jake moore/steve bates
Lanterner with Karl Lemieux

On December 2, sound artist and musician Steve Bates, whose work Concertina is on display in the Triennial, will offer us a Black White Red Nocturne. A graduate of the punk rock scene and founder of the Winnipeg sound art festival Send+Receive, Bates takes the stage with distinctive energy and is proposing a performative Nocturne of electronic noise music. This performance will also feature jake moore (also in the Triennial), Lanterner (Steve’s noise duo with Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt) in collaboration with filmmaker Karl Lemieux, as well as Maussade (Bruno Julian) who is offering a solo set. Live sound by Timothy Herzog.

jake moore & steve bates - 100 Lines
jake moore works at the interweaving of object, space, sound, and text making in a hybrid yet fluid practice of installation, design, and performative acts. Predicated by a notion of exchange and emissive potential, she works in any medium necessary.

For Black White Red, jake and steve will be performing excerpts from 100 Lines, a text-piece. 100 Lines gathers lyrics from punk and post-punk groups they imagined critical to their aesthetic and political experience. Each assigned the other the task of choosing 50 lines from lyrics of punk and post-punk bands, a critical noise they imagine as fundamental to their aesthetic and politic experience.

Lanterner with Karl Lemieux
Lanterner are a two piece improvising group that shifts between rock, noise and drone. Tangled pop songs with stuttered beats slide into full-on noise workouts. Their debut full-length CD was released by ORAL Records in September, 2011. For this performance they are joined by internationally recognized filmmaker, Karl Lemieux.

MAUSSADE - Choc Septique
BRUNO JULIAN est un musicien autodidacte vivant et travaillant à Montréal. Il poursuit une exploration sonore depuis le milieu des années 90, notamment avec le duo HYENA HIVE, collaboration s’inscrivant dans l’esthétique industrielle de la fin des années 70 et du bruitisme contemporain.

Choc Septique est une performance qui découle directement d’événements ayant eu lieu lors de l’année 2010, une expérience limite d’où est aussi né MAUSSADE. Sa démarche insiste explicitement sur l’endurance en se concentrant sur les seuils de la perception sonore, un seuil qui est parfois celui de la douleur.
