Driven by experimentation, Castonguay investigates electronic audio circuitry as a physical process and phenomenon that leaves a palpable, audible trace. Her approach to sound and DIY electronics is playful, practical and organic: she disassembles and repurposes small, obsolete, barely audible machines to reveal the resonance, glitches and random sounds unexpectedly hidden within.
DIY electrical explorations, circuit-bent obsolete electronics wired for sound and motion; experimental audiovisual performances and art installations exploring memory; chaos and the materiality of technologies
La performance Scanner Me, Darkly (2019), l'installation Floating Ground (2018)
At MUTEK Castonguay performs Scanner Me, Darkly, converting the optical signals of altered scanner heads into sound. She also performs in Ensemble d'oscillateurs, an analog oscillator ensemble conducted by Nicolas Bernier, re-sculpting pieces by early electronic music composers
