Pierre LeBlanc, aka The/La Commission GEDEON Commission
Pierre’s practice is best described as the contemporary digital expression of sound art. It involves accumulating sensory data and transforming it in unusual ways with the use of effects, loops and layers. His work uses images and sounds created at different periods, places and states of mind. It is essentially the creative act in reverse – a cut-up in its purest form. Pierre’s work generates from a simple act: selecting an auditory stimulus, making it audible by playing it, then building a structure around it intuitively. This stimulus can be texture, rhythm, voice or noise. The process is the product.
While with the DART program, Pierre produced a full album, “Twillingate Sessions” created from sounds collected entirely from Twillingate. He also created the film “8WKS – Twillingate” incorporating video from the town. View and listen to his work below and experience Twillingate in a whole new way.
