Since he first picked up a violin when other kids were learning to speak, music has encompassed Owen Pallett's life. He has famously worked with bands as far across the musical spectrum as Arcade Fire and Linkin Park, and has become known for an experimental sound that blends classical with indie pop and art rock. He has enjoyed critical success both as a film composer and a solo artist, winning an Academy Award (for his work scoring Her with Arcade Fire) and the Polaris Music Prize (for his 2006 album, He Poos Clouds). On his fourth full-length, the acclaimed In Conflict, released in May, the 35-year-old showcases a different type of baroque pop, demonstrating his prowess as not only a technically sound musician but also an artist always willing to push the limits of his sound.
