4:3

Montréal-based Mimi Allard has been composing and showcasing her sound design talents in the context of movie soundtracks and installation artworks. Allard’s academic training started with Intermedia Studies at Concordia University, before opting to further her knowledge of audio synthesis, programming and 3D audio spatialization. Using modular synthesis, programming languages, and by developing a new acoustic voice-based digital instrument, Allard seeks to innovate and explore the physics, mathematics and geometry behind sound synthesis.

Currently pursuing a Masters in Composition and Sound Design, Gabriel Lavoie Viau’s creative path has led him to compose original music for theatre and cinema. After studies in digital composition and cinema, the Montréal-based musician started collaborating with interactive media studio Iregular for international projects. More recently, Viau has shared his explorations in the field of modular synthesis and analog-digital interface interaction through workshops in Montréal’s art centres Eastern Bloc and OBORO.

With their new project entitled 4:3, the duo explores math-based tuning ratios, as well as frequency modulation synthesis. With the help of a sound module created by themselves, their mind-bending microtonal explorations are bound to lure the listener into an elaborate dance of sine waves.
