moon:and:6

Canadian multi-instrumentalist, music producer, engineer and remixer Michael Chambers (aka moon:and:6) launched his production career in the late 1990s, assisting on sessions for the The Philosopher Kings and the Juno Award-winning Willie P. Bennett tribute album, Heartstrings.

As a founding member of Canadian pop/rock band The Golden Dogs, Chambers recorded and produced the band’s debut album Everything In 3 Parts. Working under the mentorship of the late Dan Achen (Junkhouse), Chambers soon became a regular fixture at Achen’s Catherine North Studios, recording and mixing artists such as Said The Whale, Rose Cousins, Morgan Cameron Ross, The Coppertone, Nick Urb and The Rest. Working under the name moon:and:6, Chambers recorded and mixed Whitehorse’s self-titled debut in 2011, followed by their 2013 Polaris Prize shortlisted album The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss.

Chambers’ own solo work is infused with French downtempo, post-rock and the experimental nature of mad men like Brian Eno and Steve Reich. “Launch Sequence A” demonstrates Chambers’ ability to make a 1990s electronica vibe sound current while evoking images of vintage space exploration. It’s an idea that’s stretched and re-stated several times in A Brief History of American Space Travel, an immersive musical chronology that gets richer with each listen, due in large part to Chambers’ meticulous production work.
