Past Event

The third edition of a series of rooftop concerts at the PHI Centre

Free Admission

PHI Centre
315, Saint-Paul Ouest
Montréal (Québec) H2Y 2M3

Sonication is a hybrid experience, halfway between a film set and a festive happening. While the performances played on the roof are retranscribed on screens throughout the PHI Centre, aesthetes and music lovers are invited to take part in a mosaic of animations within the building. A programme rich in artistic promise, between discovery, playful indulgence and relaxation.

The next performances will take place on August 22th, September 2nd and 19th.

*To live or relive these performances, follow our 12-episode Sonication web series, through 30-45 minute broadcasts every Wednesday, from July 22 to October 7.

Artists who performed on July 24th


Jesse Mac Cormack

Not everything appears instantly. Jesse Mac Cormack‘s astonishing debut album arrives unhurried: a work of ardent, kaleidoscopic art-rock that is at once a dazzling premiere and the culmination of a meticulous five-year evolution. Over the course of three EPs – 2014’s Music for the Soul, 2015’s Crush and 2016’s After the Glow – the Montreal native has gathered accolades and refined his vision, nourishing a songwriting that is lavish and undaunted.


Stanley Rimsky Salgado, aka Imposs, is a Montreal singer-songwriter of Haitian descent. The Quebec Hip Hop scene pioneer is recognized as one of the founding fathers of rap Made In Quebec, with experts agreeing on the magnitude of his influence on the scene, both as a solo artist and as a member of Muzion, with his sister J Kyll and rhyme partner Dramatik.

Kamino (NBS)

Gerry Vincent (Kamino), born in Florida, West Palm Beach, spent his childhood writing songs and learning a few of instruments (mainly guitar and piano) which focused his dreams into the music industry. Soon enough, he found himself immersed in the depths of the rap culture and was enchanted by it. He began rapping at the age of 16 and started releasing his music at the age of 17 when he first arrived at NBS music studio (No Bad Sound).

XLoww (NBS)

XLoww is a music producer and singer/songwriter based out of Montreal. Music spoke naturally to her as she began to teach herself how to play guitar, piano and program music. Her voice and unique ear for melodies create a lush intimate experience that is deeply captivating and heart felt. Her self-produced music productions range from heavy-hitting, melancholic trap to minimalist, distorted guitar riffs. These soundscapes compliment and contrast her soft whisper-like words of heartbreak and sadness.
