Line Katcho — Friday

Line Katcho


Line Katcho is a composer and audio-visual artist from Montreal. Primarily interested in sound and image as demonstrations of motion, forces or gestures, she also distinguishes herself through an affinity for perceptual games, and a talent for use of affect. She holds a Master's degree in electroacoustic composition from the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal and in Commercial Photography at Dawson College she tends to mix styles, genres and applied methods. Radiating a narrative and cinematic feel, her work is driven and provocative, fusing reference to abstraction, experimentation to tradition. Her empirical approach aims at creating a sensory and cathartic experience, rooted in expression, in pursuit of authenticity. Her work has been presented internationally at festivals and events such as MUTEK (MTL, AR, MX, ES), Scopitone, Intonal, Sonica, Totem Électrique, iX Symposium and Elektra. She was awarded the first prize in the 2014 electroacoustic competition Jeux de Temps/ Times Play and the Award of Distinction in the audio-visual category at the MA/IN 2016 Festival. She was artist-in- residence and has been commissioned by organizations such as Société des Arts Technologiques, Totem Contemporain and Espace IM(media). Line Katcho actively collaborates and also performs as a VJ under the moniker La Hyèna.
