"Monsonics was done in two steps, both for the Citysonics Festival in Mons, Belgium in June 2009. Two of the pieces - "L'air circulaire" and "L'abbatoir des Droits de l'Homme" - were first composed as soundwalks. I first went to Mons to choose interesting paths, then made the works to fit to them. For the festival, one could borrow maps and mp3 players from the organization, or one could download the soundtracks and a map from the website of the festival and live the experience on site. The pieces that appear on the LP are sligthly reworked versions. The two "La Chapelle des FUCAM" pieces are performance works made for the Festival. There are no overdubs: they were made live using software developed at Avatar, Quebec city." (J.Robert) "Jocelyn Robert lives in Québec, Canada. He works in audio art, performance art, installation, video and writing. He did many performances, solo or with Diane Landry, Laetitia Sonami and Bruit TTV.
