MARTIN TÉTREAULT'S QUATUOR: A QUARTET FOR TURNTABLES

The idea for developing a quartet of turntables was first birthed by Martin Tétreault during ther creation of his Document 4 (2004-2006), a collaboration with the Montreal choreographer Lynda Gaudreau who invited him to compose a piece for turntables, which would then the interpreted by her choreography in Munich, in 2006.

The challenge for Tétreault consisted in elaborating a notational system destined for non-musicians, unfamiliar with the management of turntables, who would have to read the parts and interpret them live, with precision. This constraint incited the artist to invent a simple system, imagined and comprhendible at first glance, and to preparediverse surfaces to be read by the needle of the turntable.
