Montréal Télégraphe   Jean-Pierre Gauthier, Raymond Gervais, John Heward (2000)

This project originated when visual artists Jean-Pierre Gauthier, Raymond Gervais, and John Heward were enlisted by curators Louise Provencher and Richard Max Tremblay, selecting them for their common love of sound play as the stuff of dreams, ideas, and imagination.

This project originated when visual artists Jean-Pierre Gauthier, Raymond Gervais, and John Heward were enlisted by curators Louise Provencher and Richard Max Tremblay, selecting them for their common love of sound play as the stuff of dreams, ideas, and imagination. An opening arose with the triple centenary in 2000 of Canada’s first wireless transmission of the human voice, the founding of Montreal’s first gramophone company, and the construction of Montreal’s Telegraph Chambers.

 

Avatar produced this CD-ROM and CD for Montreal Telegraph: Sound as Iconographer, an exhibition at Espace Montréal Télégraphe featuring visual arts and musical installations and performances. The CD-ROM includes an introduction, exhibition materials, information on exhibition influences and historical technology, a bibliography, discography, and links. The CD has 10 tracks for which the artists were joined by five musician-collaborators.

 

The set was released by OHM éditions in 2000.
