NEXTalks 2019: Martin Messier
In his latest project FIELD, composer, performer and videomaker Martin Messier assumes it is possible to create sounds using electromagnetic fields in our environment. These residual and imperceptible electric signals are picked up by electromagnetic transducer microphones, and become the generators of his performance. On stage, he plays with two connections patches that offer many possibilities of connecting various outputs and inputs. By a continuous movement of plugging and unplugging, Messier interacts with them, with noise and light compositions emerging thereby. With FIELD, Messier materializes a flow of power that is otherwise inaudible and invisible.
