International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Creating dynamic visual projections at the intersection of sound, video and performance, Nelly-Eve Rajotte transmits the immersive, trancelike, and anxiety-producing elements of the natural world directly into our minds. Her audiovisual works of extreme "end spaces" (from sprawling architecture to endless frozen tundra) cause both physical and emotional reactions in the viewer, offering a world-piercing gaze that awes and unsettles at the same time.

While Rajotte's practice began with an art history degree in the mid-90's, her desire for hands-on artmaking led to a masters degree in visual arts at UQAM School of Visual and Media Arts. With the goal of "imagining a room where you can feel things," Rajotte began to integrate sound into her emerging body of work via a digital sound editing degree at Concordia. Exploring ideas of how to navigate and manipulate the physical states and psychological perceptions of the viewer, her work transports you amongst sprawling desert landscapes and desolate northern patches of forest. Recognition for her dynamic footage has poured in worldwide, with her work shown at ISEA in Montréal, transmediale and Lab30 festival in Germany.

This year, Rajotte will present a new audiovisual performance, like a film sound composition in real time, between music and sound texture, combining aerial images of Quebec landscapes, modular eurorack synthesizer, percussion sequencer (DFAM) and ribbon controller (ribbon 2). The modular voltage control will interact with the video image, using a CV to midi technique, which creates an organic environment based on the electrical signal between image and sound.

Nelly-Eve Rajotte’s performance is presented as part of Stream On, a project by MUTEK, with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. #BringingTheArtsToLife
