Regent's Lecturer, Artist in Residence at CNMAT, March 10-26, 2017

Canadian electroacoustic musician and Director of Productions Totem Contemporain, Jean-François LaPorte, introduces his sculptural instruments and experimental control mechanisms during an extended residency at CNMAT.  Active on the contemporary art scene since the middle of the 1990s, LaPorte pursues an hybrid approach that integrates sonic arts, musical composition, performance, interpretation, installation, and digital art. Since 1993, Jean-François Laporte has written more than sixty works and appears regularly on international stages. 


During his residency, Mr. LaPorte presents a number of public concerts, seminar visits, undergraduate classroom visits, workshops, and lectures.
