Jen Reimer (CAN) & Max Stein (USA) are sound artists based in Montréal. Their work explores the resonances of urban and rural sonic environments through in-situ performances, installations and spatial recordings.
Since 2008 they have created performances and installations in abandoned, transient and resonant spaces in Montréal and abroad including 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 physical experience of sound and space.
They have collaborated with various festivals and organizations including Suoni per Il Popolo, HTMlles, Inaudibles, matralab, Laboratoire sur les récits du soi mobile, Pop Montréal (Montréal, QC), Audioparc & Galerie Verticale (Laval, QC), Send + Receive (Winnipeg, MB), Nes Artist Residency (Skagaströnd, IS), Summer We Go Public (Skagaströnd, IS), Eastern Bloc (Montréal, QC), Sound Development City (Lisbon, PT & Marseille, FR), Invisible Places (São Miguel, PT, Lisboa Soa (Lisbon, PT), Äänen Lumo (Helsinki, FI), Videosoundart Festival (Milan, IT), Art in Odd Places (New York, NY), Live Arts Cultures (Venice, IT), P A T H Festival (Verona, IT), MADAM (Milan, IT), 24-Drone – Basilica Hudson (Hudson, NY), Sonoscopia (Porto, PT) and Les Digitales (Lausanne, CH).
