Montreal-based Christian Richer (synths, guitar,computers, field recordings) creates music based on the nuances of the found sound in everyday life using guitars, samples, digital manipulation, pots and pans, and just about anything and everything else. Subtle, specific and scientific, his music picks up where Cage left off. For his live set-up he has deconstructed his songs, and transfered all the sounds onto several audiocassette tapes resulting in a dynamic and captivating performance using only tape decks and a synthesizer Lab Series amplifier. The music and field recordings from his albums are still recognizable and improvisationally reconstructed on the spot.
