Montreal, September 8, 2015 – As part of the Measure to assist the deployment of digital infrastructures of the Conseil des arts et de lettres du Québec and the Plan Culturel Numérique of the Ministère de la culture et des communications, the PERTE DE SIGNAL art centre announces the establishment of a 4K digital control room in its RUSTINES|LAB.
“This is an important investment for artists and the community, but above all for the dissemination of Quebec culture online and internationally,” emphasizes Robin Dupuis, general director of PERTE DE SIGNAL.
With this control room, the Centre transforms its RUSTINES|LAB, initially designed for projection, into a recording studio and an online broadcasting studio. Digital artists will now have access to a recording studio infrastructure of multicam and Ultra HD to document, make, and even stream their projects on various online streaming platforms.
“This will transform the production spaces of the PERTE DE SIGNAL centre into a virtual and live venue. A vibrant, open, and public lab that can be adjusted according to the needs of artists and members of the community wishing to experiment with new modes of working on the web,” states Sofian Audry, president of PERTE DE SIGNAL.
PERTE DE SIGNAL has been dedicated to the development and dissemination of digital art for over 20 years and has become an important actor both in Quebec and abroad. Serving a fully active community and supporting over twenty artists in the heart of the creation and dissemination hub Pied carré, in Montreal, the Centre is an open source workshop and a place to experiment and connect with others that provides specialized equipment and mediates between different digital art practices. Through this lab space, PERTE DE SIGNAL highlights innovative and original creations by contemporary Quebecois and international artists. perte-de-signal.org
