Gabriel Saloman / GMS / Sade Sade

Gabriel Saloman (GMS, Sade Sade) composes music for live performance and recordings for dance, video, film, and sound installation. His music investigates temporal abstractions, conceptual sound and gestural noise. There is a parallel concern with sound art as both liberating practice and praxis.

In recent performances and recordings Saloman’s music has been composed of percussion, tapes, mixer-feedback, guitar, keyboards, piano and voice. In particular Saloman has explored the use of found sound, field recordings, percussion and processed blank cassettes.

His sound work furthers investigations into Saloman’s concepts of art, sound and the politics of the social by focusing specifically on its function of both collective and autonomous resistance and emancipation while simultaneously contextualizing his practice in the contemporary radical milieu.

Saloman was a member of Yellow Swans and currently creates music in Diadem with Aja Rose; Chambers with MRed; and The Volunteer Ecstatic Orchestra with a number Vancouver based experimental musicians. He has previously collaborated with groups such as Bleeder; Boxleitner; Cexfucx; Yesod with Aja Rose Bond and Tusk.
