Artists Martin Tétreault

Turntable player, improviser, sound designer, and visual artist Martin Tétreault first started to play improvised music with the likes of Michel F Côté, René Lussier, Diane Labrosse and Jean Derome. His work with both standard and custom-made turntables has been widely recognized both here in Canada and abroad. He performs both alone or with other musicians, dancers/choreographers, poets and installation artists.

Between 1994 and 2004 he has played at various international music festivals and started to perform and record with Otomo Yoshihide, Xavier Charles and many other musicians. In 2004 choreographer Lynda Gaudreau commissioned Tétreault a piece for turntable quartet. Martin regularly works with Cas Public and Sylvain Émard Danse. His solo exhibitions include R_ _GO, Prises de son: couleurs et animées and Phonographes vinylisés. In 2015 Nicole Gingras authored a monograph devoted to his work, Des disques et un couteau.
