About Chapel Sound

Today, Chapel’s members span the country from Vancouver to Montreal, with a mandate to push creative expression forward without boundaries or prejudice. The collective has hosted electronic music shows at venues like Fortune Sound Club, MIA and the Biltmore, as well as DIY events in underground venues including The Loft, Vancouver Art and Leisure and Red Gate Arts Society.
