As I mentioned previously, I premièred a new commissioned piece at Montréal’s AKOUSMA Festival called Terminal Burrowing. I was very honoured to present the work at the festival, which this year presented an amazingly curated line-up. While rooted in acousmatic music they featured exceptional sets by (among others) Ben Vida, Montréal should-be-supergroup Fünf (featuring improvisational electronic musicians Erin Sexton, Emilie Mouchous (gmackerr), Magali Babin, Andrea Jane Cornell, Anne Françoise Jacques, and Martine H. Crispo) as well as performances by François Bayle, Brunhilde Ferrari, and Monique Jean (premiering a new work) and more.
I thought I’d share a streaming link to the piece here, as well as an article from Blouin Artinfo about the concert, and my recent approach to electroacoustic which has largely moved away from digital processing and toward the use of acoustic and electromechanical means (both instruments, and “processing”)
And below is a stream of the piece.
