines that separate the organic and synthetic, improvisation and composition. The emphasis in Khôra’s music is distributed between interlocking melodies (nested arpeggios, broken fugal voices, etc.) performed on acoustic and electronic instruments and experimentation involving field recordings and analogue/digital processing. From moving sparseness to fervent density, the music summons the spirit of Eastern modes, contemporary classical, avant and sacred minimalism, experimental rock, and various forms of electronic music. Poly-voiced, modular synthesis exploring the inner and outermost dimensions of sonic possibility has become the centrepiece of Khôra’s recent live performances.
