Mathieu Arsenault & Charles-André CoderreCA/QC

Montréal artist and filmmaker Charles-André Coderre pushes the boundaries of the traditional cinematic experience. Having obtained a master’s degree from Université de Montréal, his work led him to analog and experimental production, as well as real-time film distortion. A member of Montréal’s experimental collective Double Négatif, he also directed several short films as well as the feature-length Déserts (2016), and manipulates 16mm film for various live A/V performances such as Jerusalem In My Heart and Bangkok Loops. He also collaborates with Québec’s film magazine 24 images.

Montréal’s Mathieu Arsenault, electronic musician and sound artist, integrates and shapes the human voice into a complex electronic language. Founding member of Technical Kidman, with whom he released two albums, he frequently collaborates with the performing arts community (namely Hugo Dalphond, Projets Hybris and For Fauve), and produced works for Fondation PHI, La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines, Tangente Danse, the OK LÀ festival and Québec’s Mois Multi. His first solo album will be released later this year

Mathieu Arsenault & Charles-André Coderre CA/QCFractures Chimiques
World Premiere

Fractures chimiques blends Charles-André Coderre’s real-time 16mm projections with Mathieu Arsenault’s modular synthesizers. Light signals are harnessed directly on screen and transmitted back to synthesizers in order to generate a soundscape drawn from those very images, creating a sort of unprecedented dance between the two media. This novel interaction between image and sound makes for a unique sensory experience, reshaping photograms into musical notes, and vice versa.
