Electronic Vibrations — A Sound Changes the World by Thomas Von Steinaecker
Whether it’s avant-garde, techno, or hip-hop, today’s electronic music is a driving force for stylings from contemporary classical music to pop. Born in the aftermath of the Second World War, electronic music first emerged in the Essai studio in Paris and later in Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Electronic Studio in Cologne, which became avant-garde centres. How could rooms full of bizarre equipment become miraculous places whose vibrations excited the whole world? With the participation of Jean-Michel Jarre, Eliane Radigue, Jan St. Werner, Simon Stockhausen, Jaqueline Schaeffer, Peter Baumann, Emil Schult, and François Bonnet
ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART OF BAIE-SAINT-PAUL
The International Symposium of Contemporary Art of Baie-Saint-Paul welcomes, each year, for a month, twelve artists from different generations and from various disciplines. Coming from Quebec and elsewhere in the world, they are invited to create a work for the public to see around a theme. In addition to these performances, there will be lectures, artist presentations, fun kiosks and film screenings related to the theme.
To celebrate its 40th anniversary, thirteen artists instead of twelve will be at work. Animated exchanges and discussions with the artists, live painting sessions, installations, sculptural pieces, digital and sound art creations, artist talks, and parallel activities will make this edition an event not to be missed!
