Flying Hórses is the project of Jade Bergeron. Tölt was recorded mostly in Iceland and is filled with the sounds of piano, wurlitzer, celesta, glockenspiel, bells, chimes, music boxes and cello. Elegiac and transportive, she describes her debut as “a journey through memories.” She was invited to play Iceland Airwaves Music Festival in 2015 as well as the world-renowned Festival International de Jazz de Montreal in 2016. The Banff Centre for Performance Arts welcomed Flying Hórses in the fall of 2016, to work and collaborate with Juno award-winner Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think). In the spring of 2017, she released Sorg Sea; a movement, mixed by Efrim Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), it premiered on CBC’s ‘The Strombo Show’. She is currently working on her sophomore record.
Flying Hórses’ debut album, Tölt was recorded with Sigur Rós’ producer, Biggi Birgisson, at Sundlaugin Studio in Iceland. Shortly after the release of Tölt she joined the 1631 Recordings (DECCA) roster alongside Oscar-nominated composers Dustin O’Halloran, Hauchka and Max Richter. The Montreal composer and musician recently paired up with award-winning Director Alexandre Richard from Quebec production house Cinearcale, to release a captivating filmic video that explores the bliss and trauma of childhood. It premiered on The FADER, and won ‘Best Director’ at the Paris International Music Video Competition 2017.
