Myléna Bergeron (CA)
Having studied both voice and electroacoustic music, Myléna Bergeron has a penchant for finely-polished work. Her compositions centre on original field recordings, to which she applies digital treatments and tight production skills. Her new tracks retain the evocative powers of the original sound recordings, which are embellished rather than obscured by her manipulations and digital effect. While Bergeron's approach is highly personal and somewhat imbued with feelings of nostalgia and sadness, the end results are decidedly original and refreshing, prompting repeated listenings. For her MUTEK performance, visuals are served by Mademoiselle H.
