GOLPESAR IR/QC — A Body Without, and in Need
For MUTEK, Montréal-based, Iranian Canadian queer artist and musician GOLPESAR (Rouzbeh Shadpey) has prepared a special live version of his forthcoming record A Body Without, and in Need. With electric guitar, avant-garde electronics, and spoken word, GOLPESAR will enact a communal ritual of self-mourning where evil eyes are dispelled, monolithic selves are unsounded, and memory is allowed to flood.
Lucas Paris & Alexis Langevin-Tétrault FR/QC+CA/QC — square one
Born from a desire to reunite, both musically and in person after a year of lockdowns, Lucas Paris and Alexis Langevin-Tétrault return to the core of their collaboration with square one, a streamlined audiovisual performance. With modular synthesizers, the duo simultaneously projects audio and light on a simple square, immersing spectators in a sensory experience assembled from sound and light abstractions. The approach aims to reconnect with the origins of electronic music, recontextualized through a contemporary approach and tools.
