(2020-06-19) Pelada · Stephanie Castonguay

Suoni Per Il Popolo, MUTEK Montréal et CKUT 90.3FM present:

19h30 - Pelada
Mobilizing and combative, much loved Montreal electronic duo Pelada - Chris Vargas and Tobias Rochman - explores themes of power, surveillance, social, environmental and gender politics over a recontextualized blend of Chicago house, Detroit techno with more abstract & abrasive club music. 

21h30 - Stephanie Castonguay
The (in)visible Choir is an experimental performance based on the sonification of light frequencies and video feedback. During my night walks, I noticed that despite being closed down, stores kept their signs on at night. I made recordings of their window displays, this night-time choir that produced rhythms, pulsations and oscillations. In these times of uncertainty, these became a representation of this weird state between denial and hope. Using the feedback generated by surveillance cameras, monitors and a DIY video mixer, I wanted to create the feeling of a psychedelic journey, cultivating the idea of transformation, through the manipulation of electrical matter, but also through the images of objects that seem to dissolve into their own feedback loops.

Suoni Per Il Popolo would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the kanien'keha:ka (Mohawk), a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations.
