An Immersive Theater

August 25 & 26, from 7 to 10 pm | Théâtre Maisonneuve in Place des Arts

Large-scale, sensory audiovisual works that merge image, sound and technology are at the heart of the two A/Visions programs. Artificial intelligence, neuroscience, modular synthesizers and analog visual landscapes meet lyrical art and electronic vibrations for an organic and transformative experience.

Alessandro Cortini & Marco Ciceri IT

Cinema Blackbox by Kyoka & Shohei Fujimoto may contain brief moments of stroboscopic effects.


Focus on Alessandro Cortini

Best known as a member of Nine Inch Nails, Alessandro Cortini’s solo live performances propel the audience into a whirlwind of intricately-rendered emotional dynamics, expertly pushing the limits of contemporary electronic music and extracting unabashedly human emotions out of synthesized noises. Born out of walls of analog equipment, Cortini’s sonic patchwork is as hopeful as it is menacing.

Focus on Hatis Noit

Hatis Noit presents the Canadian live debut performance of her much applauded album Aura. The name “Hatis Noit” itself is taken from Japanese folklore, meaning the stem of the lotus flower. The lotus represents the living world, while its root represents the spirit world, therefore Hatis Noit is what connects the two. For the artist, music represents the same netherworld with its ability to move and transport us to the other side; the past, a memory, our subconscious. The haunting tones of Aura invites the audience into these stirring, nostalgic soundscapes.
