A blur of darkness and light, melody and static, Maxime Corbeil-Perron's music and audiovisual creations twitch and undulate in their own intense cosmos of stuttering film reels and underlying drone.

A composer with an impressive experimental streak and a researcher's inquisitive mind, Corbeil-Perron draws from electronic music, avant-garde cinema and visual arts to craft his music and his audiovisual projects. Under his monikers DRESDEN and Le Poisson d'Argent he shows another side of his compositional versatility, merging minimalist glitch techno with high-energy rhythms, synth noise-melodies and acoustic solos. He collaborates with Félix-Antoine Morin as Political Ritual, experimenting in transcendent abstract sound art, drone and electro-acoustics, and vaults into heavy ambient instrumentals in post-rock group Le Pélican Noir. He's collaborated with numerous Montréal musicians, including Kohlenstoff Records label-mates, in recordings and in performance, and composed mixed-media and musical work for electronics and acoustic instruments. He's received awards for his work at international festivals and Musicworks magazine ex æquo prize for his 2013 audiovisual compositions Vertiges and Ghostly.

Corbeil-Perron's newest A/V project, Imaginary Optics, has us wearing classic 3D glasses in order to step into a minimal hyperspeed world of real-time sound and image for an old school/new school experience of future-past-again.
