LES FANTÔMES DES ESPACES PUBLICS / GHOSTS OF PUBLIC SPACES

GHOSTS OF PUBLIC SPACES / ACTIONS!
Produced by MINUTE, in collaboration with the Suoni per Il Popolo festival, Ghosts of Public Spaces / Actions! is a laboratory for the creation and dissemination of advanced music.
Over four consecutive days, from June 11 to June 15, nineteen artists engage with the sonic potential of the city of Montreal, to activate elements of its architecture and public spaces.
Whether an outdoor agora, an administrative building, a shopping mall or an office tower, public spaces are defined by movement, commerce and communication. At the same time, they are also places where strange and furtive silhouettes mingle with silent and ghostly presences. In this social nebula, paths are crossed and recrossed constantly without ever colliding. To these invisibles, the city can be heard as a world of sounds that are always arriving and vanishing. Fading footsteps mix with the echo of yesterdays conversations. While some suffer, others listen with great care.
Ghosts of Public Spaces invites you to a different kind of encounter with the sonic fabric of the city.
