International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Ringo Starr is the lungs, the heart and the organs of a strange project, a fixation that gnaws at Martin Tétrault’s insides. Haunted by the legendary figure, desiring to elevate him to the deserving status he currently considers nonexistent, the artist has created a work where the drummer is the lone attraction, the only one in a position to be lauded. Thus, with this one-of-a-kind performance, Martin Tétrault dexterously manipulates drum solos from a divers array of vinyls, while his colleague—here the Montreal drummer Alexander MacSween—reads and plays a unique selection of all the famous British drummer’s solos.Alexander MacSween navigates among rock, improvisation and electronic music; he works for various theatre producers and choreographers. He also oversees the FoodSoon project with Bernard Falaise and Fabrizio Gilardino. Martin Tétrault should require little introduction: he resides in that particular Pantheon of Turntablists, beside Phillip Jeck, Otomo Yoshihide, EriKm or Christian Marclay. His collaborations have been as numerous as his recordings, and are marked by a balance between curiosity, openness and generosity. This program will conclude then on a strong note of dexterity and practical humour by two veritable virtuosos.
