PLAY 4 - GOLPESAR + Lucas Paris & Alexis Langevin-Tétrault

Cinquième Salle August 25, 2021

From Tuesday, August 24 to Friday, August 27, the Play series’ eight double programs carve out space for experimentation inside Place des Arts’ Cinquième Salle. Play highlights the exploratory, visceral and immersive character of contemporary artists in digital art, audiovisual creation, and electronic music.

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.

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.
