PRESS RELEASE

Montreal, June2, 2006 -- Agence Topo is proud to
announce the release of POST-AUDIO_DVD project, a
2-DVDs compilation of audiovisual projects
created by Montreal-based artists and featuring
over 150 minutes of video. It is a testimony to a
bourgeoning practice that combines sound and
moving images, as well as a panorama by
presenting a variety of artistic approaches that
bear the singular stamp of their creators.

The DVD_01 consists of a selection of works by
Daniel Olson, Pascal Grandmaison and Herri Kopter
(Jerome Miniere), Gennaro De Pasquale and JSR;
artists from a variety of backgrounds whose
practices range from performance, video art,
photography, new media and sound creation.

The DVD_02 features 5mm, an audiovisual work by
Gabriel Coutu-Dumont and Marc Leclair.
Originally, Marc Leclair composed and released
his musical work titled musique pour 3 femmes
enceintes on the Mutek_Rec label. The meeting
with Gabriel Coutu-Dumont led to the development
of this project in a new form which brings live
video and sound performance together. 5mm, the
title of this collaborative project, is also the
size of an embryo when it begins to take on its
first recognizable human form.

The works featured on the DVDs and selected by
Gennaro De Pasquale are primarily the fruit of
collaborations between visual and/or media
artists and electronic musicians. This ensemble
also bears witness to the rich Montreal context
at the beginning of the 21st century.The
Post-Audio_DVD is an extension of the
installation Post-Audio Esthetic, presented at
Galerie Clark in Montreal (2000), as well as the
online project Post-Audio NetLab (2004), two
projects that focused on the mutating spaces of
the musical object and sound.

The DVD is now available through Agence Topo's
website and later in specialized music and art
stores.

contemporain de Montreal, as well as an
exhibition by artist Daniel Olson at gallery
