In partnership with the Goethe-Institut Montreal

Electrical Walks by Berlin multimedia artist Christina Kubisch opens a completely surprising view of our usual surroundings. Whoever discovers the streets, buildings and shopping centres of Montréal or Québec, with headphones developed by Kubisch, will never see visual images of the city in the same way again. With this event, the artist makes us accomplices. We hear the inaudible around us and we become composers of our environment.

Electrical Walks have fascinated people in various cities in Europe and the Americas since 2004, and they are now coming to Canada for the first time. Electromagnetic fields which we are continually in contact with, through communication and security systems, wireless information transmission and other circuits, are captured through special sensors and transformed into audible frequencies.

Christina Kubisch was born in 1948 in Bremen, and belongs to the early generation of the sound art movement. Her artistic education was interdisciplinary, including painting, music and composition, before specializing with teachers in Hamburg, Graz, Zurich and Milan, where she studied electronics to further develop her experimentation with sound. Since the beginning of the 1970s, she has been performing her own compositions in concerts.
