Evening of Sounds and Images

At Espace Hyperion, 190, rue Saint-Joseph Est, Québec

Québec, January 9, 2012 – Folie/Culture, in collaboration with Avatar, presented Beaucoup de bruit pour voir an evening of sounds and images combining a sound performance by Érick d’Orion, pieces from the Folie/Culture’s introduction workshop to audio art, and the Minute Video 2011.

Audio Art Creation Workshop
Last fall for the first time, Folie/Culture offered in collaboration with the Avatar center a workshop where participants were introduced to audio art and lived a truly creative experience. Led by artist Erick d’Orion, the workshop was an introduction to work on computer and turntable, as well as experimentation with recording and sounds processing.

Érick d’Orion gave us Déclinaisons, a sound performance resulting from research at this workshop. We also listened to the new audio pieces created during the workshop by Blar, Nicolas Touzin, Michel Viger, and Benoît Woo.

Minute video Folie/Culture 2011
It was also an opportunity to attend the premiere of the Minute video Folie/Culture 2011. On the program were the minutes made during the Introduction to Video Workshop, as well as short films selected after a public call for submissions from Folie/Culture. The compilation brought together proposals for one minute, one-sequence clips around the theme Bring out Your Dead by Blar, Annie Brunette, Guillaume Girard and Emily King, Martin Horvat, Myriam Jacob-Allard, Jean Lapointe, John Latour, Camille Mazaleyrat, Jennifer Ottaway, Catherine Plaisance, Genevieve Robitaille, Ricardo Savard, Nicolas Touzin and Svetlana Volic.

Beaucoup de bruit pour voir! a special evening to tease and tickle your ears and eyes!
