AKOUSMA @ LANAUDIÈRE
Thursday, July 16 / 8 p.m.
Musée d’art de Joliette
145, Père-Wilfrid-Corbeil Street
The Festival de Lanaudière is proud to be associated with AKOUSMA in presenting AKOUSMA@LANAUDIÈRE 2015 at the Musée d’art de Joliette.
Through its exploration of the richly diverse forms of electroacoustic music and its brilliantly creative minds, AKOUSMA@ LANAUDIÈRE 2015 presents an entertaining show to delight the eyes and ears. On the program are works by Louis DUFORT and Simon CHIOINI, plus performances by Myriam BLEAU, whose work, done on original musical installations and interfaces, combines elements of hip-hop, techno, and pop; Jean-François LAPORTE, an intuitive creator who has been making musical instruments of non-conventional sonority for the past several years; and American composer Keith FULLERTON WHITMAN, whose visual sound world abounds in richly complex images originating in a synthesized system from his module.
Here is an invitation to lose yourself on unexplored paths, to discover new and strange sonic landscapes that hover between the magic of dreams and the realism of daily life, between the noise of the city and the song of the sirens, between all that pulses between heaven and earth.
Ticket includes a visit to the museum from 6 p.m.
