«All structures on the surface of the earth vibrate, nothing is at rest: each place or building vibrates differently, depending on its materials, dimensions and components, as well as the sources around it. Every building speaks a unique language.»
As a composer and performer, Michael Gendreau chooses to work with or against a venue. His live performances are physical and sensory experiences. They are the result of different phases of research and recordings, such as formal design and structural analysis of the room and its environment, as the composition material is drawn from the room and the from the concert itself.
