Past Event

The second 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 July 23, August 22 September 2 and September 19.

Artists who performed on July 9th

Lydia Képinski

Lydia Képinski channels her expansive energy as a special child into music, learning classical piano and then guitar. Her stubbornness to always do the opposite of what she is told leads her to be noticed in several contests until the launch in 2016 of a soberly named EP and a dazzling victory at the Francouvertes. The following year, it's at the GAMIQ Gala that she distinguished herself by winning the "Revelation of the Year" and "EP of the Year" categories before giving up the ghost in 2018 on Premier Juin.


Hanorah grew up listening to the classic rock and soul sounds her parents loved. She developed an early passion for singers with raspy, powerful voices, such as Etta James, Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone (to whom she has been compared). In 2012, victim of a sexual assault, she plunges into a state of deep distress. It is by seeking psychological help and reading the testimonies of other survivors that she decides to rush headlong into creation.


Chivengi is a Montreal based experimental r&b singer/songwriter and sound designer. Chivengi brings the audience to a place of self-examination using ambient experimental sounds and r&b melodies, tracing an intimate and vulnerable universe.

Trinisha Browne

Born in Trinidad & Tobago and raised by her Grandparents, Trinisha grew up in a household of Reggae, Gospel, Hip-Hop, and 90’s R&B which had a heavy influence in her music direction and still flavours the essence of her recording today. Her love for music, visual art, and poetry led Browne to explore various artistic opportunities in the city of Montreal, and in 2016, Trinisha Browne released her first EP ‘Free-write’, which was featured on the website of VOIR Magazine.


Sonication is one of the key events of the DESTINATION: PHI programming, which includes many multidisciplinary initiatives (concerts, screenings, installations, etc.) offered in our physical and virtual creative spaces.
