Thomas Bégin [CA]
Thomas Bégin is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Montreal. Working in installation, sculpture, and music, his recent practice incorporates mostly sound installations composed of obsolete audiovisual equipment, recycled musical instruments, and electronic hardware. The works he creates most closely resemble synthesizers, allowing for sound and noise production, but also the organisation of these sounds within the dynamic structures that emanate directly from the physical properties of the materials comprising the work itself. Bégin's current research explores the multiple possibilities of sound composition based predominantly on physical assemblage and a purely structural process.
