Myriam Boucher is a video and sound artist based in Montréal, Canada. Her sensitive and polymorphic work concerns the intimate dialogue between music, sound and image, through visual music, audiovisual performance, Vjing and immersive projects. Fascinated by the natural environment, she creates audiovisual compositions from the landscape and the relationship that human maintains with it. Her work, “evocative in its dynamism, brings its audience close to something akin to feeling multiple emotions all at once” (The Link). Boucher’s compositions range from works for orchestra, ensemble, collaborative and solo A/V performances.
Myriam Boucher CA/QC — LITTORAL
LITTORAL is an audiovisual performance combining sculptural objects, sound and light. LITTORAL explores concepts concerned with rising sea levels by incorporating scientific data around coastal erosion, thermal expansion, sediment compaction, and the accelerating effects of climate change. Fusing the virtual and the real; the physical and the imaginary, they perform live with objects, field recordings, lights, lenses and water, to explore the refraction of sound and light integrated with digital abstractions and manipulations. This audiovisual piece seeks to explore boundaries and edges by inhabiting the spaces in between.
