EMILIE MOUCHOUS

Artist in residence

From March 21 to April 17, 2016


Les Révélatrices is part of a serie of works focusing on the liveliness of electricity, and in which electricity is a woman or the sum of all the women traveling in pursuit of their love. She is everywhere ! Les Révélatrices proposes the creation of a series of portable sound boxes for the exploration of elefctromagnetic waves around us. The residency project is focused on creating new circuits inspired by radios systems and synthesizers. It also looks at our posture of listening, how when can become an antenna, and what is the connection to the electricity in that situation.

Émilie Mouchous is a French, Montreal-based sound artist who makes her own electronic instruments. Her sonic and spatial exploratory activities are characterized by the creation of mini autonomous systems and take multiple forms: radio programs, series of electronic objects, collaborative free improvisation, web art, radio transmission installations. She is interested in shared sound spaces, and likes to bring concrete sounds, movement, touch, voice and electronic sources together in a lively manner. Her works have been presented in contexts such as the BENT Festival NY, Deep Wireless (NAISA, Toronto), AKOUSMA, Suoni per il popolo, MUTEK (Montreal), Kunstradio (Vienna), Caravansérail (Rimouski), Radio LX festival de arte radio (Lisbon), the Radia European Network, Free Music Archive and Radius (Chicago).
