Based in Montreal, Chantre is a digital artist and composer. He is interested in the diversion of cultural symbols and phenomena of perceptions, in order to create works at the junction of a dramatic fictional universe and an essay. His approach has been characterized by integrating music, sound, video, programming, electronic and moving lights for creating performances and installations with volumetric visual content.
Two audiovisual works were created for his installation made up of 24 video projection screens. Memorsion (2010) focuses on the cultural memories of abandoned urban structures, while Dispergere Maiz (2008) deals with the corn crop and its associated symbolism. In 2012, he creates, Light Attraction, a performance for a giant prism that turns powerful lights into a dense mass of over-changing geometric composition.
In addition to his solo projects, he collaborates with artists for projects mainly Popcore Duo, Popcore collective, Six mil Antennas and Réflections réflexions.
Chantre has been presented and co-produced by international media art institutions such as Mois-Multi, the Society for arts and technologies, Elektra, Mapping festival, Eastern Bloc, WORM, STEIM. He has worked on various productions for Ubisoft, Moment Factory, the National Film Board of Canada and the Montreal Science Centre.
