Montréal interdisciplinary artist Alexis Langevin-Tétrault‘s practice combines musical composition, digital technologies, visual arts and performance. He participated in the founding of several electronic music and digital art projects, namely Alexeï Kawolski and the Falaises, DATANOISE, QUADr, ILEA, BetaFeed and Recepteurz collectives. He has also presented solo performances, such as Hypercube (one) and Interférences (String Network). His current solo work explores the concept of corporality through the use of audiovisual devices, physical performance, scenographic and dramaturgic work, exploration of sound timbre as well as conceptual and social reflections.

Sound artist Guillaume Côté explores Québec’s territorial, linguistic and social dynamics through a mixture of concrete, synthetic and vocal materials. His artistic pursuit focuses not only on the encounter with the Other through narrative or informative music, but also on the abstraction induced by modular systems. He favors a musical discourse centered on contrasts, one which explores the duality between synthetic sounds and acoustic instruments. An avid collaborator, he has co-founded Trames, a sound creation platform, is a member of the Falaises collective and currently holds the position of technical director at the artist-run Avatar centre in Québec. His work has been presented at a number of international festivals, notably Portugal’s GNRation, Sweden’s Intonal, France’s Festival Longueur d’onde, the UK’s BEAST Feast, the US’s Sweet Thunder Festival and Ireland’s New Music Festival.

Dawn (Aube in French) is a natural and universal phenomenon of transition, it designates the beginning of the process leading from one state to another, from night to day. At dawn, the light is revealed little by little, abstract shapes and silhouettes stand out, color gradually comes back to life, meaning emerges from the night.
presents an original and striking experience, playing with the effects of retinal persistence and the critical threshold of perception. This is one of Alexis Langevin-Tétrault and Guillaume Côté's most unique audiovisual creations, both dazzling and accessible. It is an open door to their imagination, from which emerges a certain exalted euphoria.

This project is supported by Conseil des Arts du Canada, Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Québec, the artist centers Avatar and Daïmôn in Canada, and Elektron Musik Studion (EMS) in Sweden.
