Les œuvres de ce créateur originaire de Baie-Comeau constituent des écosystèmes impliquant des dispositifs audiovisuels fondés sur des technologies numériques de pointe, mais aussi sur l’interprétation à la fois physique et théâtralisée.

Alexis Langevin-Tétrault wowed us with a visually arresting live that had to be seen to be believed, 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.

Another of the more vivid performances came from Alexis Langevin-Tétrault, performing as part of Mutek’s curation of wonderful science-fiction oddities. 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.

Alexis Langevin-Tétrault really made an impression with his steel construction – creating his micro electric thunderstorm.

 This is a digital sound sculpture as much as a musical performance. 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. He is battling and seducing the machine rather than playing it like a musical instrument: it’s a different kind of physical virtuosity. (…) Interferences looks like someone who has created a device to generate a time portal but is a powerfully compelling and highly-watchable exposure to a new digital language that is at once fleetingly familiar and alien.
