The Isotone studio celebrates its 5th anniversary! An event combining exhibition and party with Ramzilla, Gene Tellem, Kris Guilty and Mok-T.
To celebrate its 5th anniversary, the Isotone studio invites you to an evening at the crossroads between exhibition, party and exchange. To honor the ties that unite us with some of the local scene’s players, Ramzilla, Gene Tellem, Kris Guilty and Mok-T will be at the helm of the musical program. Four multimedia installations will also inhabit the Espace SAT for the evening, first in the format of an immersive exhibition, then as a scenography to accompany the festivities. Of course, we have many other surprises in store throughout the evening to celebrate these 5 years together!
Articulated around the notion of Transformation, this corpus of creations is thought of as a whole inviting us to estimate the extent of the nuances that compose us. Doubt, pause, breathing and renewal are the themes of these installations that come together in harmony with the soundscapes diffused in the space. Thought as a praise to the feeling of accomplishment in softness which crosses us within the studio for these last 5 years, this exhibition invites you to a quiet wandering where each one can let go, let take and impregnate itself of each of the works while exchanging around a glass.
After 9 pm, the space transforms to give way to the party under the direction of DJs Ramzilla, Gene Tellem, Kris Guilty and Mok-T, all friends (or members) from the studio. The installations of the exhibition will remain accessible all evening to accompany your dance steps and other moments of pause or contemplation.
From an intention as a direction, from a point to a form, from technology to emotion, Isotone explores digital oceans in search of new creative horizons. Their works are shaped by experimentation, moving freely through the multiple know-how of digital arts. Through the diversity of their artistic backgrounds, they seek to weave a unique practice linked by the multiple interactions of their experiences. From visual creation to musical composition, from programming to painting, they always put technique at the service of sensitivity; a digital art in search of poetry. As an extension of the links that unite them, their projects bear the marks of the listening, respect and consideration they show within the studio. Isotone is composed of Félix Bonjour, Hugo Fournier, Lilian Guiran and Bar Rubinstein. Founded in Montreal in 2018, they now share their activity between Quebec and France with various festivals and partners such as Mutek, MAPP_MTL, Studio des 7 Doigts, Juste Pour Rire, Quebec Cinema, FNC, Videotron etc.
Ramzilla is a musician, DJ, and visual artist from Montreal. She has released several albums since 2012, creating a musical universe evocative of a mysterious world. She tours internationally performing her own music and as a DJ, and Hyphea, was released in December 2022 on the Music From Memory label (Netherlands).
Whether she's taking center stage as a DJ or working in the studio, Gene Tellem communicates her interpretation of house and techno with soul and playfulness, intuitively balancing the intellectual and the physical. Her productions are usually born out of the imagination and energy associated with electronic music events. She released her first output Who Says No in 2017 on Montreal's SOBO label, which later led to two releases on the London-based Wolf Music label. Gene Tellem then launched her own label, Bienvenue Recordings, in 2019, making her way among the most influential players in the international house scene.
Kris Guilty is the founder and head of La Rama, a record store and label based in Montreal’s Mile End district. His unsurprisingly extensive and well-curated record arsenal is complemented by an impeccable command of vinyl deejaying and crowd-reading.
While better known for his groovy sets that saunter on the borders of house, funk, and boogie, Kris is a certified beast on the decks when it comes to the harder, edgier corners of his record bag.
Mok-T is an artist based in Montreal who practices music influenced by the spectrum House and Dub. For Mok-T, it is sharing and the positive vibes of a dancefloor that prevail in his career as an artist. He also practices digital art with Isotone studio. In 2020, he released his first tracks on Kizi Garden Records, and his last vinyl project on La Rama Dubs in 2021.
