Looting is Andrew Bourcet, a Canadian producer, DJ and curator formerly known as Calmpound. Beginning music at 12 with singing, guitar, percussion as well as developing a deep interest in the collection and research of music and sound.
Fully embracing his love for experimental music, 90s jungle, early 2000s dubstep, ambient, avant-garde and electro-acoustic music by beginning the “Calmpound” project around 2006. Making a unique brand of experimental club and ambient music and releasing it with small Canadian labels.Andrew rebranded and debuted the Looting project with a performance at Shambhala music festival 2019 and released the album “Taqdim” in early 2020. Later that year, Andrew self released the “Restorative Properties EP” which saw Looting move into softer softer textures and romantic feelings. The record focuses heavily on live captured piano improvisations, field recordings and emotional electronics to “convey the juxtaposed emotions around falling in love in a pandemic”.
Andrew continues to work fervently on music and live projects in 2021, releasing the 9 track LP “Chest Pains” with Serbian label Kepasaparadoks, further cementing his experimental club sound and still finding ways to pay respect to his singer songwriter roots. To date the album has received rave reviews and support on NTS radio. Into the future the Looting project will move more fully into live environments utilizing electro-acoustic techniques and live improvisation to create immersive, emotional and evolving experimental dance music.
