Sonic Bed Québec 2

Residency
June 2009

Offering both an acoustic and social encounter which explore our perception of sound, Kaffe Matthews’ Sonic Bed, developed at Avatar and presented during Mois Multi 2007, is reinvestigated with new soundtracks that Magali Babin, John Oswald and Georges Azzaria created during a residency in June 2008.

Visitors are invited to lie down on a wood-framed Sonic Bed activated by the vibrations of a soundtrack that resonates along the body and offers a “sound massage” that can be as relaxing as it is unsettling.

Kaffe Matthews

Since 1990, Kaffe Matthews has been one of the most active artists on the new electronic music scene. She uses custom designed software as well as a mic, a theremin, and feedback. She shifted to sonic furniture building with Sonic Bed_London (2005), which has led to the creation of a substantial ongoing venture: the worldwide Bed Project, an operation led by the research project music for bodies, directed by Matthews, of which she plans to create twelve versions internationally.
