mesocosm, AV performance [excerpt] @ MUTEK Montreal, 2021

Montréal trio mesocosm, collaboration between videographer Emma Forgues and musicians Philippe Vandal et Joël Lavoie, sets out to explore an autonomous ecosystem loosely constructed from a blend of modular syntheses, field recordings, evocative computer-generated elements and live video manipulation. Orchestrated from this universe’s erratic and unpredictable soundscape reminiscent of glitch, noise, ambient and electroacoustics, a new reality will emerge, teetering on the edge of chaos and harmony, a veritable symbiosis between the synthetic and the organic.

The trio will propel audiences on an audiovisual quest into an alien ecosystem filled with soundscapes both synthetic and organic, merging glitch and electroacoustics.
