EXPLORATION AND CREATION IN SOUND ART

DETONATIONS

WINTER-SPRING 2021

The DAÏMÔN Production Centre is proud to officially inaugurate its ambisonic studio by presenting DETONATIONS ; a sound art exploration and creation project.

Seven multidisciplinary artists and collectives are invited to invest our new studio to develop works and share their approach to sound spatialization under the theme DETONATIONS.

DÉTONATIONS is a conception by DAÏMÔN, realized within the framework of the Outaouais 2019-2020 Territorial Partnership Program and receives financial support from the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec, the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation and the city of  Gatineau.

Nicolas Bernier

Artist and composer Nicolas Bernier takes advantage of his visit to the DAÏMÔN Production Center to inaugurate our new ambisonic studio. He is taking advantage of the excellent acoustic quality of the space to serve several sound creation projects that require precision in sound processing, mixing and composition.

Nicolas Bernier creates performances and audiovisual installations aimed at establishing a dialogue between sound and tangible matter. Shaped by his work in film, literature, dance and theater, his language mixes elements of music, photography, design, science, video art, architecture, lighting design and scenography. In the midst of this eclecticism, her artistic preoccupations remain constant: the balance between the cerebral and the sensual, and between organic sources and digital processing.

He is the winner of the prestigious Golden Nica at the Prix Ars Electronica 2013 (Austria), his work is widely recognized and presented worldwide.
