International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Messier’s work takes shape through the relationship between sound and material; he gives life to sound through various objects such as alarm clocks, sewing machines, film projectors, pens and self conceived machines. Messier pushes the everyday imaginary into new terrain, magnifying various entities by giving them a voice and reinventing their function. Messier also produces collaborative work that melds dance and music. At the centre of his dialogue between sound and bodies in motion, is a desire to flip the customary hierarchy associated with music and choreography, making sound the driving force of movements. Messier has presented his multidisciplinary work at esteemed events around the world, namely Berlin’s Transmediale, Barcelona’s Sonar and Paris’ Nemo. In 2010, he founded 14 lieux, a sound production company for performing arts to give a platform to sound work in the art scene. This card carrying member of the MUTEK family returns to the festival with Field, a patch field spectacular, created in collaboration with Thomas Payette (Robert Lepage/Ex Machina). This 30 minute performance lays bare invisible and inaudible power flows through constant tinkering with luminous cables facing the audience. Messier’s body becomes a conduit, a part of the field, as electric waves and projections of Messier’s movements provide ghostly apparitions of modulated magic.
