La gerçure des alentours Guillaume Côté [Guillaume Cote]

Composed almost exclusively around synthetic sounds and based on the pejorative representation of sound in literary works of the North, the second piece of my cycle themed on the North and on Quebec’s landscape underlines the sounds in the North as something alien, aggressive, unnatural, dull and poor. Through the use of the writings of Marie Uguay, the work attempts to deal with and give human sensitivity to the austere vision of the Nordic imaginary. Thanks to Markita Boies for the narration and Stephan Kovacs for the use of the writings of Marie Uguay (Poèmes, Éditions du Boréal).
