Part Daft Punk-inflected Dan Deacon, part DIY-driven Flaming Lips as filtered through Girl Talk, Canada's Rich Aucoin is a force of beat-blasted rave-ups and synth-stricken jams. While last year's Public Publication EP hints at the function, Aucoin's real appeal rises in the form of his live shows which invariably explode into crowd-surfed extravaganzas." :: AUSTIN CHRONICLE
With a carnival spectacle of a live show, Halifax's symphonic-pop poster boy Rich Aucoin is a musical mastermind. Sing your swelling heart out, dance among a cloak of confetti, just don't stop the sonic alchemy. Aucoin's We’re All Dying To Live (Sonic Records), is a musical scrapbook compiling over 500 musicians, friends and fans from across Canada. Produced by Rich Aucoin and Joel Waddell, mixed by David Wrench (Caribou) and mastered by Nilesh Patel (Daft Punk, Justice), We’re All Dying To Live is a testament to the metamorphic magic of music.
