Sound performance for "Homemade sound systems" // Suoni per il popolo

On June 10th 2013, Suoni Per Il Popolo organized a special sound performance evening: "Homemade sound systems". For this night, the artists, Stéphane Claude, Hélène Prévost and myself only used custom sound systems that were part of the performance. For this special and exciting night, I used my 16-channel beamformer orginally built in 2007 for an installation. For "Homemade sound system" at Eastern Bloc I used the beamformer to acoustically scan the room and interact with reflecting surface based on delay-and-sum beamforming. Pictures of the setup in the afternoon below.

Here is a link to a video excerpt, unfortunately, we don't get the spatial effect:

Sound performance at Sala Rossa // "Exceptions" by curator Eric Mattson

On April 26th 2013, the first night of "Exceptions" by Eric Mattson was presented at Sala Rossa. I played along Alexandre St-Onge and Raydmond Gervais. Pictures of my performance below. It was based on a live experiment based my recent sound installation "Motifs et moirés`that relies on digital loudspeakers and spatially-dependent psychoacoustics masking. Listeners must move arround the loudspeakers the hear the missing voice.

Thanks to Eric Mattson, Alexandre St-Onge, Raydmond Gervais, Sala Rossa, Tanya St-Pierre, Manon Labrecque, Oboro and Canada Art Council.
