Christian Carrière is a sound artist and musician based in Montreal, Canada. His work lives in the dreamy grey zone between sound design, soundscape and music. In recent years, his practice has largely been driven by the ‘no-input console’ as his main instrument and sound source. He also has a fascination with audio collage and semantic mash-ups, which come into play in the conceptual, gallery and museum-based work he contributes to. He has released several albums, scored a few independent films and created sound installations for gallery and museum projects. His main collaborators include experimental band Interceiving, artist collective CRUM (Centre de recherche urbaine de Montréal), artist Douglas Scholes, shadow puppeteers Mere Phantoms, and field recording collective Lanark Land Art Recording Group.
