Description

And the inaugural concert features Martin Tétreault’s turntable ensemble, Quatuor de tourne-disques. Montréal-based Tétreault is a world-renowned turntablist and free improviser with a background in visual arts. He is exploring all the possibilities turntables have to offer, from motor sounds and parasitic sounds to styluses on prepared surfaces and modified LPs. This is not merely an invitation to the museum: Tétreault makes the object itself tell its tale — its reflections and feelings, which we have been distractedly ignoring, spin after spin.
