"Sonographe developed out of Vidéographe and, true to its philosophy of promoting popular culture, exists to offer all those who have something to communicate the opportunity to do so".
Sonographe opened on October 30, 1973. It's mandate was to produce sound tapes. We must remember that at the time, there were few homes with VCRs and video was still a relatively specialized technology. On the other hand, cassette players had been used for about twenty years. Jean-Jacques Leduc and Garnier Poulin, Sonographe's main organizers, introduce us to the place that was an important phase in Vidéographe's development. Projects in storytelling, music, words, songs, essays, documents and poetry are all discussed, and a number of images shot during recording sessions punctuate the narration.
