Welcome to the latest episode of "If It Be Your Will" podcast with today’s special guest, experimental artist Kee Avil! In this episode, we dive deep into the intricate world of music improvisation and the creative processes with experimental music. Montréal producer and guitarist Vicky Mettler is Kee Avil, sharing her captivating journey into improvisational music, with emphasis on its spontaneous and collaborative nature. The discussion expands to encompass Vicky's music production process, her new musical setup, and the visual aesthetics intertwined with her music and videos. They also dissect the creative evolution behind Vicky's albums, from individual songs to layered compositions, and her upcoming plans for shows and new music...

Kee Avil’s music is both adventurous and intimate, intellectually challenging and emotionally resonant. The Montréal guitarist and producer’s 2022 debut LP Crease garnered plaudits from outlets like The Wire, The Quietus, Mojo and Foxy Digitalis, picking up a Canadian Juno Award nomination and Bandcamp Album Of The Day and Albums Of The Year along the way. Its intricate construction, unnerving atmospheres, and knife-edge take on avant-pop prompted comparisons to early PJ Harvey, This Heat, and Gazelle Twin. A remix EP with work by claire rousay, Ami Dang, Cecile Believe, and Pelada brought collaborative perspectives to four Crease tracks, offering new pathways within those songs.
