LES JEUDIS TOUT OUÏE
- Special Activity
Myléna Bergeron studied Composition and Singing at the Université de Montréal. Specialized in experimental electronic music, her practice relates to performance and sound improvisation. Since 2002, Myléna Bergeron has developed a method of composition that delicately combones live sound recording and the most singular alterations. From Newfoundland to Shanghai, she performs solo, video-music duo with the photographer Caroline Hayeur or duo/trio with Magali Babin and I8U. She has written two albums: Chronopée (1), Chronopée (2), under the Oral label in 2002 and 2006.

Myléna Bergeron works from samples of sounds gleaned from the urban environment, the nature or a computer. From these samples, she reconstructs quiet and voluptuous universes. Strangely moving sounds inhabit her enveloping, dreamlike and evocative soundscapes. The sound of everyday life are transformed into melodies. Streets sounds become lullabies. She creates a layered music, like stratus, these clouds that look like a continuous veil. At Galerie B-312, she will raise the veil on the sonorous traces of filiationSchmitz Documenta I – Une ardeur d’avance.
