Pulse | Iteration II
2016

Iteration is the second piece of a composition cycle exploring the musical concept of pulsation. This composition is built around the ideas of acceleration and deceleration of iterative sound and the concept of polyrhythm. The sounds come exclusively from electronic sources and they were played mostly played in real time and then reorganized into a coherent piece.

Éclats | Rouge
2014

Éclats | Rouge is part of the cycle of electroacoustical pieces that explore the timbre and textural possibilities given by acoustic musical instruments being played in non-traditional ways. In this piece, the piano has been seen like any other sound emitting object, it has been played directly on the harmony table with different objects to obtain a wide and rich array of sound objects. These sounds have been cut and then edited into an entirely new context, to which have been added programmed sound layers to create a duet in which both acoustic and synthesis sounds are sometimes put in opposition and other times fusion to each other.

Impacts discrets
2014

The work on Impacts discrets revolves around the idea of creating an abstract, yet clearly articulated physical system in the midst of which the music evolves and reacts. A system with its own laws, a sort of surreal microcosm where space is subjected to another gravity and to other physical laws.

Éclats | Blanc
2015

Flûtes: Julie Delisle

Éclats | Blanc is part of the cycle of electroacoustical pieces that explore the timbre and textural possibilities given by acoustic musical instruments being played in non-traditional ways. In this piece, I have been working with the flutist Julie Delisle to get different kinds of sounds and articulations from flutes and I have been manipulating a timpani to get percussive sounds. The use of different microphone positions has permitted to get a wide array of sound objects spreading in all the frequencies spectrum. These sounds have been cut and then edited into an entirely new context, to which have been added programmed sound layers to create a duet in which both acoustic and synthesis sound are sometimes put in opposition and other times fusion to each other.

Storm
2015

STORM is an audiovisual work exploring sound and image interactions in different scenes similar to moving paintings. The work is inspired by the natural storm behaviors translated into an audio-visual language that is both abstract, expressive and poetic. This work is a collaboration between Myriam Boucher for the visual and Pierre-Luc Lecours for music.
