Maxime Gordon, known professionally as Bénédicte, is a Toronto-born, Montréal-based music producer and sound artist. Her project, launched in 2015, features an experimental approach that weaves distorted field recordings, glittering vocal samples, and soaring synths to craft horizons that delve into introspection and emotional resonance. Bénédicte's distinctive approach is partly inspired by her internship at Budapest's 4DSOUND, where she developed a keen interest in spatial sound dynamics. This experience informs her creative process, allowing her to explore the boundaries between the mind and audio through innovative experiences.
Her recent works, including the EP When It Binds, released in 2021 under New York's Blueberry Records, reflect her fascination with the interplay of natural and synthesized sounds. Currently, Bénédicte is developing a new album and engaging with the local community through soundwalks in Montréal, demonstrating her commitment to connect with people in meaningful ways.
