“Big sound under bigger skies Help me Obiwan: The Absent Sound produce a visual cacophony. Winnipeg's The Absent Sound want to air out New York City. Maybe it's simply the setting - a stone's throw from the lush sprawl of pristine wilderness that extends in all directions for what seems like an eternity. Or perhaps it's all a matter of perception, an underdog mentality, borne of exclusion from the media-machine hype reserved for the big three music scenes: Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. Whatever the reason, musicians from Winnipeg tend to think big, and few think much bigger than The Absent Sound, a band whose epic sonic improvisational splendour is matched only by ambition. In July, The Absent Sound plan on moving to New York to "try and influence as many people as possible." But at the centre of it all is the music, and "big" is too small a word to describe it. ”
