Entry: Pay what you can
On Wednesday June 10, 2015, at 8 PM, Agence TOPO presents another edition of its Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen series with RIPALIPER, a new performance from sound artist and composer Steve Heimbecker, at Eastern Bloc, 7240 Clark, in Montreal.
Since 2008, Heimbecker has written nearly 2000 cards comprised of word plays, puns and neologisms pertaining to daily events and the changing paradigms of artistic life. RIPALIPER proposes to remix the most recent of these statements translated into soundtracks by a software that transcribes letters into sounds.
RIPALIPER is a performance where the hand-written notes are projected on the 3 large-scale video screens asynchronously to allow free associations of words, images and sounds, while a multi-channel soundtrack is mixed live in a quadraphonic environment.
Since the early 1980’s Steve Heimbecker has been creating artwork for multi-channel sound systems, multi-channel data representation, audio performance, installation, large-scale sculpture, video montage, and fine arts in general. He lives and works in Sherbrooke, or in situ during various artist residencies or commissions.
Agence TOPO has provided support to create this project by Steve Heimbecker with the collaboration of MaxMSP programmer Etienne Grenier.
