Van Horne Sessions, or VHS for short, are live music videos produced in the Montreal Mile End's legendary NOMAD studios, and curated by Couteau Music House.  Van Horne is the original home base of such bands as Arcade Fire or Godspeed You! Black Emperor.  Consequently, NOMAD hosted such secret shows as Patrick Watson, Dear Criminals, or Barr Brothers to name very few.  Coupled with Couteau’s vast connections in Canada’s independent music scene, NOMAD’s award winning filmmaker and Moment Factory founder, Jason Rodi, lends a cinematic vision to every performance.
