"In the spring of 2006, Spanish sound artist Francisco Lopez led a composition workshop in Montreal. A master of the field recording and its use in acousmatic composition, Lopez asked the participants to share their urban field recordings. From their work came a compact disc, Montreal Sound Matter on Pogus, and an exhibition presented at the Fonderie Darling in Montreal.
The Victoriaville Matiere Sonore project continues the work started in the metropolis. For this occasion, the original seven participants have agreed to get together again, under Lopez's direction, and create a new collective work from scratch. First, they came to Victoriaville to make field recordings in various public and private spaces, recordings that have been once again shared with the group. Then, they each produced a new piece using this common soundbank. However, this time around Lopez did add one extra rule: a sequential order has been set, so that composers had to use, as the starting point for their own composition, the piece of the composer coming before them. As a result, we have a long acousmatic work in eight sections, each section picking up where the previous one has left."-Victo
