exciting announcement about our next edition of framework:seasonal! any 

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in canada by france 
jobin, and is the latest installment in her ongoing series, 'these are a 
few of my favorite things.' for more information see her website at 
http://www.francejobin.com. from the producer:

As mentioned in earlier installments, my interpretation of field 
recording based works, is very broad however, the thread I like to 
follow is to find artists who have mastered  their unique identity 
through the music of sound.

This edition of "my favorite things", is devoted to a particular live 
event that happened in Montreal in May 2011, and i was lucky enough to 

Musique d'impression

Three composers, here and abroad, two live performances and a 
presentation of audio book.

The young and dynamic organization of electroacoustic music Ekumen 
Montreal, is investing again, in an intimate and unusual presentation, 
this time, music, printing and its surroundings.

The event invaded, the  book binding studio of Cecile Cote, a small 
universe of stories printed, ready to be told, to take life and mix with 
the presence and the imagination of each.

Ekumen offered a unique opportunity for Montrealers to visit or revisit 
Geographic Words, the sound performance of the internationally acclaimed 
multidisciplinary artist Herman Kolgen, to get carried away by the 
merger Sieste05 haunting book, created by the composer Olivier Girouard 
and graphics by Urban9 or discover through "The underneath of things", 
the world premiere of the universe purring and delicate sound of British 
artist Orla Wren.

Travel, sound and magnetic proximity between artist, audience and venue 
Inspired by the intimacy of the place and a magnetic proximity 
exacerbated with the public, each artist offers a work that manipulates 
and reinvents the laws of the size, but takes its support on a very 
human scale. Through a multidirectional interplay, each confronts a 
series of unexpected encounters solitary or in common. The public is 
propelled, elastic jump, a leaping camera revealing voluptuous relative 
breaths , fragile voice or laughing, without reference to an environment 
where successive points and leaks resonate.

Three works

Geographic words, the very gripping and poetic performance offset by 
Herman Kolgen suddenly eradicates our dreams inside our thoughts to 
bring to light and melt back into the mass of sound that envelops us.

Facing the book Sieste05 Olivier Girouard & Urban9, connected by Cecile 
herself, our daydreams find the comfort of their intimate loneliness and 
gives way to a sound space that forms the imagination.

The underneath of things, the performance of Orla Wren Music is 
specially created for printing. The artist is inspired by the real 
machine tools and workshop revealing macroscopic details , often hidden 
around us, and its profound effect on the sensory experience of life, to 
listen and to hear.

Ekumen is an organisation that facilitates the gathering of artists and 
the exploration of sound art and electroacoustic music.

Artistic director since December 2010, Olivier Girouard is pursuing 
Ekumen’s mandate to offer a space for local and international creation 
and dissemination, as well as supporting the production of works and 

Ekumen stands out not only by proposing original listening situations – 
making music with unusual objects in atypical places, but also through a 
constant thirst for exchange and the integration of other art forms and 
techniques. Research, curiosity and the unearthing of a variety of 
platforms to present work to an audience: these are integral elements of 
Ekumen’s creativity.

Ekumen moves the soundscapes we speak of – instead of contemplating 
them, we travel inside.
