For over 20 years, I have been a sound artist and composer for multidisciplinary productions. Based in Montréal, my focus as an audio artist is in live sound performances. For the past few years, I have been developing alternative methods of generating sound by modifying the electronic circuits of old educational children’s toys and by building my own frequency generators. My work also encompasses motors, electro- magnets and optics. My solo work has been presented in galleries and festivals in Canada, the United States and Europe, notably at the Centre for Contemporary Arts of Glasgow, Scotland at the International Performance Arts in Odense, Denmark, the Festival d’Avignon in France, the 2006 Bent Festival in New York, MUTEK in Montreal, the Suoni Per II Popolo Festival, Jeudis tout ouïe at Galerie B-312 and Mois
I have also been active for over two decades in creating live radio performances. My shows were broadcast on CIBL-FM in the early ’80s, and currently, since 1991, on CKUT-FM with the biweekly show, Chaud Pour Le Mont-Stone. These radio performances function as a true sound laboratory where everything happens live. It is pure live radio – nothing hidden, anything goes, everything is played and broadcast live – through improvisation with both analog and digital machines, physical objects and radio microphones.
I collaborate regularly with numerous local artists throughout Quebec. Most recently, I worked with Carole Nadeau on her most recent creation, Le project Quartett de H. Muller, a live video installation presented at the Fonderie Darling in May 2011. I also designed and performed the music and sound for Le Mobile, presented at the Mois Multi 11 in Quebec and the Espace Libre in Montreal; Le Mobile will tour in Mexcio and Equator in Spring 2012. In collaboration with the musician Bernard Falaise, I composed and performed the music for Marcelle Hudon’s show, Poursuite, presented in Germany, France and Montreal. Over the past year, I also collaborated with Les Filles Électriques to present Le miracle de Brahmine, La mariée perpétuelle and the Cabaret DADA : Freak Show at the Festival Voix d’Amériques 2011.
