Monique Jean Le point d’écoute impossible
Listening from above the landscape vs. close to the ground is the topic of this research and its principal materials will come from site-specific, multitrack recordings. What are the practical, aesthetic and psychoacoustic implications of various methods used to reproduce surround sound? What does it mean in terms of perception to collapse a horizontal space into a vertical plan? To spread on an entire surface a space chosen within a precise point? To superimpose separate spaces? The OBORO residence will allow the artist to explore different possibilities of opening, closing, adding to, being next to and passing through sonic spaces.

Monique Jean lives and works in Montreal. An electroacoustic and sound artist, she is interested in the tensions, ruptures and clashes of sonic matter that produce a transmutation of the real into the poetic. This search for an organic substance takes various forms: stereo or multitrack electroacoustic pieces, musique mixte with live processing, sound installation (Point d’attaches ou les infidélités rotatives) and performance with the Theresa Transistor collective.
