Electronic music producer based in Mistissini, QC. Hostibus. What does it mean? It is the plural form of the Latin word 'hostis', for 'enemy'. When it came down to a choice between 'hostis' and 'hostibus' I preferred the sound of the plural form and selected it instead of the singular. But why? I'm asking you to consider the cultural practice of 'othering' - singling out individuals or minority groups and maligning or discriminating against them. Will you accept or even happily coexist with those individuals or groups that you have been told are the 'other'? Do you have the moral fortitude, if you are a part of the religious majority in the world today, to practice the convictions that you are (or should be) taught? This is the question I hope to pose with the selection of my artist name.
