In august 1999, i came back from a 3 month trip to Indonesia, i had my first "big" solo show at Théatre Lachapelle that was to be recorded by Hélène Prévost for her Radio-Canada show, Le Navire Night. I wrote most of Sucre3 that month still under the spell of the music i had heard there, as live songs to perform with Vincent Morisset doing the visuals. He designed this amazing digital puppet that he could manipulate to my music. We also performed together on a huge outdoor stage at Parc Lafontaine in front of an very clueless random audience of 700. Every weekend the park had classical concerts, except that one wich was booked with the Videographe to celebrate their 25th year. So the crowd was mainly Plateau families eating hot dogs vs some of our friends. Had a little Rite of Spring moment, as some people started arguing that this was horrible and others screaming at them to "shut up, it's art".
10 years later we collaborated again with digital puppetry on the NFB interactive film, Bla Bla (blabla.onf.ca
