Upcoming matralab explore guests Jean-François Laporte and Benjamin Thigpen will perform their project, Rust for Montreal Nouvelles Musiques. The show will commence at 9pm in the Fine Arts Black Box. The inspiration for this project is through the imagery of decay; specifically the oxidation process of material.
This will be a comprovisation concert of live acoustic and electronic instruments. These sounds will create an interactive organic experience with the space through blocks of sound.
