Christof Migone

 
Christof Migone is a multidisciplinary artist, curator and writer. Working since the mid-80s, he weaves together a multitude of media, from radio to telephones to digital objects, to form a stunning and highly dynamic practice. Combining an acute sonic sensibility with performative usages of the body, video, and the voice, his work engages corporeal presence with a subtle invasion, unsettling speech and gesture through investigative and theoretical poetics.
Migone is the co-editor, with Brandon LaBelle, of "Writing Aloud: The Sonics of Language" (Errant Bodies Press), an anthology and CD on orality, audition, and performance. His writings have been published in Aural Cultures (YYZ), S:ON (Artexte), Experimental Sound & Radio (MIT Press), Radio Rethink (Walter Phillips Gallery) and various catalogs and journals. He has curated a number of events in the sound and radio arts: Touch that Dial (1990), Radio Contortions (1991), Rappel (1994), Double Site (1998), stuttermouthface (2002). He has released six solo audio CDs on various labels (Avatar, ND, Alien 8, Locust, Oral) and has appeared on numerous compilations. He performs extensively in festivals and exhibitions around the world. He has collaborated with choreographers Lynda Gaudreau and Tammy Forsythe, turntablist Martin Tétreault, performers Claude Wampler and Kim Dawn, and sound artists Alexandre St-Onge, Michel F. Côté, and Gregory Whitehead. He currently lives in Montréal and teaches at Concordia University.
