This is the Dream of Owen Pallett

Last month I had the pleasure of seeing my first full set by the guy who calls himself Final Fantasy. Actually one Owen Pallett from Toronto, in the live setting Final Fantasy is just a violin and a looping pedal. This simple musical formula, along with his excellent albums which feature more varied production, has created one of Canada's most recognized and acclaimed artists. Last year Pallett won Canada's inaugural Polaris Prize for his sophomore album, He Poos Clouds, and he has contributed string arrangements to the likes of Arcade Fire, Fucked Up and DFA1979.
