Bother! I missed checking Eric Quach out when he played Halifax last night. That’s what you get for not checking The Coast as soon as it comes out. Although, it does mention that he has specially created a soundtrack for Yassine Ouhilal’s art opening at Argyle Fine Art today (Friday 12th March 2010).
Oh well, YouTube to the rescue. Here is an excerpt of a performance from April 11th 2008 in the attic of the Trepid House (http://www.trepid.org) in Waterloo (Ontario) .
I’ve also managed to write a little Java application, using NetBeans IDE, which allows me to look up similar artists on last.fm without going to the website. I have restricted it to the fist 10 similar artists at the moment. Here is what I get for thisquietarmy.
So, the top ten Similar Artists to thisquitearmy, according to Last.fm data, are:

The most recent album from NoTwist is the soundtrack to the Hans-Christian Schmid motion picture ‘Sturm’. Released September 2009 the album consists of hypnotic ambient pieces which just seem to hang unsuspended in space.
Slow electronic swells and piano loops combine with xylophone, glockenspiel, accordion and violin to produce a truly hypnotic experience.
