The debut of Montreal sound artist Myriam Bleau.Includes 8 visually interesting electronic sound works using light frames.

"Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montreal. She creates audiovisual systems that go beyond the screen, such as sound installations and performance-specific musical interfaces. Her hybrid electronic practice explores music performance as a codified cultural manifestation and recontextualizes pop For'Lumens & Profits' Myriam has exported this ethos towards pure sound design, deconstructing a palette of familiar musical forms into 8 pieces of wandering, weightless movements; where Vocal samples and percussive rushes launch themselves from empty space Rhythms scatter, violently collapse, and pick themselves up again grinning with hands aloft, sprinting towards the light.

This is the sound of an artist who clearly has a deep interest in modern tropes of UK bass music and contempory electronic composition, but due to Myriam's historical grounding as a tactile, experimental audio visual artist these genres become uniquely filtered through a performative, Musique Concrete In this sense the pieces end up as somewhat hybrids, absorbing Myriam's rich performance based musical history and sweeping into With'Lumens & Profits' Myriam has managed to create something which sounds distinctly fresh in approach, whilst managing to playfully & respectfully nod towards a tidal. wave of cultural movements.

'Lumens & Profits' is heavily influenced by Myriam's own'Musical Spinning Top' A / V performance'Soft Revolvers' ... Whilst inspiration was gleamed from the performance Myriam is keen to separate the two projects, explaining-'While composing these pieces I was very occupied by the idea of ​​modulated speed or tempo that came from my spinning top performance. Seeing instruments on different tempos that fluctuate rather than run on different strict patterns. I tried to imagine freely moving instrumental lines that only momentarily align, rather A lot of the pieces rely on algorithmic arpeggiation (custom max patches), as a way to create processes that control the speed and timbral width of sounds dynamically.'"
