Kaelen Ohm, under the name AMAARA, has released her debut single “Black Moon.” The track will be included in her upcoming EP, which will be available in early 2017. In addition to the digital release, the singer has released a music video to accompany the single. In regards to “Black Moon,” Ohm commented:
“The video’s imagery was with me when I wrote the song, so three years later it’s so rewarding to finally see Black Moon come to life. I grew up in a small town in the mountains in BC, so connection to nature and wildlife are an important part of my life and artistic process. The spiritual symbolism of the animals was a big theme in the video and we were so grateful for the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary and the Medicine River Wildlife Centre for their openness and willingness to have some of their animal residents as part of the project.”
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
