Martine H. Crispo is an audio and new media artist, as well as a sound designer for the performing arts. Her practice is centered on performances, radio art and installations. She uses self-made DIY frequency generators and electronic circuits bent from educational children’s toys. For the past several years, she has focused on exploring the interplay of sound and light through the use of devices that employ the techniques of graphical sound and optical sound. Her recent work Zoé T. : spectres et autres apparitions has been presented recently at PAVED Arts in Saskatoon and Tourner de l’oeil at QUEBEC DIGITAL ART in New York and Espace IMMEDIA at Sporobole.
She has also been active for over two decades in creating live radio performances with the biweekly show, Chaud Pour Le Mont-Stone. She collaborates regularly with local artists throughout Quebec. Most recently, she worked with Marcelle Hudon on her creation Le pavillon des immortels heureux presented at the gallery OBORO in Montreal, as well as with Carole Nadeau on Le project Quartett de H. Muller, a live video installation presented at the Fonderie Darling. She designed and performed the music and sound for Le Mobile, presented in Quebec, Montreal, Mexico and Ecuador.
