QUADr is an electroacoustic quartet for audiovisual performance and composition, comprised of Pierre-Luc Lecours, Myriam Boucher, Lucas Paris and Alexis Langevin-Tétrault. Using foley techniques, modular synthesizers, a graphics tablet and visual projections, they build an abstract audiovisual narrative and a performance focused on the musical interaction between performers.
Immersed in audio-reactive visual projections, the musicians play on modified bicycle wheels with which they create a large variety of electronic sounds, from deep impacts to bowed strings harmonies, interpreting the electroacoustic composition /cYcle written by the ensemble. The artists take up different roles, constantly changing the stage dynamic and revealing new instruments and new musical interactions throughout the show.
Lecours, Boucher, Paris and Langevin-Tétrault, composers and performers of post-rock, acousmatic and electronic music, bring you a unique creation: dark and at the forefront of technological experimentations and musical innovations.
