 « Alexis Langevin-Tétrault wowed us with a visually arresting live set built around a series of ropes and sensors that had to be seen to be believed, pulling on the cords like he was trying to complete an assault course.  » Fact Magazine

« Montreal’s Alexis Langevin-Tetrault proved a draw, as he reframed electroacoustic performance as full-body workout with the help of a custom-built instrument that looked like a Byzantine chest extensor.  » Crack Magazine

« The physicality of Langevin-Tétrault’s performance would have been enough as a spectacle on its own, yet it was sonically very impressive too – harsh-gated nuclear fission synthesis filling every crevice of space. » Stray Landings

Although he is using a laptop he doesn’t refer it to at all through the performance, which is as a result much more unexpectedly visceral and emotional.
