Alexis Langevin-Tétrault — Hypercube
Composer and stage artist Alexis Langevin-Tétrault's work brings together devices he has meticulously crafted, kinetic physical performances, scenographic and dramaturgic components, critical and meticulous use of digital audio technologies, studies of timbre, and explorations of conceptual and social themes. His work has been presented internationally at more than 100 events—including at MUTEK Montreal, MUTEK Japan, and MUTEK Barcelona, as well as Ars Electronica, ISEA, L.E.V., Transart, ADAF, Biennale WRO, Intonal, Biennale NÉMO, NEXT, Électrons Libres Scopitone, BIAN-Elektra, Akousma, Transient, Visions of the future, Mois Multi, Sines & Squares, and Espace du son—and Alexis has received awards around the world from Foundation Destellos in 2014 and 2015; the SOCAN Foundation in 2015; and Exhibitronic, International Electroacoustic Music Week, and Musiques & Recherches in 2016.
Langevin-Tétrault will present the world premiere of Hypercube (one), a live 22-minute audiovisual performance. Through his interactions with a one-of-a-kind device, he converts his physical movements and exertions into a melding of sound and light. This project allows him to continue to push the limits of an approach that marries the corporeal with electronic music and digital art, resulting in an intimate, contrast-filled piece.
