Sabrina Ratté & Roger Tellier-Craig
Computer, video synthesizers, 3D animation
Inspired by the performative tradition that combines electronic sound and video art, visual artist Sabrina Ratté and electronic music composer Roger Tellier-Craig come together to present "Other Spaces", an audio-visual performance bringing together revisited existing works as well as new material. Through the creation of abstract architectural structures and electronic landscapes, Ratté's video images constantly dialogue with the ethereal sounds and futuristic impulses generated by Tellier-Craig. Together, they aim to create an immersive audiovisual experience where sound and image are inseparable.
Sabrina Ratté is a Canadian artist living in Montreal. Her practice focuses on the multiple manifestations of the digital image: analog video, 3D animation, photography, printing, sculpture, virtual reality and installation. The constant integration of new techniques allows her to explore the themes that run through her work in ever-changing forms: the influence of architecture and the digital environment on our perception of the world, the relationship we have with the virtual aspect of existence, the fusion between technology and the organic world. Her works are situated halfway between abstraction and figurative, landscape and architecture, and on the thin line that separates the real from the virtual.
Roger Tellier-Craig is a composer based out of Montreal, Canada. He is a founding member of Fly Pan Am, Et Sans (with Alexandre St-Onge), Set Fire To Flames and Le Révélateur (with Sabrina Ratté). These projects have seen him tour extensively in Canada, Europe, the United States and Japan, as well as releasing records with Constellation, Locust, Alien 8, Fat Cat, Root Strata, Gneiss Things, NNA Tapes, Where To Now?, Dekorder and Second Editions.
He has composed music for film and various art projects, working with Denis Côté, Brigitte Haentjens, Albéric Aurtenèche, Zaynê Akyol, Projet EVA, Lynda Gaudreau, as well as providing the score to most of Sabrina Ratté's video works. He has also worked closely with the choreographer Dana Gingras over the past 15 years. He holds a certificate in electroacoustic composition from the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal.
