Phile (Philippe Patenaude)

A resident of the Gaspé Peninsula since 2002, Phile has created two albums: Le corps territoire, in which he incorporated sounds captured both in nature and in the city, and Les vents violents, with its catchy, introspective songs. He offers creation workshops in regional schools.

Gaëtan Essiambre

She’s currently studying popular performance with a keyboard concentration at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), and teaching music.

Juan Sebastián Larobina

Born in Argentina, Juan Sebastián Larobina grew up in Mexico before eventually moving to the Gaspé region, where he was quick to settle in and immerse himself in the culture. His music and poetry – reflections of encounters made in the course of a good deal of travel – are fundamentally international.

Trames collective

Cofounded in 2015 by sound artists Guillaume Campion and Guillaume Côté, the Trames collective works in sound creation, media arts and cultural mediation. Through their realizations the Gaspesian-born duo weave links between music, sound, territory and community, showcasing listening as a tool for creating and for interpreting the world.

Monsieur Nokturn (Olivier Brien)

For over 10 years, Monsieur Nokturn has been appearing on electronic stages in Québec to share the results of his original music research. A DJ and producer, he turns to older art in his blend of classical melodies and “underground” laments.

Spacey Koala

François Clavet sculpts sounds, wields a guitar and works as an arranger. He converses with his audience by way of the worlds he creates out of the wealth of sound and music that surrounds him. A native of the city of Gaspé who’s taken his music project Spacey Koala to different countries, he keeps on fine-tuning his art.

Alex Pelletier

A native of Port-Cartier, Alex Pelletier has been heard on the Québec scene as a guitarist and bassist alongside Patrice Michaud, Lisa Leblanc, Maxime Landry, Pat The White and Gaëtan Essiambre, among others.
