1. MESSIER DOESN’T SEW : HE RESUSCITATES OLD SINGERS PUT ASLEEP YEARS AGO IN ORDER TO RELEASE, IN SOME MAGICAL WAYS, THE LUMINOUS AND SONOROUS PRESENCE OF THE PAST. HE CARRIES HIS PUBLIC IN A DREAMLIKE UNIVERSE WHERE EACH MACHINE, AS SINGULAR SUBJECT, IS MAGNIFIED. AFTER YEARS OF SILENCE, SEWING MACHINE ORCHESTRA IS GIVING SPEECH TO THESE SURVIVING OBJECTS OF THE INDUSTRIAL ERA.

    THIS CREATION WAS MADE POSSIBLE WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE CANADA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS.

    AUDIO, LIGHT, PERFORMANCE : MARTIN MESSIER
    ELECTRONIC: SAMUEL ST-AUBIN
