« Chaosmose » performance
Studio d’Avatar (5th floor of Méduse)
September 8, 7 p.m.
To mark the 40th anniversary of La Bande Vidéo, Avatar invites the public to a sound and audiovisual journey through the vinyl record. For the occasion, Thierry Guibert (FR), visual artist and multimedia artist, and Martin Tétreault (QC), platinist, improviser, sound designer and visual artist, come together for an unprecedented multidimensional mixing performance. Fruit of a residency at Avatar last January, the experiments of the two artists allowed to select various processes of transformation of the disk and its components; the visual of the cover and its packaging, the vinyl material, the audio content, the label, the furrow. Chaosmose becomes a game where all the elements of the disc are explored, transformed, hybridized live by the duo, composing an unpredictable evolutionary performance.
