Nouvelle Sortie: Circuit 33.3 Migrations composées

J’aimerais vous partager l’annonce de la sortie du nouveau numéro de la Revue Circuit, musiques contemporaines, que j’ai eu l’immense plaisir de co-diriger avec Maxime McKinley:

L’angle de ce numéro de Circuit consiste à aborder, dans le monde d’aujourd’hui, les liens entre création musicale et migration, ceci avec la scène québécoise comme pivot d’arrivées (immigration) et de départs (émigration). L’approche consiste principalement à se mettre en position d’écoute de quelques personnes professionnellement actives et ayant un riche vécu à partager au regard d’un certain nomadisme et de sa répercussion sur leur créativité musicale. Ce dossier fait, ainsi, la part belle à la proximité du terrain et aux témoignages de première main. Celles et ceux qui ont quitté la scène québécoise la font rayonner ailleurs et génèrent de nouvelles découvertes et collaborations internationales. À l’inverse, les musicien·ne·s venu·e·s s’établir au Québec sont les vecteur·rice·s d’un enrichissement considérable pour cette scène, y multipliant les couleurs et les points de vue.

Cuchabata Records present: 60x44
June 19th, 2022
Montreal (Canada)

I am pleased to share this project in which I participated:

In September 2017, David Dugas Dion (Cuchabata Records) contacted around sixty musicians to invite them to take part in a gigantic compilation project on vinyl which he wanted to produce on his independent, non-profit label. Almost five years later (early 2022), the project is finally coming to fruition! Cuchabata Records will release 60x44 on June 19th during a BBQ organized by the Suoni Per Il Popolo festival. During the launch, several participants who have contributed their musical pieces to the compilation will take the stage by storm, in the form of "non-existent" quartets (until then), giving into free improvisation and other abstract music (or not). The musicians participating will have their names drawn a few days before the event, thus not knowing who they will play with. Cuchabata Records presents 60x44, a vinyl compilation of 60 44-second tracks, from 60 solo artists from Montreal and elsewhere.

AuXauralities at Hexagram-UQAM,
February 1-11, 2021, Montreal, Canada

AuXauralities projet is on residency at Hexagram-UQAM from February 1st to 11th, 2021. We will be working on our second sound installation: Le Cristal de l'Oreille.

AuXauralities project is a collaboration between artists and researchers in acoustics, where each brings its know-how in a perspective of hybridization of expertise to develop prototype works at the crossroads between arts and sciences. Members of the project: Ana Dall'Ara-Majek, Georges Roussel, Philippe-Aubert Gauthier, François Proulx, Nicolas Bernier and Julien Sylvestre. This project is made possible thanks to a grant from the FRQ's intersectoral AUDACE program and to the collaboration between the Groupe d'Acoustique de l'Université de Sherbrooke (GAUS) of the Université de Sherbrooke's Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Arts of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and Sporobole.

Anatomies Auditives at Sprobole BetaLab
December 3-19, Sherbrooke, Canada

I am pleased to present the first results of AuXauralities project with our installation: Anatomies Auditives.

Anatomies Auditives is a sound installation that addresses the notion of augmented listening by exploiting the very particular acoustic properties of meta-materials. Developed by 3D printing technology, the metamaterials reproduce digital synthesis processes by materializing them in the form of physical objects. Inspired by structures from the world of insects, these objects, halfway between artifact, animal form and architectural structure, sculpt a new sound environment within which listeners constitute a specific acoustic community.

Anatomies Auditives was presented at the Sporobole BetaLab (December 3-19, 2020) and a 3D version that can be visited by the public is currently under development.

AuXauralities project is a collaboration between artists and researchers in acoustics, where each brings its know-how in a perspective of hybridization of expertise to develop prototype works at the crossroads between arts and sciences.

AuXauralités at Sporobole, July 28th >> December 18th, 2020

I am very happy to be in residence at Sporobole Art Actuels for the participation to AuXauralités, a project mixing acoustic research and sound creation in which we use metamaterials to shape sound environments. AuXauralités is an intersectorial project with Georges Roussel, François Proulx, Philippe-Aubert Gauthier, Nicolas Bernier, Julien Sylvestre and supported by FRQ Audace program.

AuXauralités proposes a innovative state of perception: the augmented listening and the possibility for an individual to put himself in another's shoes, animal or fictional. Endowed with supernatural listening skills, one perceives the world from a different point of view that questions our relationship with environnement and architecture. This project creates links between acoustic research and sound art by exploring the properties of meta-materials in the context of a sound installation.
