Jean Routhier has an audio leaning art production. Routhier is an audio wrapper, his approach similar to a store clerk, bagging everything into their sonic essence. Interested in the gaps and gasps in sounds conducive to the transmission of tales he sometimes hears in the ether, Routhier finds inspiration in everyday situations.
His work has been presented internationally and nationally at the Silence Festival (Vancouver, BC), ISEA 2006 (San José, CA, USA), Overgarden Festival (Denmark), DLux Media Arts Festival (Melbourne, Australia), Global Mix Festival (Cracow, Poland), Signal & Noise Festival (Vancouver, BC), 1994 ICMC (International Computer Music Conference, Florida, USA) La Panderia (Mexico City), École des beaux-arts (Aix-en-Provence, France), Studio Cormier (Montréal, QC), Artspace Gallery (Peterborough, ON) Helen Pitt Gallery (Vancouver, BC), Articule (Montréal, QC), Kuntsradio (Austria), CBC and Radio-Canada (Canada), and at the Upgrade 2.0, during New Forms Festival (Vancouver, BC).
