Mario Côté

Mario Côté, painter, experimental video and art documentary director, lives and works in Montreal. He is interested in sound and music as image propellants in the visual arts. Among other things, he practices the "recording drawing" of sound ambiences, as a monk-copist would perform today without the technological means at our disposal. Sitting down with a board, paper and pencil, he creates "low-definition" recordings. He transcribes sounds methodically from a continuous timeline. Clearly, sound is a powerful gas pedal of the imaginary.
