Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montréal. Using music and sound as a point of departure, she has created gestural electronic music performances, audiovisual interfaces, installations and interactive devices that articulate sound, light, movement and symbols. Her work investigates performance, both as a codified cultural manifestation, and as an embodied (re)enactment of symbolic systems through human and non-human agencies. It has been recognized and presented internationally, in festivals such as Prix Ars Electronica (AT), Sónar (ES, HK), MUTEK (MX, CA, AR, JP), ISEA (CA, KR), Transmediale (DE).
Unsculpt is an audiovisual performance by Myriam Bleau, exploring and deconstructing new sounds from an upcoming release. It features hybrid electronic music, mixing modular synths with digital synthesis and algorithms in Supercollider. Techniques of convolution, imitation, re-amplification and parallelism contribute to a sense of ambiguity between the sound sources, creating new assemblages of materials and textures. The performance also features the artist’s own visuals for the first time, using generative processes, 3D and machine learning to navigate through shifting architectures.
