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.

"In this formula the listener assists to complete sound improvisation thanks to noisemaking, post-industrial sound orchestration, electronic and acoustic sources all of which leave far behind any preconceptions of music. Vibrant polyphony, underlying rhythm, and melody are heard, yet in an opaque and experimentation fashion. For their album, XYZ, Sir Martel, Sir Tétreault, and Sir Lauzier, create fertile ground."-Dame
