International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Martin Messier has been creating works merging sounds, objects and images for over fifteen years. His performances and installations, with clear choreographic undertones, place the body at the forefront of the experience. Having studied composition at Université de Montréal, he shifts toward an experimental sound practice that integrates image and video, and quickly starts developing performative audiovisual devices featuring everyday objects and the sound potential of materials. Messier produced several collaborative projects over the years, namely alongside Nicolas Bernier, Caroline Laurin-Beaucage, Anne Thériault, Jacques Poulin-Denis and Yro (Élie Blanchard). Presented in over 50 countries, his work has been widely praised and received several awards. A member of Perte de signal, a self-managed artistic hub located in Montréal’s Mile End, he also founded 14 lieux in 2010, a sound production company geared at the performing arts, where he acts as general and artistic director.
