Janine Ramlochan is a Canadian video installation artist. Her artistic process is similar to painting with video — applying layers, playing with texture and abstraction to create rhythm. Her work has been shown in film festival screenings, alternative venues, gallery exhibitions, conferences/ symposiums and cultural events. She was commissioned by the City of Mississauga to mount an installation for the 2015 Pan Am/ ParaPan Am Games as part of a 22-day city-wide art intervention. Other exhibitions include the 2014 Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival (Port of Spain), The Carnival Project (New York), Sarai 09: Projections (New Delhi), and The Living Arts Centre Gallery (Mississauga). She recently sat on juries for the Ontario Arts Council (Media Arts) and the 2017 Toronto Arthouse Film Festival.
Miss O is a Belgian-Italian music duo consisting of Italian singer and songwriter, Odette de Maio, and Jan de Block, a Belgian composer and producer. Odette’s lyrics are about spirituality, dreams and connection to other worlds, combined with Jan’s delicate sounds — often just the simplicity of piano.
Odette and Jan began writing music together as Miss O in 2009 and released their first album, “Infection,” in 2012. A music video from their first album made it to the finale of the OZU Italian Film Festival (2012) reinterpreting the original “Alice in Wonderland” film. Miss O’s “Visions” (2014) digital EP included 2 songs co-written with Italian composer Gualtiero Cesarini, and was particularly well-received in Italy. Their single “Night Ride” (2015) was featured in the internationally award-winning Franco-Belgian film, ‘46,XX.’
