Alexandre St-Onge - VUEIEN

VUEIEN is the sonic translation of multiple performances generated by various pragmatic approach tactics to the ungraspable that testify to the emergence of monstrous voices and hermetic entities through the creative process. The ungraspable here operates to interrupt any signifying chain, continually introducing new objects, bodies, noises onto the scene. In VUEIEN we encounter such entities and their compositional gathering and mutation, as they crowd around, hide in the shadows, or disperse, suddenly – as they conspire to thwart any form of capture. Formless. Becoming.
