Agencies is the electronic/ambient music project of Piero Frenguelli, from Toronto. Agencies makes music with synthesizers, drum machines, loops & field recordings. Initially performing and producing as F/Point and later Control, he independently released collections of work focused on techno, noise, and experimental sound design between 1998 and 2007. 2008 was the year that marked the beginning of a long-lasting collaboration with fellow musician Marco Porsia. “Let There Be Light” was born from a common love for music-for-films, shoegazing, esoteric gear, and the desire to incorporate a wider palette of sounds in the music and explore compelling visuals for live shows. Between 2011 and 2014 Let There Be Light evolved into the music collective “The Radio Fields”; a time of great energy where boundaries were pushed further into psych/noise territory. In 2015 the solo electronic/ambient music project “Agencies” was conceived with the intent of reconnecting to the early electronic work, and aimed at traversing the abstract notion of sounds, noise textures and drone. Agencies has just released the full-length album titled “The Number Stations”, scheduled for its live debut on October 16th as part of the Ambient Ping series of concerts. https://agencies.bandcamp.com/album/the-number-stations .. 9:30 . Shimmer Crush . Described by i die: you die as music that incorporates 'cicada-like clicks trickling through soupy pads' with 'discordant breaks and pinched waveforms', Shimmer Crush merges influences of IDM, minimal techno, soundtracks, industrial, post rock, ambient and experimental electronics to create thoughtful sound. Simple, raw, experimental electronic compositions accented by haunting vocalizations and spoken word form a dream-like narrative of life and experiences to define her sound. 'Emotive and translucent, solemn and surreal......minute glitch tentacles sway back and forth in an enigmatic haze.'
