Chapel Sound celebrates four years of community-driven creativity

chapelsoundVANCOUVER — Celebrating years of live streaming on the Internet, music production workshops, artist collaborations and the infamous Chapel house parties, Chapel Sound is officially turning four years old.

A Vancouver-based artist collective, Chapel Sound is home to a variety of creative types including producers, rappers, DJs, visual and interactive artists who support one another in the creation of their art. “My initial motivation was to build a venue that showcases the dope artists that no one else wants to showcase because they’re too ‘difficult’ or ‘uncomfortable,’” explains Sean Oh, the founder or “collage artist” of Chapel, as he prefers to reference to himself. “I feel like we have created this little wild backyard; chaotic, full of potential and sexy.”

Fresh on the heels of the collective’s first ever multi-day Chapel Sound Festival earlier this year, the team is all about giving back to their community by releasing a special four-year anniversary mixtape in advance of their big party set to go down at VAL at the end of September. Featuring plenty of demos and unreleased gold from the Chapel family, the mix epitomizes the raw talent brewing at Chapel.

Looking towards the future of the Vancouver artist collective, Oh just wants the best for his pseudo family. “My wish as a friend of the chapel family is for them to establish their strength on whatever they are passionate about and never forget or lose it,” he shares. “I want them to be more internationally well known as a ‘Vancouver-based artist’ so when people hear that they’re from Vancouver they say, ‘Oh shiiiii!’“

The Chapel Sound four-year anniversary party will be happening at VAL 1965 Main Street September 30th.
