In its most recent issue (vol. 43, no. 5), the Leonardo Journal examines the project Auditory Tactics. Auditory Tactics is the product of an initial collaboration between Philippe Pasquier and Philippe-Aubert Gauthier. This installation, created in 2007 during a sound and media art residency at Vidéographe’s “PARC laboratory” in Montreal, has been exhibited at venues such as the 2007 PureData Convention in Montreal.
The sound artist Philippe-Aubert Gauthier is also a junior mechanical engineer who holds an M.Sc. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering. He is currently a postdoctoral intern at the Université de Sherbrooke. His research centres on acoustics and the spatial reproduction of sound. His work as an artist has taken several forms: work on a fixed support, generative composition, sound installation, sound spatialisation, sound performance and performance.
After studying computer science, artificial intelligence and cognitive science in Europe, Philippe Pasquier wrote his doctoral dissertation under the aegis of the DAMAS [Dialogue, Agent, Multi-AgentS] laboratory at Université Laval in Quebec City. He is also a composer and multidisciplinary artist whose activities encompass artistic creation, organising and administering events and theoretical reflection. He is particularly interested in the relationship between art, science and technology.
