Sonar is mixing music, technology, science and innovation at its next Sonar+D event. This Thursday, Mazda Space will play host to a hypnotising show by Montreal artist Myriam Bleau, in which she creates music using sensors and spinning disks. Bleau uses what looks like record-shaped spinning tops, each with its own sound and sensor, which when spun emit a different sound. The combination of these sounds creates music likened to ‘the experimental side of IDM, danceable techno and hip-hop beats’. The LED lights on the disks, strengthen and fade according to the speed at which they’re turning, adding to the hypnotic atmosphere created by Bleau’s project. Clearly a music fanatic, as well as studying for her Master’s Degree for composition, Bleau also plays the guitar, cello and piano. Although it might sound a little complicated, the overall experience is like nothing you’ve ever seen or heard.
