VJing is the emerging art of live performance of visual projections with music. Here is your opportunity to learn VJ technique hands-on from an award-winning artist who is master in both visuals and music production. Montréal-based video and sound artist Myriam Boucher will teach aspects of her approach to live performance with Resolume software, with special attention to questions of how to work with musical structures and to create organic visual textures and transformations.
Myriam Boucher has VJ’d for numerous international artists, including Mind Against (IT), Medasin (US), Deadboy (GB), The Zenker Brothers (GE), Nina Las Vegas (AU), Automatisme (CA), Equiknoxx (JM), and DJ Lag (ZA) – and at major events such as Mutek (CA, AE) and Igloofest (CA). Her commission list is varied and distinguished and includes the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal (OSM), Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (NEM), Magnitude6, Collectif9 and Architek Percussion.
Her work has won prizes in the 2015 and 2016 (first prize) JTTP awards, the LUFF 2017 (best experimental short-movie award), the 2015 JIM Electroacoustic Compositions Competition and the Bourse Euterke 2015, and has been presented at many international events and places, including Kontakte (DE), Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois (CA), Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain de Strasbourg (FR), and Akousma (CA).
