Breaking through the walls of sound! Take part in a musical marathon on a sleepless night, suffused with extraordinary performances. A swarm of seasoned composers explore the different nuances of sound in a spatialized and immersive environment. In the comfort of your living room and equipped with a stereo headset, live this spatialized sound experience. Beyond geographical borders, styles, aesthetics, sound objects, generations, borders, senses and cultures, the acoustic resonances will send chills up your spine. Here is the opportunity to appreciate the multiplicity, richness and variety of the work of performers and composers associated with GRMS, the Hexagram network and MNM.

SYMPOSIA

Symposium Musical Diversity After the Pandemic
As part of the GRMS series La Grande Écoute.

Sunday, February 28, 2021 9:30 am – 12:30pm
http://smcq.qc.ca/smcq/fr/evenement/43302

Associated with the La Grande Nuit concert and the Beyond Borders theme, two colloquiums are brought together to explore, each in their own way, going beyond borders and scales that cross sound, musical and social universes. Thus, sound creators, researchers and thinkers will be invited to reflect in two stages on different aspects related to this theme.

The Musical Diversity After the Pandemic symposium will address the following questions: The global arts landscape — especially that of live arts — has taken a hard hit with the COVID-19 pandemic and is now undergoing substantial changes. Our communities and networks are working tirelessly to find new strategies to support cultural life and its artists, whilst institutions and curators reinvent themselves to align with a new digital reality. In partnership with the Nordic countries, we are exploring the question of diversity in this new context. What is the current state of our field in Québec and in the Nordic countries? How can we learn from each other?

Presentations by Sandeep Bhagwati, Brandon Farnsworth, Anna Jakobsson, Vanessa Massera.

Partnership: matralab, Nordic-Québec Researcher Exchange Project, SMCQ, Concordia University, Ultima Festival Oslo, Konstmusiksystrar.

Participants : Sandeep Bhagwati, Myriam Boucher, Gabriel Dharmoo, Brandon Farnsworth, Terri Hron, Anna Jakobsson, Adele Kosman and Vanessa Massera.

Symposium Sound Media Beyond Borders
As part of the GRMS series La Grande Écoute.

Sunday, February 28, 2021 2:00 – 5:00 pm
http://smcq.qc.ca/smcq/fr/evenement/43303
Associated with the La Grande Nuit concert and the Beyond Borders theme, two colloquiums are brought together to explore, each in their own way, going beyond borders and scales that cross sound, musical and social universes. Thus, sound creators, researchers and thinkers will be invited to reflect in two stages on different aspects related to this theme.

The Sound Media Beyond Borders conference consists of reflecting on and studying how sound media and music can help us understand and apprehend new perceptual, temporal, geographic, climatic and biological frontiers (of which COVID-19 is a manifestation). Through each of these themes, humans are confronted with scales that are beyond their comprehension.

Artists and researchers will try to answer questions concerning: going beyond borders in the field of sound or in the research-creation process; The paradigm according to which artists must shift or extend the horizons of expectations; Explore or transgress borders or limits.

Participants : Sofian Audrey, Ricardo Dal Farra, Philippe-Aubert Gauthier, Simon-Pierre Gourd, André-Éric Létourneau, Louis-Claude Paquin, Rodrigo Sigal, Alexandre St-Onge.

Presented by Simon-Pierre Gourd - GRMS as part of the GRMS series La Grande Écoute.
