Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville (FIMAV), which its general manager and artistic director Michel Levasseur sees as an annual family reunion, unveils the details about all three of its programming components. The 32nd edition will take place May 16-22, 2016. After two years at Pavillon Arthabaska, where festival-goers discovered the landscape of Victoriaville and its surroundings, FIMAV is moving to Le Carré 150, a new cultural space set in the heart of the downtown area, right where Cinéma Laurier used to stand. However, FIMAV maintains its two halls at Colisée Desjardins, where most of the concerts will be presented as usual.
Our circuit of sound art installations in public spaces – in its 7th year as a major component of our programming – will invite visitors to “watch sounds, listen to pictures, and experience unique sensations” (Érick D’Orion, curator) at the Charles-Édouard-Mailhot Library, along the bike trail, at Place Ste-Victoire, at Atoll art actuel (previously known as Le GRAVE), and for the first time at Centre d’art Jacques-et-Michel-Auger. The following sound art installations will be accessible to the public between 10 am and 8 pm from Monday, May 16 to Sunday, May 22, 2016: NATHALIE BUJOLD « Études vidéographiques pour instruments à cordes », PHIL ALLARD « Détournement », AUDIOTOPIE « Silo », CATHERINE BÉCHARD / SABIN HUDON « The Listeners », ADAM BASANTA « Listening through a small plastic box » / « Pirouette » & « Message past future », and FRANÇOIS QUÉVILLON « En attendant Bárðarbunga ». Access to all sound art installations is free. Now that’s a great way of touching the music – with or without notes!
Montréal-based artist LOUIS-PHILIPPE CÔTÉ explores issues of space, system, violence, and control through various projects. He is interested, among other things, in the colonization of machines, precognitive editing techniques, and science fiction. His « Schizo-Système » series will be exhibited in FIMAV’s main hall at the Colisée.
