SON/CONTEXTE 2018
SON/CONTEXTE 2018 Rencontre internationale | International Encounter (2018)

The international meeting on contextual sound practices will be held in Québec City from January 30 through February 2, 2018.

As part of a research project funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FRQSC), in collaboration with Avatar and La Chambre Blanche, artist and Université Laval professor Julie Faubert is presenting SON/CONTEXTE 2018, an international meeting on contextual sound practices.

Artists Brandon LaBelle (Berlin), Alex Reynolds (Brussels - Barcelona) and duet Jen Reimer & Max Stein (Montréal) are invited to shape a contextual sound experimentation in the company of students from the École d’art de l’Université Laval. Dalie Giroux (University of Ottawa) will also lay eyes and words on the creation projects, turning the art into a world event.
 
Presented by Avatar, artist Sébastien Cliche and Julie Faubert will be offering an unprecedented sound performance on Wednesday, January 31, at 6:30 p.m., at 783 Saint-Joseph Street East in Québec City. The performance stems from the duet’s research during a residency at Avatar. Sharing a collective studio, Cliche and Faubert’s respective practices have often overlapped. Their research is criss-crossed by many pathways revolving around a particular relationship with text, speech, words, and their presence in space.
