For the first Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec, the internationally known artist Jorge Orta asked Avatar to produce a soundtrack for the Quebec version of his Life Nexus, a participatory project presented in collaboration with Folie/Culture. Life Nexus involves projections of immense luminographic images of hearts, in Quebec City onto the walls of the Robert-Giffard hospital.

Steeve Lebrasseur, David Michaud, and Philippe Venne composed sound pieces for use during the projection, and contemporary dance artist Lydia Wagerer improvised a response to the results in real time. Avatar also brought in Boris Firquet to produce a video of this memorable event.

Avatar’s pieces and an interview with Jorge Orta were broadcast on Avatar’s CKIA-FM Excavation sonore program that September.
