Stephanie Castonguay

Driven by experimentation, Castonguay investigates electronic audio circuitry as a physical process and phenomenon that leaves a palpable, audible trace. Her approach to sound and DIY electronics is playful, practical, and organic: she disassembles and repurposes small, obsolete, barely audible machines to reveal the resonance, glitches, and random sounds unexpectedly hidden within.

Castonguay’s work has been presented in Montreal and abroad, at the Festival International Montréal/Nouvelles Musiques, Biennale Internationale d’Art Numérique, Perte de Signal, Eastern Bloc, Fondation Molinari, Centre Fokal (Ht), and STEIM (Nl). She has performed in various festivals including Sight & Sound, PirateBlocRadio, Ibrida Pluri II, Printemps Numériques, Metarythmes, Instruments Make Play (Nl), Tsonami Sound Art Festival (Cl), Mutek (Ca) and most recently, at Espacio Fundación Telefónica (Pe). She is a member of the artist-run centre, Perte de Signal.
