Jen Reimer (CAN) & Max Stein (USA) are sound and media artists based in Montréal & Los Angeles. Their work explores the resonances of urban environments and the physical experience of sound and space through in-situ performances, sound installations and spatial recordings.
Since 2009 they have developed performances in Wellington Tunnel, St Urbain Underpass, Bain St-Michel (Montréal), Mãe D’ Água (Lisboa, PT), Tunnel Bénedit-Jobin (Marseille, FR), Rotonda Besana (Milan IT), Vapaan Taiteen Tila (Helsinki, FI) and Sottopassaggio di Porta Vescovo (Verona, IT). Their performances combine live and processed horn and field recordings with the inherent sonic environment to create an immersive and embodied experience of sound and space.
In 2016, they launched Sounding the City, an ongoing project that investigates the musicality of the urban soundscape through field recording and sound installations in context.
