Martin Messier and Jacques Poulin Denis Le projet Pupitre

Martin Messier + Jacques Poulin-Denis : 'Le projet Pupitre'CA

The Pencil Project is a performance piece created by Montreal based sound artists Martin Messier and Jacques Poulin-Denis. Their shared curiosity for graphic arts and collaborations led them to create a live electronic music piece inspired by the physicality of writing and the imagery it articulates. Using computer software, they translate scribbling, scratching and drawing into music. From the grainy voice-like noises of a pencil on a page, to the violent textures of ripping paper, a rich vocabulary is explored, transformed and layered to create an evocative atmosphere. Liberated from the computer screen and equipped with hands-on objects, Messier and Poulin-Denis explore a new form of expression. Through an enterprising and stimulating performance, the musicians bring computer music intimately close to playing an actual musical instrument.
