About the Artist(s)

Chinese-Canadian saxophonist, synthesist, composer, and graphic designer GORDY LI is mercurial, relentlessly unmatchable, and has been turning heads with an artistic voice that is as unhinged as it is refreshingly sensitive.  His unfiltered musicianship reflects elements of diasporan identity and Black American music, tempered by an astute awareness of his sonic surroundings in many online subcultures and in so-called Richmond and Vancouver where he is currently based.
