Absolutely Free is a trio based in Toronto. The group formulates musical experiments based on instrumentation, compositional structure and other formal qualities ubiquitous to popular rock music. Following years of touring and releasing albums with defunct art punk band DD/MM/YYYY, the members of Absolutely Free set out to create a more hypnotic, patient music that integrates analog electronics, African polyrhythms, psychedelia, Bollywood and Krautroc.
Absolutely Free perform at FORMS Festival as part of VS.VS. (FORMS1, opening night Wed Sept. 28 at The Great Hall). This is a special set of live collaborations by local musicians experimenting against each other in real time from two concurrently running stages.
