An unprecedented collaboration created by Avatar
Together, these two artists explore discs as a recurring pattern in their respective practice. This time of research-exploration spent at Avatar is a unique opportunity for an encounter between two experienced artistic approaches. Thierry Guibert creates from his instrument-work Solaris which allows him to play-transform graphic discs into sounds to produce audiovisual performances. In the field of visual arts, Martin Tétreault mostly explores the turntable’s intrinsic qualities: motor noises, parasite sounds, etc. With an analogical approach, he uses needles as much as prepared surfaces and small electronical instruments.
