Artificiel.Process/('Martin.Tétreault') (CA)

WORLD DEBUT After critically acclaimed presentations of the Bulbes and Cubing projects, artificiel returns with the new live audio-visual performance artificiel.process('Martin Tétreault'). This Montreal unit, formed by Alexander Burton and Julien Roy, have created an expressive framework that allows for the manipulations and contextualizations of the sounds and images of different artists. For this first presentation of the artificiel.process, the artist Martin Tétreault joins the duo to play the role of special guest. He will bring along his one-of-a-kind mutant turntable with four tone arms. The result is a hypnotic and chaotic sonic universe, with plenty of sound but no records playing…. Martin Tétreault is an improvisational turntablist of international notoriety in the field of visual arts. His career is punctuated by numerous releases and performances with diverse collaborators such as Diane Labrosse, René Lussier, Jean Derome, Michel F Côté, I8U, Otomo Yoshihide, Kevin Drumm, Xavier Charles, Ikue Mori, and many others. At work since 1985, Tétreault’s methods these days explore the intrinsic qualities of the turntable: motoric noise, sonic excess, etc. This approach to noise permits him to respond to the question of what happens to authorial authority in the production of sound, and to invite these manifestations into the realm of electronic music.
