Bruno Julian and Marc A. Reinhardt work and live in Montreal, have been performing together as Hyena Hive since 2005. Blending elements of noise, power electronics, musique concrète and industrial unruly behavior. The intensity of their sonic assault relies on volume and sheer embodied presence.
Resume of the piece:
This piece furthers the hands-on experimentations Lemieux and Hyena Hive have been conducting in their respective mediums as they engage in improvised dynamic relays. Their interaction is not based on material inputs or outputs but ingrained in lived experience to translate a powerful unified audiovisual gesture.
