Montreal Life Support & WoulgUK/QC+CA/QC

Born in the United Kingdom and now based in Montréal, David Gardener, better known as Montreal Life Support, creates complex installations merging music, sound, lighting, video projections and robotics. His work aims to inspire and lift audiences from the banalities of everyday existence by shedding some light on the many facets of the universe.

Based in Montréal, artist and musician Greg Debicki, also known as Woulg, challenges preconceptions through glitch music, audiovisual manipulation and generative algorithms. Having studied Fine Arts in Alberta and Musical Composition in the United Kingdom, he set out to design generative software, custom hacks and interactive projections in order to push his art ever further. Woulg performed in Europe, in the Americas and in Australia, and also notably manages Studio Marie Anne, offering classes in composition, sound design and programming.

Montreal Life Support & Woulg UK/QC+CA/QCEmpty Vessels
World Premiere

Uniquely complex AV performance, Empty Vessels merges robotics, AI neural networks, classical instrumentation and experimental metaphysics. Custom-built by Montreal Life Support in order to play each string at the same time, three sophisticated robotic structures cradles as many cellos placed at the center of the installation; linked together by Woulg’s intricate web of algorithms, these automatons will independently compose evolving yet synthetic harmonies, transcending the very artists who gave them life.
