Closing night of the festival with a burlesque performance by Miss Booty Jones, Elle Lixir and The Lady Corbeau, followed by a concert by Narcisse, ending with a set by Lazermortis
Lazermortis is an instrumental Synthwave producer based in Atlantic Canada. She fuses her experiences working in the funeral industry with her passion for retro-electronic music, exploring themes of organic death and artificial life through a melodic journey rooted in the past.
Her debut album Backseat Demons was released in 2020 and quickly gained attention, making heavy rotation on Spotify Synthwave playlists and gaining over 90 000 streams, most notably with her standout track Below the Sunrise. In 2021, Lazermortis challenged the imagination of her listeners with her MNB and GNB grant funded concept EP Autonetic Afterlife. Each song explores different concepts of how death and the afterlife might be perceived by artificial intelligence.
Miss Booty Jones
