    Martin Messier’s work takes shape through the relationship between sound and material; he gives life to sound through various objects such as alarm clocks, sewing machines, film projectors, pens and self conceived machines. He pushes the everyday imaginary into new terrain, magnifying and reinventing their functions, flipping the customary hierarchy, making sound the driving force of movements. Messier has presented his multidisciplinary  work at esteemed events around the world, often in collaboration with Nicolas Bernier. In 2010, he founded 14 lieux, a company dedicated to sound work in the art scene. Holding a diploma in percussion, Martin Messier also has a bachelor’s degree in electroacoustic composition from the Université de Montréal, Canada.
