"Montreal Sound Matter / Montréal Matières Sonore brings together eight Canadian and international sound artists. The project began with a workshop on environmental sound collecting by Francisco López and led to the development of a collective sound project including an album, a sound installation, and a concert. This is the recording. The artists create an immersive sound installation made up of fragments of Montreal, which propose a reflection and a questioning on the city. Far from being a postcard, these sound portraits suggest an abstract view of Montreal made up of fragments modeled or transformed to the liking of the artists. Through these places turned non-places and thus more or less unrecognizable, the pieces present an interesting variety of aesthetics, constructions and creative processes." -- Esther Bourdages
