How to translate sound into movement, the subtle integration of queer empowerment themes and the inspirations, joys and down-to-earth challenges of making three music videos are just some of the questions (and answers) explored in this new roundtable discussion video. The talk features FOXTROTT (a.k.a. Montreal musician Marie-Hélène L. Delorme) and two of her music video collaborators: director Kevin Calero and choreographer Wynn Holmes, who created the dances within the trilogy.

The trio’s warm, creative synergy is also at the forefront, as they gracefully move between topics and appear to inspire each other’s insights. Produced and presented by Phi and directed and moderated by Paul Labonté, the conversation offers an intimate opportunity to learn about the process behind their trilogy of music videos for the songs Driven, Shaky Hands and Shields, all from FOXTROTT’s Polaris Prize-nominated album A Taller Us (One Little Indian).

A new deluxe digital reissue of FOXTROTT’s A Taller Us includes remixes by Bok Bok, Catching Flies, and Montreal’s own Lunice.

A Taller Us is a record that talks about my discovery of self,” says Delorme in the roundtable conversation. “It was a mix of anxieties, doubts, and a sense of liberation, distancing myself from ancestors, of struggles. It’s just a really deep dive in the discovery of self that, I guess, a lot of people live through.”
