The Centre de production DAÏMÔN is proud to welcome Claude Périard in residence.
Claude Périard is a Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist whose work focuses primarily on sound art and music. They holds a bachelor’s degree in digital music from the Université de Montréal and has released a dozen albums of pop and experimental music, sound installations and experimental films. They is also a sound recordist and mixer for film.
A multidisciplinary artist and musician, Périard seeks above all to create bridges between the various visual and sound mediums. Their creations are articulated around a social concept. Claiming creativity at all costs with the means at hand, Lo-Fi, open source software rather than technological finesse, their slightly raw aesthetic is put at the service of the idea, which is metaphorized through the form. We definitely find a search for bareness, a quest for the infra-thin in their most recent media works, sound or visual. With their engaged art, more philosophical than militant, Périard expresses themself through images (visual or sound) rather than through abstraction.
