Montréal-based DJ, improviser, sound designer and artist, Martin Tétreault creates sound performances with turntables he has made or adapted himself. He has participated in numerous sound and media arts festivals and events in Quebec and abroad. He has been involved in numerous music, dance, poetry, installation and performance projects and has made more than 50 discs with artists from Quebec and beyond. In 2004, at the request of choreographer Lynda Gaudreau, he developed a musical notation system and surfaces to play, which led him to establish and perform with the turntable quartet Quatuor de tourne-disques, and with whom he released Points, lignes avec haut-parleurs on the Oral label. This affinity for dance continues with recent creations for Le chant des sirènes, by Sylvain Émard Danse, and 9, by Hélène Blackburn for Cas public. In 2015, curator Nicole Gingras published Des disques et un couteau, a monograph documenting Tétreault’s artistic work. SMQC/MartinTétreault
