Laine Butler is a Vancouver designer working in sound, visual performance, and commercial art. Named as one of BeatRoute’s “6 New Forms Festival 2016 must-see acts”, Laine has toured the BC festival circuit VJing for numerous artists at Shambhala and at Bass Coast’s legendary Slay Bay stage.
Laine’s graphic design work can be seen as the album cover for Time Wheel’s records recording artist XY!O release of “PLANS”, on the second issue cover of Bandpass online magazine or in print at the Vancouver Art Book Fair. His motion design work can be seen promoting local underground electronic music shows for Chapel Sound Music and Art Collective of which he is a founding member. Laine intends to continue creating works of art that embolden and astound the synapses”
Butler’s art converges with Wiklow’s music on Diagram, their first audio-visual collaboration. Butler’s dynamic and chaotic structures are interwoven with Wiklow’s glitchy and textural soundtrack to create imaginary digital landscapes. Drawing influence from both physicality and digitalism, Diagram is an undiscovered space made up of ethereal motifs and hyperrealism.
