A MAÏZING SESSION WITH...
CONSTANTINE KATSIRIS (ca)
Scant Intone is the solo project of Canadian artist Constantine Katsiris dedicated to experiments in modern audio. The output varies from stark minimalist tones to densely complex textures with a sound palette that incorporates elements of field recordings, shortwave radio, hand-drawn waveforms, raw data, and digital sound synthesis. Focused on researching psychoacoustics, the perception of sound, spatiality, waveform anomalies, and various audio phenomena discovered while exploring the frequency spectrum, his compositions are excursions in abstract electronic music with influences including ambient, lowercase, microsound, noise, glitch and drone.
Constantine has been active in exploring the electronic arts since the early 1990s as an artist, curator, designer and producer. Over a period of more than fifteen years he has been integral in organizing countless events for experimental, improvised and electronic music both locally and abroad. These events have featured performances by artists from across Canada as well as international artists from all over the globe. This experience lead him to be involved with programming showcases for world-renowned festivals and booking international tours for artists on Panospria, his own sub-label of No Type Records based in Montréal.
Live performances have been numerous over the past years, including many collaborations and improvisations with like-minded audio and video artists. Katsiris has brought his sound to many notable venues, such as La Société des Arts Technologiques [Montréal], Whitechapel Art Gallery [London], Brut Konzerthaus [Vienna], and SESI Art & Cultural Center [São Paulo]. Scant Intone has also shared the stage with Fennesz, Crys Cole, KK Null, Tim Hecker, Aidan Baker and Sawako, to name a few.
JULIE ROUSSE (fr)
Lives and works in Paris. Composer, improviser.
Self-taught sound artist, it is in theatre she made her first steps as a noise composer in Montreal.
Collector of sounds she finds in the streets of the world, this raw material is for her an infinite source of rhythms and colours, which she shapes with real time sound treatment software – real time being the essential element of her spontaneous and chaotic approach.
Her main idea is to regain an organic feeling in music by means of electronic devices and improvisational acts. Working between composition and improvisation, she has developed her very own resonant and poetic universe, with a marked taste for abstract narration, turbulence of details and inextricable disorder of life.
