About POWEr

Created at Mutek at Monument National (Montréal) in May 2009, POWEr is a performance based on high-voltage electromagnetic perturbations, by Alexandre Burton and Julien Roy. Using an audio-modulated Tesla coil as a live instrument, electrical arcs are generated and transformed in an ongoing, realtime audiovisual process. Electricity is used as a subtle yet intense material, manifested as an instrinsically synesthesic phenomenae.

CE3C joins the long list of presenters that have celebrated POWEr:

mutek (montréal/CA), Todaysart (Den Haag [nl] ), Transmediale (Berlin [de] ), Mois Multi (Québec [ca] ), Communikey (boulder/US), AV Festival (Newcastle [uk] ), Nuits sonores (Lyon [fr] ), Code Zero (Bratislava [sk] ), Seconde nature (Aix-en-Provence [fr] ), Sonar (Barcelona [es] ), TEKS (Trondheim [no] ), dis-­patch (belgrade [sb]) | ISEA2010 (dortmund [de]), Electric Fields (Ottawa [ca]) ….
