Artist Biographies:

"Pierre-Yves Martel. Born Vanier, Ontario, Canada, 1979. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (viola da gamba, double bass, objects)

Following a unique artistic path, Pierre-Yves Martel is constantly renewing his musical identity and practice. Though a instrumentalist, he identifies himself first and foremost as a sound artist whose work oscillates between perpetual research and experimentation. It is in this spirit that he has revisited the viola da gamba, utilizing this traditional instrument in new contexts and thus reengaging it with the contemporary world. Having created an authentic musical language through non-conventional techniques and instrumental preparations, he also works outside of instrumental music altogether, using a variety of objects rife with new sonic possibilities, from contact-mics and speakers to motors, wheels, surfaces and textures."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Continuum is a project aiming at the spontaneous creation of elemental music, that is, music devoid of any aesthetic form or linear narrative. The idea is to impose rigid strictures on the initial creative perimeters in order to maximize freedom and fluidity during the performance. In part, they take the form of a steadfast commitment to the maintenance of restraint, observation, and control, in such a way as to transcend the instinct to "play" a piece of music in order to let the music "play" both the performer and the listener."-Pierre-Yves Martel
