Contemporary artists can activate archival collections through research,
study, and re-interpretation. In this webinar, guests will be treated to a
performance by Myriam Gendron, whose musical works draw on this concept
through the interpretation of poetry and traditional songs. Gendron will
perform selections from her 2021 release Ma délire – Songs of love, lost &
found (Feeding Tube/Les Albums Claus), engage in conversation with ARSC E&T
Co-Chairs, and take attendee questions.
About Myriam Gendron: Born in Ottawa in 1988 and raised between the
province of Quebec, Washington D.C. and Paris, Myriam Gendron settled in
Montreal at the age of sixteen, where she currently makes her living as a
book dealer. In 2014, she released Not So Deep As A Well, a nine-track
album made from poems by Dorothy Parker that she set to music. The
critically-acclaimed record, released by Feeding Tube Records and Mama Bird
Recording Co., was picked for many best-of-the-year lists. Richard Meltzer
wrote that Not So Deep As A Well, “is the hottest—and FINEST!—Impossible
Love collection in, I dunno, 30 years.” Seven years later, in 2021, Myriam
Gendron released Ma délire — Songs of love, lost & found, a very modern
exploration of North American folk tales and traditional melodies. The
bilingual double album of 75 minutes, released on October 1st 2021 by
Feeding Tube Records and Les Albums Claus, is very well received by local
and international musical critique.
We hope to see you there!
