Qunmuuyuq • Ascend • 2021




PIQSIQ (pronounced “pilk-silk”), comprised of sisters Tiffany Ayalik and Inuksuk Mackay, makes modern music based on traditional Inuit throat-singing. Their unique art is purely displayed on their latest album Live from Christ Church Cathedral, a haunting collection featuring a completely improvised six-song set. Recorded in October 2020 in an empty Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Vancouver, the setting allowed PIQSIQ’s enchanting melodies and guttural beats to echo through the old, gothic architecture, creating a deep sense of magic, time travel and futurism.
