Avery Strok

Avery Strok

Avery Strok's music is the sound of the universe. His first four releases run the gamut between hypnotic ambient drones, Musique Concrète, minimalist dub, and restrained noise.

Though Avery had played in Toronto's underground music scene in the early 90's, it took a few more years for his experimental sound to finally come to the fore. Fuelled by his love of both harsh industrial noise and ambient soundscapes, he unleashed 'The Fair God', in 2000. Three meticulous full length forays into the unknown were borne in the following few years, 'Ting Tang and Poon Yang', 'Seeds of Sorrow' and 'The Deafening Silence'.

Then in 2008, Avery and his childhood friend, Richard Vainio started a band, The Deadly Organs. Under that name, they released one track, "Do You Think If I Spanked You, You'd Be Good?", along with a video. This has since been described as Power Electronics. Shortly after, the project changed names (but not sound), and became Lorde Awesome. Avery and Richard have been the nucleus of Lorde Awesome since 2008 and continue to be.

Some of his most recent works, along with selections from his third and fourth releases will be featured in the forthcoming full length feature film, 'Nuclear Hope', by director Colin Scheyen.
