Marc-André Cossette is a Canadian trans-disciplinary artist working on the relation between technology and performing arts using sound, visual, and interaction design. Cossette holds a BA in Interactive Media and a Master’s in Experimental Media (UQAM). He is now pursuing a PhD program at Concordia University in which he explores the use of Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Life algorithms to create generative dance performances. In addition to his research-creation practice, Cossette has collaborated with several artists as a sound, visual, interaction, and stage designer. He is also the co-creator and co-host of the REC podcast series on research-creation produced in collaboration with CHOQ.fm and the Hexagram Network.
Marc-André Cossette CA/QC — Altérité Numérique
Performance of generative and choreographic musical improvisation. Altérité Numérique is a research-creation project that aims to study the relationship between a dancer and an interactive digital system. During the piece, the dancer improvises in movement to algorithmically generated electronic music. The music reacts to her movements and changes autonomously throughout the piece.
