International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music
Musique Nouvelle is the collaborative work of Simon Chioini (DJ Voilà) and Félix Gourd (Absurde).
Simon Chioini got into music while studying classical percussions and through a persistent examination of the weird electronic music of the 90s and 00s. His curiosity for the medium led him to achieve his Masters in Composition at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal. There, his music found influences from both the electroacoustic music pioneers and from the
contemporary underground scene. Today, he likes to blend genres into hybridized pieces. His practice as a DJ informs his compositional work.
Félix Gourd studied classical percussions at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal before shifting his practice towards digital art. His interest towards the experimental potential of 3D animation and a highly creative mind quickly brought him recognition as a VJ. Recently, his focus went back to his musical roots. Influenced by the Berlin underground scene and Detroit’s classic techno, he likes to blend continuous banging kick drums with distorted and crispy hi-hats toped with acid bass lines and DX7 chord hits.
Musique Nouvelle merges the artists interests and specialties into some kind of techno.
Sometimes very straightforward, then deconstructed, the duo’s music follows unusual structural paths.
