Martin Tétreault (CA)

Martin Tétreault is an internationally renowned improvisational turntablist with a background in the visual arts. Having left behind his experiments with musical quoting, he currently explores the intrinsic qualities of the record player: motor noises, static, etc. His tools include needles, specially prepared surfaces, and small electronic instruments. Entirely analogue, his bruitist aesthetic allows him to elegantly sidestep the thorny issue of royalties. When he wants a break from making music, Tétreault returns to the visual arts, subjecting books and magazines to all manner of sanding, scraping, and slicing.
