A philosopher by training, Sylvain Poitras explores circularity and self-reference in the fields of video, comics and electroacoustic music: that he uses images, words or sounds, he seeks, primarily, to blur the boundaries between the object and its designation.
Software designer and trombonist, it was only natural that he invented the "meta-trombone", a sophisticated processing system which curiously leads him on a path to the origins of free jazz.
From his roots as a big band trombonist, Sylvain has evolved into an experimental musician by combining his love of the trombone and his natural aptitude for computer programming.
