Sur Fond Blanc
Composers Nicolas Bernier and Jacques Poulin-Denis began their collaboration in 2006. Their pro-active approach has taken them into several areas of media art, including electronic and acoustic music, soundscapes, and video art. The duo's inspiration is the result of a continual dialogue, material-sharing and neuron transference, confrontation, and simultaneous sound experimentation. They have made good use of their accumulated experience in dance and multimedia productions to concentrate mainly on music for stage performances. Working with the Ekumen collective, their music have been broadcast all over the world in many electronic music and digital arts festivals. Their CD 'études no.3 pour cordes et poulies' has been well received by the press like the Exclaim! (Canada) who said that their "... music that has the precision, inner life and depth of field inherent to accomplished electroacoustic work..." and in Vital Weekly (Netherlands) who said that the album is "very vibrant and lively."
