PLAY 7 - Ida Toninato & Pierre-Luc Lecours + Nick Schofield

Cinquième Salle August 27, 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.

Following a summer residency at the Avatar artist center in Quebec, this first collaboration between Ida Toninato and Pierre-Luc Lecours focuses on the dynamics between materials, energies and frequencies. To do this, the duo will use a baritone saxophone, an electric guitar and a modular synthesizer, modified using digital audio tools to form a single sound stream; everything is staged around a video dialogue between two screens, a visual metaphor for the energy content and movement of music.

For the debut live performance of Glass Gallery, Montréal-based musician, producer, and radio host, Nick Schofield summons the sonic analog of the light and space of the National Gallery of Canada using an illuminated Prophet-600. With signature tones of this polyphonic analog synthesizer, Schofield blends ambient, new age and environmental music, encouraging calm reflection and emotional release.
